I think that everyone noticed high count of spam bots posts in last week. Is there some way how to stop that?

I can make the registration process more difficult, so spam bots cannot register automatically.
But I can't prevent people from registering manually and make those spam-postings manually.

Those messages generally don't stay long in the forum. The "Report post" feature is used by the members to report those posts, so we can delete these postings and deactivate the spammer's account. Sometimes the IP-addresses are banned as well.

Don't know what else we can do :-k

EDIT: I have installed a MOD, which enhances the CAPTCHA image during registration. Now we have to wait & see ...

maybe i'm only bad informed about this, but...
why in the hell "people" is still sending spams around?i think that no one clicks their link or read them...
they're worse than tv spots (in terms of marketing), because they're simpler to avoid...no one cares about spam mails/posts/whatever.
(personally i automatically burn my spam folder in outlook).

There are three spam messages in viewtopic.php?f=32&t=38031&start=30

I don't know where else to report this, and I don't know if kriki checks his PMs, which is why I'm posting here.

What about giving moderator (atleast to delete/block spam posts/profiles) permissions to 1/2 more regular/trustworthy users?

What I feel is spammers are hitting the forum when you and Kriki are offline like your sleep time..

We have now implemented an approval queue for postings of new members. These postings need to be reviewed (and approved) first before they become visible. But this only applies to postings of newly registered users. Spammer registrations that already exists in the users database might post their spam messages, but they will be caught eventually.

You should report these messages using the "Report this post" feature. That's the red "!" icon you find at the bottom-right of each posting.
