As a test, I tried to respond directly to this thread...
Good day, kind sirs and madams!

We're making this announcement to... uhm, announce, I guess... that we will be upgrading the MCF's software to the latest version of SMF. We're going from 2.0.9 to 2.0.15, or something like that. This change will be mostly transparent.

Also, we will be moving to a better (i.e., complete) implementation of HTTPS, which among other things should get rid of the warning icons. It should also allow the spoiler tags to work without disabling protection. This may cause compatibility issues with links to non-HTTPS content, but as HTTPS is the wave of the future, we'll just have to cross all of those bridges as we come to them.

This will all be happening on Tuesday, May 22nd, 2018, at 7:00 AM, PDT. During this time, access to the MCF may be spotty, and any posts you make while we are switching things over may vanish. Since we're moving to a new host machine, DNS settings must be changed, and that can take a few minutes to a few hours to filter through all of the various and sundry Internets. (It normally doesn't take very long.)

And thus, the announcement comes to a close. Thanks for your time and attention. If you have any questions, feel free to post them in the Feedback forum, because I'm pretty sure only Mods and Admins can post here.

THEANTJACK  Piracy.   9/28/2017    Probably never 

THEANTJACK has been a well-known pirate of MC material since... well, since ever. However, that's been allowed to slide since he didn't directly use his Forum presence here for that. Then, he started linking to pirated material via his signature... and, well, that's very much not allowed here.

Hello, wanted to give you a heads up that at least one more email providers isn't working. I tried to sign-up several days ago with mailfence_com, but never got a confirmation-mail (yes, I checked my spam). Now I used tutanota_com, worked like a charm. oldfartyjohn

I believe that's a symptom of us fixing the problem.

I hadn't noticed, but a few weeks ago, I stopped getting the notifications... and today, I got a bunch, too. Neat.

Joe, just a heads up fyi. Tonight, when I got home, a whole pile of personal messages from here in my Hotmail email box, going back some period in time, but all timed as sent at 10.40 BST this morning. Might be worth checking issue out again?

Hi there. I'm Joe, your unfriendly curmudgeonly Admin. How's it going? Wait: don't answer that; this isn't a two-way conversation.

Thanks to the frustrations of a few of our members, we have figured out that Hotmail is zapping all of our emails in order to prevent Hotmail users from becoming infected with computer macro virus Trojan horse rootkit worms.

By "our emails," I am speaking of any email sent by the SMF software: personal message and other alerts, password reset links, account activation links, etc. Because the From address (which is my email address) doesn't match the rest of the header, the email looks fishy, and while providers like Gmail are content to dump the email in the Trash or Junk or Spam folders, Hotmail goes that extra mile. For you.

So... for people who want to join but are on Hotmail: until we get this fixed, which we are trying to do, you might want to sign up using a Gmail account. Current members who have Hotmail: we figured out why you haven't been getting emails, and we're working on it, but again, if you really need emails, switch to a provider who isn't Hotmail.

Thanks, folks.
The rise of services like KDP and Patreon have been great for the community; they've allowed people for whom writing erotic fiction was just a hobby to turn it into, at least, a paying hobby. As these services have become more popular, and more authors are starting to self-publish (and thus self-market), it's time to expand and clarify our rules about what kind of solicitation goes where.

First, it's always fine to link to your self-published titles, website, or Patreon account from your signature line, so long as it is not overwhelming your posts (the administration here reserves the right to ask that overwhelming or garish signatures be edited, shrunk, or removed, just as we've always done with avatars).

On Advertising in the Forum...

With the exception noted below, we ask that you do not directly solicit donations or market in the body of posts. This includes links to your website or Patreon account, requests for donations, or other solicitations to selling sites.

This doesn't apply to the Products and Services Board.

It's fine to market to your heart's content on the Products and Services board, subject to the rules there. Keep it within reason, though, as our users are just as subject to feeling annoyed by spam as anyone.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask (in the Feedback thread, that is). Unless that question is "Is this because of ____'s post that one time?", because don't.
