Hi all,

Sorry loads of threads are suddenly jumping to the top with no extra replies. Somebody (a fecking spambot) has been posting to threads today, and I've been deleting his comments (an ad for his website, selling services)

Fecking spambots are getting on my wick. We need a Capcha system, verified email, etc.

I shall continue deleting this crap.

Yeah I was wondering about the odd thread-jumping going on.

A captcha system would solve a lot of problems...

A captcha system would solve a lot of problems...

And maybe create new ones... I've had to enter a few where it was literally guess work. Like an "lo" or something was there, and it could have been a "b" because of the near indecipherable way they're made.

I hate captcha where you don't understand the letters, its just annoying, can't you choose the way the way the letters or symbols are distorted?

Nik, did you get the mail i sent yesterday? I did some updates to the moderating thingy. I'll be making further improvements to it this week, and a captcha system is one of them.

Davy, I read that email last night, but I was half asleep. I did notice that you had changed the interface. I can't thank you enough for fixing the banning issue (and the new improvements). It will make a huge improvement to getting rid of the spam that we occasionally get.

Thanks for still working on this old place! :)

Ditto I really do love it here, its the only forum I like. I've joined loads, I last a week normally before I'm bored!
The only time I've gone a week NOT looking here is when I've had my ops.

Do you get tons of spam accounts? Only registering but never posting?

We get tons of each on the red solstic forum, and it's a small forum. We've got a simple captcha, a distorted to hell captcha, math problems, worded questions... nothing really helped.

I have no idea if those are even bots, and we have no way of fighting them other then moderating...
