Ok I'm working on getting these forums set up how I want them (will be taking another look at the weekend)
Have partially solved the issue of people posting for access without first registering by requiring people to log in before they get to see the forums. It's not ideal but does solve the problem.
Still waiting on the majority of the Berrs to move over from the old facebook group, very few people seemed to like facebook hence this forum! If you know people on the Berrs please poke them in this direction.
Currently working on:
Combat System Test.
