Spambots | General Discussion | Forum
Apologies for the spambots which seem to be invading the forum and trying to sell dvds!
We had quite a heavy spam attack a few months ago, and therefore restricted posting to members only. This seemed to solve the problem for a while, but it seems they have found a way around the sign up process. Deleting the accounts is futile as each account seems to post 2 or 3 things and then not post anything again.
Chris is aware and is trying find a solution.
For now i try and delete the threads asap, and have managed to get most of them before anyone else views the topic. Unfortunately while i check on the forum daily, i might not be online at a good time to catch them quickly.
Anyway, sorry again, but hopefully it'll be resolved soon.

Had similar problems I was co-admin on called Mangaforums that has sense gone defunct when the server owner shut it down. Those image capture codes don't work as well as they used to. We implemented a math question using numbers and letters to solve it. Like "if 2 plus nine minus x equals 9, what is x?" The mix of letters and numbers throws them for a loop.
