Spambots...

Postby yank555 » 04 Jun 2013, 19:29

Hi,

Well, I've been getting more and more busy getting rid of those damn spambots :(

I've now activated reCaptcha (though not safe enough), plus I've added a phpbb MOD that allows for double activation, so email validation is now required first, once validated I have to manually activate the accounts.

This should keep spambot noise down, but I expect there are a few sleepers amonst the users...

Hopefully we will have a quiter experience from now on ;)

OK, Spambot countermeasures phase II, let's see if this now helps, added a pretty nasty anti-spambot MOD to the forum, in a few minutes already a full page in the logs of denying registrations...

Hi,

As it looks, new AntiSpamBot MOD seems to be working flawlessly !

User registration has been switched to "verify email only", so as soon as you verify your Email, your account will be active, no manual activation required anymore.
