Deleting posts now? Yeah, I'm done here. Maybe just ban the cunts ruining the forum eh?
Max, I made a big thing saying that I was going to be deleting all forum drama posts from that thread. It was a clear post saying that's what I was doing, well before you commented. Don't make it more than it is.

@Jay I got redirected to this message when trying to come here;

"Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead

Firefox detected an issue and did not continue to www.checkhookboxing.com. The website is either misconfigured or your computer clock is set to the wrong time.

It’s likely the website’s certificate is expired, which prevents Firefox from connecting securely. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details.

What can you do about it?

Your computer clock is set to 31/03/2019. Make sure your computer is set to the correct date, time, and time zone in your system settings, and then refresh www.checkhookboxing.com.

If your clock is already set to the right time, the website is likely misconfigured, and there is nothing you can do to resolve the issue. You can notify the website’s administrator about the problem."

I assume it's something to do with the clocks going forward last night? So no issue on your end?

So basically it's partly due to the clocks, partly due to certificate expiring today. :lol: At least as far as I can tell. For us, the cert has expired, but the server is in America, and over there, it's not expired yet. So we need to wait for it to expire where the server is located so I can renew. Awkward, but unless the hosting provider responds with a better fix, I can't do much but wait until tomorrow probably and fix then.

Sorry about this, awkward timing.

@dkos A thing I just thought about doing if we ever get a fucking donate button. How about doing like a competition with something like a $50 or $20 Amazon giftcard for like the most active poster on the WBF (non-spam) after a year or something? You can announce it on Twitter too. Just shooting out ideas. I mean something small as a way to get more activity, maybe. Worst thing about it is I think it'll bring out spammers.

We can also have a competition using the MS paint bullshit thread that someone made. Funniest MS paint pictures gets some crappy $20 Amazon giftcard or some shit. Just a few thoughts to get this place more activity.

I think doing competitions or something and winning some pity money would be pretty cool. This way you can make announcements on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, whatever the fuck you post and entice new people to join.

It is something I'm already considering. I'd have to see how the ad revenue goes before committing to anything like prizes, but it is something I want to do :good

I think rewarding a 'Poster of the Month' could be fun... :yep

I wouldn’t mind donating to some shit like that. This place keeps me entertained when I’m bored.

I wouldn't mind something frequent if it keeps up posters, but I think month might bankrupt this place (depending on how popular that donate button/ad revenue starts coming in). Unless the prizes are something cheap like a forum badge or name being highlighted in gold or something.

We have to do something with MS paint thread, though. It was fucking brilliant.

I'm sure if we tag people on those pictures on Twitter it might have said famous boxer retweet, which will give us some free advertising!

Anyways, don't mind me if I'm repeating ideas you already have. I'm just getting stuff off my chest, good or bad.

I remember some of those MS paint pics back in the day were fucking hilarious.

I did sort of reintroduce the MS paint thing in the Brit forum (although I didn't do a 2018 version because, well, it was a bit quiet on here at the time):
