Max here, filling in for Stephen, who I’m sorry to say has suffered a family bereavement (so I’ll be helping out for a few days if there’s any breaking news). We’ve recently suffered a spam attack, resulting in over 4,500 comments waiting for Stephen to approve, 99.999% of them pure rubbish. With his permission, I’ve bulk-deleted all of them.
However, there’s a small chance some legit posts never ended up making it onto the site, so if you’ve made a comment in the last week or so and don’t see it anywhere, then please feel free to re-post it.
UPDATE (3/29): As of today, we’ve added CAPTCHA technology, which will require you to enter a short sequence of numbers and letters after you post in order to verify you’re human. At 80 spam posts an hour, regretably it was something we had to do.:
The issue with the CAPTCHA plugin has been fixed. It has been deactivated for now, but all users must register to comment. This will help reduce the volumes of SPAM comments that btvn receives. Thank you for your patience during this time, and please feel free to use the Contact form if you spot any other errors.
If you attempt to register under a name that you use on the forums and it is already taken, please follow the directions to reset your password. We are in the process of porting the forum users over to the WordPress interface, which will culminate in the entire forum being moved over to this website rather than be hosted on an independent server.
Due to unforseen circumstances (catastrophic technical failure at BTVN HQ), we regret to announce that our planned feature with Tim Estiloz has had to be indefinitely postponed, but we hope to have him back after the ceremony itself. To see a full list of nominees, please click on the link below.

THE ALL-NEW BTVN IS NOW LIVE!
THIS SITE IS NO LONGER FULLY-FUNCTIONING, SO PLEASE HIT THE LINK ABOVE TO GET WHERE YOU NEED TO BE
ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS: email@example.com
SIDE-NOTE: IT HAS COME TO OUR ATTENTION THAT SOMEONE HAS CREATED A GROUP ON YAHOO, TITLED “BTVN”. THIS IS NOT THE REAL BTVN. THE REAL BTVN IS AVAILABLE AT: WWW.BTVN.NET; THE BOARDS AT WWW.BOARDS.BTVN.NET. SORRY FOR ANY CONFUSION.
Hi, I’m Max Preston, and as you might have guessed, that’s my picture over there! Anyway, welcome to the All-New BTVN.net!
My colleague Rob Mignogna has asked me to throw together our new look, and as you might imagine, it’s something of a work-in-progress. The board is now a separate entity, but there’s a big fat link on the front page which will always be available, and can be found at the easy new address of boards.btvn.net
We also have a new “Clips, etc” area, where the other staff and I will post the curios we come across on YouTube, plus any multimedia stuff that might relate to breaking news.
There’s also a new contact form where you can submit any tips, comments or questions you may have, which will be sent to our easy-to-remember new e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally, as you may know, I spend most of my time in the UK these days, and we’re still a man down on staff, something which will be all the more essential to resolve in the months to come. If you’d like to be involved (it’s pretty damn cool!), then our only requirements are that you’re 16 or over and have no potential conflict of interest with any of the local stations – just drop a note in the contact box telling us why you’d like to do it, and we’ll get back to you ASAP.
Thanks for staying with BTVN – now going strong for nearly eight years – and please enjoy our rather lovely new look!
