Stop Forum Spam

Recommended Posts

I've noticed it too Felix.

This is a big problem we are experiencing.

We're busy trying to find a permanent solution for accounts/ users like these.

Thanks for the heads up.

Cheers!

blast them blast them;-))))

stopforumspam.com is a really good tool and very effective. we type the ip-adress and the email into the search engine. These two characters are enough to identfy spam users.

But how do you prevent them from coming back when they are using different IPs and emails each time?

How about a (more sophisticated) captcha for new member applications?

At Rick's request I've configured the forum software so an admin needs to approve a new user. This may stop some of the spammers.

I've also written a little tutorial for the staff on how to really ban the crap out of a user and the IP they come from.

Let's hope this helps a bit.
