DO SOMETHING AGAINST THE SPAMBOTS!

Postby Elbart » Sun Sep 08, 2013 5:03 pm

Disable registration or something like that.
Development of Everything is apparently dead again anyway, and reported bugs won't be fixed, so there's really no point in allowing new users anyway. Especially now that all new users are only spambots.

Spammers are deleted. Flag posts and I will keep checking the flagged list.

Is there no captcha? I guess it doesn't matter as much right now since void is on hiatus again, but it makes the project look totally dead when a forum is so utterly dominated by spambots.

Has Void gone to Mars? Why this huge disconnect? It does not bother a person much to inform that the devolopment will resume after x days.Or does he revel in such acts of disappearences....

I see someone blocked an ability to use PM.

Probably it's because of SPAM bots abusing it ..

Maybe just add a captcha for registration and require users to confirm their accounts via e-mail upon registration?

PM sometimes is helpful :)

PMs have been blocked due to spam and abuse.

PhpBB captchas have been cracked.
However, the Q & A anti-bot method is working quite well at the moment.
