Anti spam bot on registration page

Post by Cabola » Mon Dec 07, 2009 12:30 pm

You guys should add an anti bot feature on the registration page for the forums to prevent spam bots from joining :P I'm speaking about bots like Linyimpaday pretty obvious that it's a spam bot: http://forum.chanstat.info/search.php?a ... 7&sr=posts

Could be a simple dropdown yes/no select, or a more advanced random array question/answer solution, either way you guys should add one..

*EDIT*
Em this should be moved to the "forum suggestion" forum, I posted it in the wrong place -.-'

Hi,

I was on a bot sweep, and almost removed you :shock: :o

Anyways, If you have any ideas (As in links to places) that would work we will look into them. I do belve we saw something we are thinking about adding, but haven't got around to it yet.

Also, topic moved for you

I know this thread is old, but what if users were required to do something on IRC (like a bot command or similar) in order to complete the registration process?
