Well, not to dimenish your enthusiam but forum extensions are not high on the list. Remember, the main point of the book is still learning good application development and design and how to put it to work. We don't feel like extending and improving the forums adds a great deal in that respect. So while that might make the forums themselves better, it's not as important as say, showing what the role of LINQ in the site might be, or more Ajax, or captcha.

jminatel - Quite understandable.

Will the new version of TBH be a total revamp, in the way 2.0 appears to be a remake from V1? Or will the overhaul be less of a shock this time?

I'm definitely interested in LINQ and AJAX in tbh, though :) Perhaps also some Silverlight stuff? (for, oh, say, the articles? :D)

Cheers,

Peter

Just as ASP.NET 3.5 really builds on 2.0, TBH for 3.5 will build on the existing version. For 2.0 it completely made sense to start over with something different from ThePhile because 1.x to 2.0 itself was so different.

Silverlight: we've got something else special on tap there. I'm not going to divulge that in public yet though. :)

jminatel!
It's really a good choice from wrox!
I don't know about others books but problem-design-solution V1 and V2 are on the top here on this forum!
So it's a good bet from wrox.

In my opinion, I don't go benefit very of this book, because I almost concluding my forum with forumpoll, show new and old messages, privatemessages, stickys, announcments, statistics, PhotoAlbumGalerry for each user, interviews orderer by authors and subject, and so on...

But I'll be lying if I say that I am not curious to see in this book what you did and compare with what I forced to did in version 1 and 2!

Me, Jimi and others are waiting for a free copy of this book! ;)
Just kidding!

wait that this book has left briefly

of Course!!

It's certainly a great honor for all if we could do some proof-read!

I'll spend next month(at least) to improve TBH... So it's not so bad idea to change priority!

We don't have the Marco development skills but we have a lot forums consuming and necessity! :)

the proposal is made!

A quick fix for TBH demo site might be to just disable registration for new users. The sample user is adequate for demo use.

quote:Marco's actually had to take that demo site completely offline because of robots creating fake accounts. It overloaded the database.
I'm betting these are anonymous accounts created as a side-effect on Marco's choice to let non-logged-in users save profile information, such as the current theme. Robots end up creating anonymous accounts by virtue of the fact that they're requesting pages and they're not logged in.

I posted a query here to do maintenance on the DB to remove the anonymous accounts that haven't been used in the last xx days. I run that on my site monthly.

Eric, i tokk a copy of that and amended it slightly. here's what i use:

CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[tbh_Housekeeping]
AS
SET NOCOUNT ON

/* delete anything greater than one day old for anonymous users */
/* then shrink it in sql express manager */
delete from aspnet_profile
where userid in
 (select userid from aspnet_users
  where isanonymous = 1
    and datediff(dd, LastActivityDate, getdate()) > 1)

delete from aspnet_users
where isanonymous = 1
  and datediff(dd, LastActivityDate, getdate()) > 1

delete from aspnet_WebEvent_Events
