I haven't logged on in forever. Glad to see the site up and going still. I plan to keep returning more often now that I'm back in the game of Malibu's on a completely serious level.

Just sent out a mass email announcing the site is still alive, and of course a @$% ton of those e-mails are bouncing back. welp, it sounded like a good idea at the time. hopefully this isn't a bad thing. I thought e-mail addresses were like luggage, you keep that junk forever. lol.

WOW whata flashback! THANKS for the invite and heads up! I've been outta the gbody game for long time, I sold my last one back in 05, I have looked at some wagons over the years but nothin panned out.

I had a stroke in 2017 that's taken me out of the mechanicin game pretty much totally and my Dad died in 2012 and I inherited my 72 Chevelle SS Convertible back, so it takes up my garage space yearly as it don't see anything but sunny weather.
I really do appreciate the email and will try to stop in once in a while to see whats up, TAKE CARE ALL!

Hi There,
I'm definitely glad to see some new interest in Malibu Racing! I had a lot of fun, learned quite a bit and got some great deals on parts hanging out on here over the years, I've been popping in from time to time to see if anything was going on and it just made me sad to see there wasn't hardly any action at all, hopefully we can get it back on track! Catch You All Later! KillerDave

I reconfigured things to use the "i am not a robot" challenge for registration, so hopefully this means we can get REAL PEOPLE signing up instead of and endless stream of spambots. Moderators, if you see this, try to keep an eye on things, I'll be doing the same. If it works, great, if not I'll just turn registration back off again.... *fingers crossed*

Edit: And I'm enabling the "stopforumspam" extension here same as on the rest of my sites. That should be another layer on top of it....

OK. I'm going to take the step of outright DELETING all the users who signed up and either didn't verify their accounts.... or NEVER posted and HAVE NOT been to the site in 6 months. So if you never posted, and haven't visited the site in six months, I apologize but your account needs to go. For one it will get rid of a lot of the spammer sleeper accounts, and two it frees up usernames for those who actually want to use them. When I get this board switched to XF it shouldn't be as big a deal.... So. Stand by.

I also removed a few of the user fields that are most popular with spammers, like the "website" (obviously) and the ICQ/AIM fields since neither of those exist any more. I will be removing the member list page when I remember how to do that on phpBB (lol) bc that's just a way for spammers to mine data and spam you in PMs.

Yeah so I guess I can't delete users and the ability to view the memberlist is lumped in with other things that are actually useful. :roll:

....stay tuned I guess..
