    Well Playa, spamarama took over about 3 weeks ago. Moderation has never existed and this is the price. I'm surprised to see anyone poker-centric in here; all posters just gave up.
    Seems a waste to have spent $$$ on an upgrade 3 weeks ago, to just abandon it and let all the Polksa-weeds take-over, but who knows the real reasoning.
    Very strange.....

    Hi guys, I work at IT department, that is looking after PNW. We heard about the SPAM issue on Friday and are now working to have it under control. We should be able to add couple measures within this week and hopefully this will end this spamarama.

    Most of the posters here are unpleasant, so I stopped posting here.

    Also it's full of spam now.

    Of the last 2 weeks 99.92% of posts have been Polska-spamarama and 0.08% have been legitimate. Well jurasj (on your maiden post) you have your work cut out....Good Luck

    Hey guys

    I have taken over at PokerNetwork as the editor so thought I would stop by and say hi.

    I never saw the old forum but I am told that it was a buzzing and vibrant place and probably the best in Australia. I can understand that you may not like the changes to the appearance etc but they are for the better, especially in the back-end unseen parts where the magic happens.

    I want this to be your forum, somewhere that is yours and I just tinker with it. But for that to happen I am going to need your help. I need to know what you want from this forum, what you like, what you dislike etc etc and we can work together to bring it back to its former glory.

    I'll get a stuck post put up where we can discuss everything related to this.

    Changes are happening but they will take time, but please trust me when i say i will be doing everything to bring the shine back to this great forum.

    Matt

    I'm. In a similar situation to the op. I've just checked back in recently to see if there was any melb champs buzz but just found the same spam that has been mentioned. Doesn't seem to be much going on here but would love to see that change though, best of luck.

    retuerning 2 weeks later and have seen slight improvement REGARDING SPAMBOTS CLEANED UP.

    My observations:

    1-spam (already mentioned

    2-display....so much worse than it used to be,, immediate turn off, looks unrecognisable too- i initially thought it was the wriong forum when i first tried

    3-some funny members like joey del luca, good posts.

    4-home/pub games forjm was chock fuill of useful info and juicy gossip. It really really drove the forum. who can forget the tj poker stories and diplomatic immunitys spin on things "ermington stopped poker because carparks were full" lol. alot of fighting from memory between providers made mods delete posts - dipped straight after this.

    5- every now and then there was a great promo or freebie given out.


    2+2 forums are down. if i was the owners up here in this b*tch id try and capitalise on their misfortune. last roll of the dice to kickstart this place again.

    Slightly cynical reply but relevant.
