Or we have a bunch of admins, but few who are active. Either way, same net result.

I am betting that we are running a very old version of this Board software which would explain no ability to upload pictures, and no TLS.

If the forum software is antiquated, it's also possible that the underlying web server tops out at support for SSL 3.0 and can't do TLS (or a current version of TLS). That pretty much makes the possibility of TLS for the forum a moot point, but I'm speculating on that one. It also means that upgrading the forum software may be a no-go until the HTTP server also gets an upgrade, but, again, that's more speculation on my behalf.

I tried to convince myself that there was very little KK material ever posted, because technology wise the KK has jumped the shark further away from where the standard guy can really work on / upgrade the mechanics of the rig, but I find this hard to believe since there are several well visited Wrangler forums out there that cater to the latest models, and get plenty of daily traffic.

I hear you. Came to a similar conclusion re: the KJ a while back, but there does seem to be more activity on that side than on the KK side. *shrug*

So in the end I have no clear idea what can be done to breathe more life into this place. :(

Or if there's any real intention of keeping it alive much longer. It seems like it's being left to wither on the vine in a lot of ways.

Can someone please look into the spam reports? It's starting to become problematic again. Thanks.

Problematic is understating the problem. The spammers have taken over.

Yeah... It's now at the point where a good chunk of the forums are essentially unusable due to the volume of spam they're receiving.

Hate to say it, but the amount of frustration this is causing has me thinking that it may be time to move on to another forum. That's not something I really want to do and I certainly appreciate all of the help I've received here over the past couple of years, but wading through all of the spam just to catch up on legitimate posts isn't where I want to invest my time or effort.
