    Re: Was there a major HBA update yesterday?

    To elaborate: We have a new admin who has partnered with Jake. So far, the new admin has made some minor updates to the forum software to reduce spam, and there are now ads, but only if you're not logged in. There will probably also be a major update of the forum software to Xenforo, which will be a big improvement, but I don't know the schedule for that. The new admin is also the owner, not just admin, of several other forums, including the Biplane Forum, but Jake still retains ownership of HBA; there are no plans to make HBA a pay site as was done on BPF.

    FWIW, the issue with image attachments appearing only as links appears to be fixed now.

    We have been informed that ads are now being served to non-members. If you're logged in, you should never see them.
