    As many of you are already aware, we have had some issues recently with undesirables using the forum software inappropriately, and in some cases this has resulted in some of our valued GC members being unable to access the forum.

    The Admin Team take the security of the site, and therefore your data very seriously indeed, and we take great pride in ensuring that all members have access to the forum in a manner that is as easy and trouble-free as possible.

    Over the past few weeks, we have been investigating the source of some of these issues, and in doing so we have discovered what we consider to be a significant security risk from the Tapatalk platform; as a result of this, we have taken the decision to suspend the Tapatalk plug-in with immediate effect.

    We do not currently know when, or even if, this situation will be resolved, but we will of course update you all accordingly.

    This is not a decision that we have taken lightly, and there has been considerable discussion, investigation and evidence gathering to allow us to make as informed a decision as possible; we trust that you will understand that we have made this decision to ensure that GC remains a safe and secure site for all.

    If you use Tapatalk to access the forum, you will no longer be able to do so. You can still access GC on your phone/tablet by using a suitable web browser (Chrome, Firefox etc), and the good news is that the Xenforo software that the forum runs is highly optimised for mobile devices meaning that it resizes itself to best fit your screen whilst keeping data use to a minimum.

    The Admin Team remain on hand to help, so should you have any questions or problems please get in touch with us either by posting on this thread, by PM or by email, and we will respond as soon as we humanly can. Please bear in mind that we are still beavering away in the background to resolve some of the other issues that this situation has caused, so responses may not be immediate.

    Thank you all for your patience, and your ongoing support.

              :yay: :yay: Bravo to all the A Team and a :star:
              I know (and appreciate) how hard you all work, beavering away in the background, and on the open forums, to keep things running smoothly and as pain free as possible. All voluntarily too! :thumbsup:

              So, just for the A Team ...

                          Well, I always knew Our Mandy was a bit Laa-Laa and FC was known for his Tinky Winky; it comes as no surprise that Zigs spends much of his time on the Po but ...
