### Re: NEW SERVER

Sorry for picking ompf2.com... Should have been .org, like the old ompf. This will have to do. :) It looks like I'm still not getting account activation emails sadly; I was hoping this would be fixed now. If you are reading this and waiting for account activation, mail me, and I'll sort it out manua...

You got here via the mass e-mail? I hope everyone received that... It's possible that a few users disabled that feature.

### NEW SERVER

Please change your bookmarks:
ompf2 is now located at ompf2.com . The forum has been copied over, and the old server will die in a few days/weeks.
Please report any issues with the forum to me: bikker.j@gmail.com .

### Re: Latex formula support ?

Arite, thanks for the detailed instructions!

Test:

We can derive de Moivre's formula using Euler's formula:
$\left( \cos{\theta} + i \sin{\theta} \right)^n = \left( e^{i\theta} \right)^n = e^{i (n \theta)} = \cos{(n \theta)} + i \sin{(n \theta)}$

EDIT: Seems to work. Will this do for now?

### Forum updated

Spam increased to ~100 messages a day, so that's good news. Related to this, I deleted 700 fake users. This may include 'lurkers', so if this includes you, p...

### Re: Spam

Maintenance is not done yet. :) I need to upgrade to the latest version to get rid of all the spammers, but a previous attempt failed horribly making the admin panel inaccessible. I need to do a manual backup of the database (without using the build-in backup function), then reinstall, then restore ...

Sorry about that. Board needs some serious maintenance, and I didn't have time. Thesis defense in November.

### Re: Spam

Can I suggest a couple of changes to registration which might reduce spam: Change the CAPTCHA from the default to reCAPTCHA (need to register domain with google, but then should work fine - it's been built into phpBB for a while). Add in a custom profile field for registration - for more info see h...
