There are still quite a few lurkers, and more than a few spammers!
@robbiew7680, thank you for reporting the bad stuff. Posts removed and users banned.

We are grateful/proud for people like numpty and doe99 that keep posting and being absolute BEASTS.
We wish there were more like robbiew7680 that come back to keep the spirit alive.

Some simple advertising could go a long way? Just a couple of reddit posts on some subs about this could generate interest?? Plus a quick little update on the website and bam!

Happy to help with suggestions

@numpty good idea! Let revive the simplefit community and the simple (but not easy) workout routine!
So i can contribute for example with a review on reddit?! Just have to start (again) to train :lol: and i do some after/now pics

Im a new member, but a lurker for many years! 🙂

Will probably start a log. Like many others I was bought here by my fucked up back, gained weight, got kids et al.

Saw that this forum was still some what active and decided to sign up!

Chief problems with the forum:

Spam accounts.
Too many adverts.
Not enough real accounts / no community atm.

Thanks you so much for all the good ideas and energy, it's been so long.

@doe99 and @numpty, really appreciate your inputs.

We've done a long overdue user pruning and hope to keep the spammers at bay, though it's a never-ending battle.
We also did some tweaks to the ads, hopefully it shows. At the end of the day, the ads are only there to pay for the site hosting.

Since we are on this topic, we have been considering migrating this forum to a different software, the one being used now is a little hard to keep updated. Would anybody care to volunteer to help test?

The main site was migrated to Wordpress a while back but also needs some love. Seems there a few dead links lingering and if anybody has any wordpress theme/design skills that they would like to apply to simplefit.org, we would love to hear more.

Thanks thats good.

I guess the only way to end spammers is to include more authorisation to post? At least at the beginning?

I dont know that much about it all. Tapatalk is pretty cool for forums if you can get on there?

No idea about wordpress!
