Disabling of new registrations

Postby Ekona » Fri Nov 16, 2012 1:32 pm

Guys, I've disabled new signups for now as we've had a mass influx of spam posts this morning and I've deleted at least 4 that I can think of. One a day I can live with, but this many is doing my head in! :lol: Hope that's okay, I guess we need to look at our captcha settings or other countermeasures.

Good call. I've killed 5 today, I can kill no more.

Right, that's about 15 I've just removed from the DB, basically everyone over the last week barring Polito45. Should do the trick for now.

I'm sure we can drop Polito as well. It's the only way to be sure.

Make a "New users" sub-forum, in which they have to post to prove they're real before being given priveleges to post elsewhere.
Works 60% of the time, ALL the time.

We're 3 minor revisions of phpBB behind as well. Not sure if any new anti-spam stuff has been added (I think it's been tweaked a bit), but that needs sorting probably. I know what a pain in the arse it is... Sorry.

Hey! I'm realistic... quite life-like in fact. ;)
Shit at captchas tho'... and colour blind, so a Color Vision Testing Captcha would have kept me out. :D
