Please Keep an Eye Out for Spammers...

Postby Max » Mon Jul 19, 2010 1:34 am

Since going back to the "admin confirm" registration process (no choice, last board upgrade overrides our "create account" mod we had) we've had a lot of sign-ups that may not be legit. We won't know until they post.

I have just activated a whole page of "people". Surely a few of them are spambots so if you see them posting garbage, please report it in this announcement so I can delete them. [-X

Also, I added a "Silly Question" to the profiles. It's required at new sign-up (or when you modify your profile). Maybe this will help to combat the bots.
