Topic: Spam

Hey folks, you may have noticed we've had a bit of spam the last couple of days. Please don't reply to it, because any replies will vanish when the spam is deleted. Feel free to report the spam using the link in every post, or just ignore it and I'll zap it when I can.

I'll end with a plea. If you register an account please post - even if it's just to say 'hello'. It lets me know you're not a spammer-in-waiting.

Re: Spam

I'm temporarily suspending new registrations until we can work out what to do about the spam. The one I've just deleted was particularly graphic. And just as I was about to tuck into a banana...

PunBB doesn't seem to have very good anti-spam measures - there's no way to auto-moderate new users as far as I can see.

Grr argh. Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.

Re: Spam

You can add one of those image verification things.
It's a plug-in. I've seen it done, but when I tried it I couldn't do it myself.


(Think it's called CaptchaBox)

Re: Spam

Thanks for the suggestion - I'm reading up on a whole lot of plugins.

Re: Spam

Good luck man. I run my own site but i use vBulletin so i doubt i could offer you much advice about this system.
