    The star system for threads

    ...seems pretty pointless. I propose it is scrapped. It would appear that only the thread author ever uses it, to give their own thread 5 stars.

    I can see the point of rating/valuing individual contributions to a thread, but not the whole thing. If the thread is that useful and informative, it will probably end up as a sticky, after being nominated for this by a forum regular.

    The standard browser will not connect to it, you get a "not secure site" message.

    I've put Firefox on the phone and that will connect.
    But I'm not keen on Firefox for android, it's nowhere near as good...

    I'm working on Firefox for android and have a few addons installed which has speeded things up.

    Might even make it the default if I can get it quicker than the standard browser.

    This one's much older than that, Android 4.1.2 on a Galaxy S3 mini.

    It just seems odd that the standard Android browser can't connect to here because its "not secure" when other browsers have no problem.
    I also have no problem connecting to other fora from the standard Android...

    That's a good offer by moderator2.

    Personally, where I moderate I also have email notification of moderated posts turned off.
    There are just too many, which would swamp your email inbox.

    I do check everyday there by logging into the moderator control panel and looking...

    If people see a message that their post has been sent for moderation then please send me a PM and I will then receive an email notification. I do not receive notifications of moderated posts automatically, and would not want to since many moderated posts really are spam. Remember that the action to...

    I've used and written systems to detect spam, it is possible to make systems user friendly without compromising the security model. Though no system is 100% secure there is a level of tolerance
