    LOS, calm down a bit, I know it is really annoying, but put a post in a normal way. This actually looks like spam. The admins are trying a lot of things on the forum to keep spammers away.

    I feel your pain lastonestanding, they really are annoying. I've heard that's is not actually people but a computer program, which makes it even more annoying, cuz the spammer isn't even doing the work! Gah! I like David's idea, maybe not an IQ test but one that requires abstract thinking.

    yes that would work... a test to see if the new user is a computer or human...
    like a common sense question.
    if a girl says hi would you
    a) say hi back
    b)kick her
    c)run away

    0_o spam is increasing lately, I have been clicking the report icon massively, although 50% of them (atleast) are already reported

    I hate spam with a passion ...

    Don't people have lives anymore ? I was on a previous forum similar to Gimper and it was full of spammers ... In the end the forum had to be closed due to the amount of spammage on it ...
    I hope that doesn't happen to Gimper ...

    well, it is not the mods mistake that there is more spam, they are just cleaning it up when it is reported. They cant do anything about the posting, the admins could make some sort of 5 questions, but I wonder if it would help.

    I've been thinking of activating recaptcha for all members. I think the spammers are just bypassing the recaptcha only in the registration (writing them manually), but once the spam user is registered they can just continue spamming automatically, so my guess is that the problem lies after the registration. Most of the spam posts are practically the same structure and offers blah blah so it's the work of maybe a maximum of 4 person.. or maybe just one *which is my best guess*

    I'm already working on adding akismet but it will take a while since I rarely do any modifications to the phpBB (as in creating my own mods etc etc). Actually I do have some things up my sleeve but it will take a while to put them in motion, so for now please bear with the image verification for all members when posting.
