  9. Hey Jeff, Try now should be fixed Thanks, Robbie.
  10. Hey guys, So iv decided the best way is to delete all members than had 0 posts, We've just deleted over 100 000 "hibernated" members accounts, 99% of them where probably spam accounts, This should stop 99 % of the spam, We now also have a better registration system in place as well Let me know if anyone finds any spam and if you want anything else changed
  11. Yep, The problem i am told is that there are alot of members that are "hibernated" and they can come out at any point, This software has alot better registration settings to stop spammers signing up, However there are already alot of people who have signed up who are probably spammers. I am hoping over the next week that 99% of them will spam and then we can ban them and stop it for once and all! I have cleaned up the shed a bit, If you find any spam please do report it Thanks, Robert
  12. Hey Guys, Yes I too have been having problems geting to the website, We should be all good now! Don't think we have lost many posts in the transfer, We are still fixing up a couple of bugs but we are on a new server with new software
  13. Hey Guys, Some of you may have noticed the forums and website been slow lately, And Sometimes a funny message down the bottom with a heap of jumble jumble on it, The current server we are using to run the forums and website is under alot of load and need to be upgraded (again i know) So we have decided to also get some new software, As I am not 100% happy with this software that we are currently using and upgraded to. During the next week the website will be moved and you may not be able to access the forums for a short period, Thanks, Robert Nixon
  14. Hey Guys, Sorry about all the spam, Just so you know there is a image verification when you sign up as well as having to verify your email address before you can post, We also have a "Spam Bot" called Akismet, And that stops about 85% of the spam that gets posted, The other 15% is what you guys see, I will have a play with the software tonight and see what else we can do, Always open to suggestions Thanks,
  15. Current downhaul is 8:1 and Mainsheet 7:1 Ill try and find some more photos however there isnt alot as it has only been used twice - once at lake boga and once at parkdale yacht club in class races, In the past people have tried going to a bigger than the 8:1 on the downhaul, however this seams to make the block not actually want to turn and the rope ends up just sliding instead of the block turning, As a class we are still working out the regulations that would be adopted to change the sail design,
  16. I think theres about 2 or 3 arrows that get built every year - possibly more, I built a brand new cobra about two years ago now, More cobras and stingrays get refurbished then get built,
  17. [ATTACH=CONFIG]1348[/ATTACH] Hey guys, So I went and ordered a square top for the cobra! We got it just in time for Easter and for the vic state titles, We have also kept the same sail area as what we used to have, So there is no change to same area. Results speak for themselves with myself winning 5 out of 6 races, However on the last race I used my old sail and let someone else use the square top and was still out in front! We haven't had time to do alot of club racing however early results indicate that there is no problem with our masts! The feedback we have had so far is that mos
  18. Hey Guys, What does everyone think of having a square top mainsail on the cobra? I know there has been some talk of this before, and the real question was will the mast hold it up or just snap? Also the Vic Cobra state titles are on a Lake Boga over there EASTER REGATTA! See you all there!
