Changes in forum settings for signatures

Household annoucements, forum rules, and other boring but necessary stuff. Make sure you read the forum rules before you post anywhere on this site!

I've made some changes to settings in what is allowed in user signatures.

For now, no automatic linking to images and flash animations is allowed from user signatures. You can still use simple bbcode and smilies.

The reason is that I've discovered a number of possible spam accounts that use the signature function to hide links to malware sites. This may well have been the cause of the recent malware problems some people have encountered here.

The user database has been cleaned up significantly as well; many user accounts that were inactive for a long time have been removed.
