Who is the New Varangian Guard?
The core area and period of interest of the New Varangian Guard is the Byzantine Empire, its allies and enemies, during the 9th to 13th centuries A.D. Members of the Guard attempt to learn about the lifestyle of these peoples by study and reconstruction of the materials and practices of the period.
We aim to make our recreation as realistic as possible without compromising safety, the law, or personal enjoyment. We also endeavor to create and maintain channels of communication amongst members, other recreation groups, educators, government and the business community. In this way we provide opportunities and venues for members to practice, display and teach the skills, arts and crafts that they pursue.

As you can see the website has had a significant backend upgrade. This has been planned for some time, and I have brought this forward after investigating the issue with the gallery. As this is a very significant upgrade, a few things will most likely be broken until I finish fixing them. The gallery has been fixed in this upgrade, the upgrade was necessary to fix this. Once the site functions are confirmed working I will work on restoring the style of the old site. The forums posts should be fully moved over, but let me know if there are any issues. The best way to report this is to email firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a temporary email address until I can get everything 100% smooth. Use my normal contact methods if you know them.

Following an prolonged influx of spam on the forums I have started taking long term steps to combat this. If you have been affected by this I apologise.
When I first started noticing the spam as an issue I started reacting to it as it came, deleting the offending posts. This eventually became ineffective, especially when the spare time I could devote to it became less and less.
This meant that I needed to start taking measures to end it for good. I have started this process by deleting roughly 25,000 users in mass. Of the accounts now left I still need to eliminate what is left of the accounts responsible for spamming. If you have been caught up in this I aplogise, but the raw numbers of spammy users did not allow me to review any of the accounts.
I have now fixed the registration process that was broken, and the site now requires user registration to be approved. My next step will be looking at getting the forum and website software upgraded.
