Yo Marty, you get that Ch 13 video downloaded? They're giving me one last chance to buy it and I'd like a copy.

We've been getting an unusual number of spambots registering here since the first of the year. I changed the settings in the admin area to require that any new members have to be activated by the admin. I'll try to keep an eye on the gmail account, where the new user emails are going.

I'm thinking that this may be a phpBB 3.0.8 issue because NEFA just upgraded and they're getting an increase n this activity as well.

Great idea from Marty to revise the registration process to include a Q&A step. No spam accounts in like 3-4 days.

Brilliant !!!! Been about 3 weeks with no spambots trying to register here.
On the other hand, the NEFA board had like 20 in the same time period. Been quiet over there the past couple days........


I added "Ranks" to the board.

Holw cow !!! I figured that some newbys might not know the answer to the registration question so I switched the question to "Are you human" last night............... 11 spammers were able to defeat that question !!!!

Needless to say the question has been changed back...... live & learn.

What if somewhere on the registration page you have the answer? Maybe between fill in lines?
