New anti-spam measures installed

Post by Sobuno » Tue Aug 07, 2007 9:45 am

This morning I installed (another) modification for the forums, which hopefully should be able to cut down on the spam we're seeing. This modification asks you a question during registration. If you don't answer the question correct, you can't register. The question should hopefully be easy enough for everyone to answer, but if you're having troubles registering, please contact either Slyvampy, Tyfo or I.

We've also recently put Zimoon in the moderation chair for active duty in the fight against spam

Other than that, when phpBB 3 goes live, we will upgrade the board to the new version

I think they'll expect a badger. Have you thought about maybe a hedgehog?

Nobody expects the Spani...er, well..yea...maybe youre right.

since im not much into hedgehogs...how about a duckbilled platapus? who would expect a wooden duckbilled platapus to be such a threat.

But how would you build it? I mean mamilian egg layer? the physics of creating the it out of wood is just staggering.

Perhaps we could contract a rogue office building to help.

Looks like those spammers have shifted their awake time out of my time zone, did they get scared realizing an old viking would hunt hunt them down? :D

Maybe you should just try and build a bridge out of it...
