Bots

Post by chipdogg » Wed May 23, 2007 7:59 pm

I don't recall, but when you sign up, do you gotta answer a question or type in anything that you have to read on one of those impossible to read pictures of the fucked up looking letters? I believe these help take car of the bots that keep posting up lame links to porn that don't work.

I'm still working on it. I got rid of them on 2GN somehow and I thought I had everything setup on here the same way but aparently not and I'm still trying to figure out what exactly I have different thats allowing the bots over here :-?

There is a CAPTCHA image thats even harder to read than the standard phpBB CAPTCHA image. A question that asked if you're human or not as well as disabling the website and some other profile fields when registering causing the registration to fail if there is an attempt to fill in those spaces. I know I have something else over on 2GN but I can't remember what :-k

ZR2usa.com (for my zr2 sonoma) has a good idea, you register than before you are activated you have to send a pic of your zr2 to the admin. you could do the same but with neons.

That becomes tedious as a board grows.

I think our newly upgraded anti-spam is really helping things.

True, since the anti-spam thingy and the new mod we didn't get a bot posting AFAIK.
