28.09.07 New Comments System and the Message Boards
We will be upgrading our comments system for all TMB members within the next two weeks. The new comments system will allow all users to make comments directly on profiles and also allow profile users to edit there own comments page.
In regards to the message boards, due to the large volume of spam and general abuse that this kind of message board is vulnerable to, its relevant to the site has become almost obsolete. We hope that the new comments system will be a far better tool and are considering removing the message board completely when the new comments system is introduced. We invite your feedback and comments.
