No you're safe Ian, I won't be doing any moderating except spammers. I'm just helping out on the backend.

Who was it who designed a new header image to replace the missing pubes? Jamie wasn't it? If someone can find it and Jill & Tim like it I could add that.

If anyone has any vBulletin related suggestions for changes fire away. Jill still has the final say though so anything previously denied by Jill will still be denied.

Yes, itís a professional board associated with a rock band. We canít steal stuff unless itís from foofighters.com so unless itís original artwork or pictures by the actual photog, no go.

Default Re: New Admin

I have just made a change that affects the registration process. Now whenever a new user signs up to prove they are human they must answer a basic FF question - they must know Dave's surname. This is obviously very simple but if they don't know or can't google it, they won't be able to register. This setup prevents spambots signing up on my forum (As a spambot should be stumped), we will trial this method to see how successful it is here.

Because of this change if you update your profile in the future you will also have to fill in this box to make any other changes (Your location, msn name etc). This will be a one time thing, once you have filled in the box you won't have to do so again unless for some reason you delete the answer.

Who is this 'Simon' bloke...? Is he new around these parts....? I remember a guy from way back who was affectionately known as Studmore, Studley, Salmon Kilmore and others but it seems he has put on a shirt & tie, bought himself a briefcase and gone all sensible on us.

Boo you, but on the other hand, good news mate, well done.

btw, my dog is getting married on Sunday and I love daves hair, could you get him to sing 'Everlast' at the wedding before the dog's bride gets put down because of a debilitating illness...?

Yes i'm a tie wearing vBulletin nerd now.

As for your request sir what I can do for you is suggest a retail outlet near you that sells Dave Grohl imitation wigs, you can then get your dog to wear this and he can belt out Everlast himself. I'm sure your dogs bride will appreciate this more than if Mr Grohl turned up.

You can change a man's appearance, give him 'admin' status and change his name but underneath it all the studley rages on - he's a goddam sexual tyrannosaurus.
