Gender & Sexuality forum: now open!

Hey everyone,

You spoke and it was thus: due to popular demand and to celebrate Pride month, we're delighted to launch our new Gender & Sexuality forum!

Why not head over now and take a look around. Make sure you look through the guidelines (and add your own suggestions) and read all about the history of Pride

This is your space - feel free to make it yours and post away!

    SUCCESS is not final, FAILURE is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts

      Heya Aidan,

      Unfortunately there is a lot of it right now. It died down very recently, but it initially spiked when we opened The Mix up to be accessible to other countries. We made a PSA about it here - I'd recommend having a read through. It should answer any questions you have.

      Reporting it is a huge help, so thank you to both of you!

          I think it's spam if it's foreign and has a link, but you've made me think, I dunno anymore...

            Derp, I forgot to link the PSA thread the first time - http://vbulletin.thesite.org/forum/c...-spam-increase

            We'll check any reported posts to make sure they are spam before we delete them. We can check IP addresses and registration details - both of which are usually dead giveaways. In any case, it really helps us that you guys bring them to our attention in the first instance.
