Spammers..

Postby hassmaschine » Wed Feb 02, 2011 7:07 pm

Unfortunately I neglected the forum for a bit over the holidays - last time I checked it was mid December. When I came back, there were thousands of spam posts and hundreds of spammers registered. After cleaning up that mess I've altered the user registration settings to make it harder for them to create accounts and impossible for them to be activated.

Spammers should be gone for good - I blocked a bunch of russian/chinese email addresses notorious for spam, increased the password complexity to the maximum allowed by PHPBB, made user athentication manual, and reduced the # of attemps for the CAPTCA to 2 before it locks you out.

10 years ago, this wasn't such a problem..

Nice and clean! Great work, I wouldn't know where to begin with a website.

I need to start posting over here a little more often...

I'll be adding more content to the forum - eventually! I need to finish the mods to the ix registry first.

I think the spammers are gone now - I haven't gotten a fake registration email since the 1st. :D
