I think this forum should be closed as it has been taken over by spammers advertising drugs. several hundred postings in the last 2 days. Not what genuine people on here are wanting

Well, it’s clear that no-one’s moderating it, or the offending messages would have been removed by now. But closing it completely is a bit drastic. Admittedly, it’s a crap forum (I only seem to get about 1 in 5 questions answered), but until Magento provide a manual that’s a bit more in depth it’s the only resource we’ve got. I still find it moderately useful, even if I have to search 300 posts in the hope someone else had a similar problem.

I would actually like to see a proper support forum, staffed daily by people who knew Magento inside out, rather than leaving us all to support each other as best we can (the blind leading the blind?)

better late than never, the spam should reduce now with the introduction today of a captcha validation on posting of messages. Not so sure that support will improve as quickly, but if it doesn’t., Varien will live to regret it, the user community will not quickly forgive being ignored or forgotten about, and the recent 1.4 release is far from pain free.

Time will tell
