Re: KCME Website Hosting

Don't worry - I won't ever use GoDaddy. I will check out Orange Geek.

Thanks :)

KCME Website Hosting

G'day MINI Enthusiasts! Your friendly forum host here. I am approaching the end of my current hosting contract and looking to downsize my hosting plan. Fear not! I plan on continuing to host this lovely community unless (or until) one of you all wants to take over hosting duties. I'm currently soli...

Forums Software Update

Hi everyone!

Just to let you know that I will plan on doing an update on the web forums sometime this week. It looks to be a moderately involved process, so the forums will be down for an hour or two while I work on it.

Re: Domain Registration

Well, for 2013 we had 25 unique visitors hit us initially from the .org address.

Re: Domain Registration

I'll look at some stats tomorrow or on the weekend. Since we converted everything over to kcminiclub.com I'm pretty sure all traffic is going that way. I think the main benefit at this point to keeping the original domain is to keep it from getting into the hands of a spammer or someone whose going ...

Happy 10th Anniversary, KCME!

I didn't realize it until this evening, but KCME and this website just turned ten years old! It doesn't even seem like it was that long ago that capsaicinmini started talking on some other MINI website (I honestly don't even remember which one it was!) and decided to get KCME up and running. Our fir...

Re: Sorry, the board attachment quota has been reached.

That was a message indicating that, as a collective, the storage capacity for message attachments on the board had reached its capacity. If you are planning on uploading a large number of photos, i would suggest using a photo sharing site like Flickr which is better suited to handling that sort of a...

KCME User Account Cleanup

Hi Everyone, Just want to get a feeling for your thoughts on this. There are a lot of inactive/never used accounts on this system. What are your thoughts on purging some of these old accounts? There are some that haven't ever logged in after their initial account creation, and some that haven't been...

Hello! Just a short post to let you know that I have updated the forum software to the latest stable release, so please let me know if you spot anything funky. I also set the board to daylight time, so times on here should now look appropriate (if anyone even noticed/cared!). Happy Motoring, Richard

Private Message vs. E-mail

I recently received an inquiry as to tell the difference between a PM (private message) and an E-mail. Since all email originating from this website is from dispatch@kcminiclub.com it is sometimes difficult to tell. I figured I would share that information here as well, in the hopes that it will be ...

Hi everyone,

I zapped the spam bot and deleted its posts - please let me know if there are any residual posts that the phpBB utility missed.

Re: Forum & iPhone browser?

I have seen several articles online about Safari in iOS having the Accept Cookies option flip itself to Never without human intervention. I think in the future, if anyone experiences problem using the forums with an iOS device, checking that cookies are allowed is probably a safe first step. -Rich

FYI - I upgraded the board to the latest release of phpBB yesterday. New releases have been very stable with the 3.x.x series so I don't anticipate any problems but if you think you've spotted a bug, please let me know.

Domain Transfers

I have changed domain registrars from godaddy.com to namecheap.com this evening - I don't expect there to be any service disruption to KCME.

When the process is complete the two KCME domains will be registered through Feb. of 2014 - so hopefully by then I'll have a MINI again >^.^<

You guys and gals are probably the only people who wouldn't think me crazy to post this. But I really miss my MINI. I miss my xenon headlights. I miss my heated seats. I miss my ridiculously loud magnaflow exhaust. I miss the whine of my supercharger. I miss the ginormous speedometer in the middle o...
