spammers

Post by FahCore » Wed Jan 26, 2011 1:28 pm

With the board having new spam almost everyday is there any thoughts on how to block it? Maybe have a mod approve new users or the first few posts of a new user. Just a suggestion.

Most boards, I believe you can just have a moderator approve them before allowing posts. That seems to work on most boards with lower traffic.

Preventing the spam is a cat and mouse game. We believe we have it under control again. We'll see how long our solution lasts this time.
