    Having a https for starters would help. It's easy to set up too.

    I'm more concerned that they get views tbh

      It would save on bandwidth too. While I get that people wanna try to crawl up the Google ladder, in essence you cannot because it ranks things based on your usage. Since this is the only Roosters forum (aside from my one which is more a backup forum + moderation-free zone) it will be pretty easy for fans to find it.

      FWIW my forum has zero spam. Iíd say the secret is:
      - Use https
      - Keep your forum software up to date
      - Dont bother with Google ads (there is no profit from them other than maybe 10c a month, they increase spam and they reduce the usability of the forum)

            It's not just me, the other mods do a great job here too.

            We use to have an HTTPS. I'll be bringing this back shortly.

            This simply, atleast for thechookpen isn't true. The ads significantly reduce the cost to continue to run the website. If they were making 10c a month, I certainly wouldn't persist with them.

            Anyway, I've just made a few substantial changes to a few things, including the signup process and I'll be doing a post and announcement about that shortly.
