New user moderation delays

Our migration has concluded and we are now live on a new web host. However, we’ve hit a snag and our forum is currently unable to send emails that would normally allow new users to activate their accounts automatically.

As a result our moderators have to manually cross reference email addresses and usernames with databases such as https://www.stopforumspam.com/ to remove the automated bots from legitimate new account requests which has resulted in mistakes and false bans.

If you are a new user that has been banned please email me at peppermint_admin@pm.me and I’ll follow up with the our forum moderators to approve your account.

Unfortunately, forum spam is just as widely occurring as email spam and we have to be mindful of the new accounts we authorize.

      Hi Pete,
      I am pretty sure it’s possible. Take a look in the forum or ask the question there.

      Very easily. All you need is a formatted USB stick (usually formatted to FAT or vFAT). No partitioning is necessary.

      If you prefer a graphical installer, check out Unetbootin or MultibootUSB, among others.

      If you’re happy to use terminal (command line), look up ‘DD command’.
