Hello all,

I recently took over as webmaster for In an effort to increase activity and encourage posting on this forum, we have changed the settings and lifted the posting approval process, so that new topics and replies to topics no longer need to be approved by an admin. 

So, when you create a new topic or reply to a topic, it should immediately show on the forum. 

In the backend, I’m working to delete all spam accounts so there is no spam posting on this forum. When and if there is a spam post, I’ll try to delete it ASAP. There are hundreds of spam accounts in the backend, so this will take some time to weed them all out. I’ve already deleted a couple hundred.

Also, there were 100-200 user accounts pending. I have gone through all them, and approved all that appeared to be real people, and deleted all pending spam accounts. As of April 30, 2023, there are zero pending user accounts.

Hopefully, this change will encourage more activity on the VKA forum. Now, you can post in ‘real time,’ and not have to wait for an admin to approve.

If anyone has issues with their account, you can reach out to me directly. My email is

You are doing a great job Keith — THANK YOU very much — one thing I would like to offer up is to investigate the possibility and of course the cost to moving us to a faster server — this website is very slow and if the cost is reasonable, I think it could we considered it — Again, Many THANKS
