The new forum only recognizes me half the time. When I sign in, half of it is in Chinese. Not helpful.

A bit of a do here!

I too had problems logging into the new site and then all of a sudden it accepted my login and password.

Also, I found that if you click on the relevant Digital Republic, Ceremeny Forum etc forum on the left of the page after you have logged in as normal (not the banner one across the top) you get all the old threads etc there.

Yeah, me to disappointed in the two not really linking well but at least the spammers have gone. I'm sure the Mods will find a way to resolve the indifferences here eventually so more than happy to flit between the two.

Its kinda ironic that the New Order forum has split into two fractions.

After an initial burst of effort, it's all descended into a bit of a shambles really. It's possibly even worse than before because now the userbase is now split between two bloody forums and the new "spam-proof" one was covered in spam itself a week ago.

The whole project shouldn't really have been started if there was no will to complete it. Ironically, New Order are in the middle of their busiest year in forever really, just completed a big (for them) UK tour and this place is completely dysfunctional. Existing fans aren't sure which forum to use and newer fans wanting to register must wonder what the fcuk is going on.

Oh well, business as usual then.

No Im not making it up, thank you.

if i click on "FORUMS" along the top bar, it takes me to the new forum.

I could only post by clicking on one of the latest threads listed on the home page.

But somebody kindly suggested a work around. CLick on the forums in the left margin.

spammers will get on any forum sadly. i dont think setting up a new forum will make the slightest difference.


Plenty of forums operate spam-free. The reason NOOL is so badly affected at the moment is because it operates an archaic registration process which is easy to exploit. The new forum's signup procedure is not strong enough either because (as far as I can see) it's not that much more secure than this old one right now.

Adding more mods is not the solution besides who can really be arsed mopping up passport spam all day long? I know I couldn't. The offending "members" producing the garbage need their accounts to be deactivated and the registration process beefed up with extra security.

The logical suggestion would be add an easy New Order related question to the validation process as well as making moderators approve accounts before anyone's allowed to post for the first time. They use account approval on JD Central and the Doves forum so why we can't do it on here is a mystery. It would not only take care of the spam bots but also some of the nastier trolls NOOL has seen over the years.


Well at least there is a captcha, so machines will have a harder time. But there is also the moderation feature that I didn't enable, which requires mod to validate messages (I assume we can do this only to new users)

Can't do miracles, but in terms of security it's an upgrade, and it is a HUGE upgrade in easing the job of the moderators.

Major reason that was a problem is the lack of power of moderators to ban/suspend users. Althugh the last attack couldn't have been prevented by anything other than something preventing you to post more than 1 message every x minutes, I believe the new forums have that.


Listen to NewOrderOnline Radio and soon to New Order Community Radio.

I did respond to your comment on this previously - though maybe you couldn't see it. Instead of clicking forums (which does indeed bring you to the new ones) you type in this web address for full access to the old forums:
http://www.neworderonline.com/Forums.
Nic did also explain this previously.
