Postbot is drunk

Seems to be posting multiple duplicate threads in 'Reviews' and 'News'.

Just FYI :D

Yeah it's not the best :( It keeps getting confused, the mod creator claims it's how some feeders ammend their news which changes the list, and so the Bot just dumps all the news again.

I might take it down TBH. I have to keep deleting the duplicates!

I'm actually reading the feed more here than on the old site :?

Which, I feel, goes to show how much EVO underestimated and/or wasted the forum. On a similar note - and I'll post a bit more about this once I've got more stats built - but this forum is currently getting 600 "sessions" per day (not unique). Bear in mind this site doesn't show on Google, and has nothing to draw random passers-by....

Which to me, goes against what Stuart said that the old forum only had "double digit" visitors - no idea who was feeding him the stats, but I'm guessing they just plucked it out of thin air. I don't see any reason why their figures wouldn't be 5x that.

Plus (not that I'm bitter about it) but their FB/Twitter feeds and website comments sections are hardly bustling with activity and chat. :roll:

I think part of the problem is that the old community was only linked in a tiny link at the bottom of the evo.co.uk site. They didn't exactly promote or develop it at all.

And as per the others, thanks for your continued efforts Matty.
