The bots!

Postby Wildfire » Sun Jun 03, 2007 6:50 pm

Damn bots already took over the Plan of Attack forums, now they want Gneu too!

I suggest banning all *@*.info email addresses from registering to the forum. I can't think of any major email providers that use a .info domain, but one thing I have noticed is that 90% of these spambots do use a .info email address.

Banhammar time!

You could try what the guys over at the Irrlicht site did, they basically dedicated a single section of the forum to bots and instructed all the users not to post in it, so what would happen is that all the bots would post in the section and would get banned on monthly/weekly basis.

Someone showed me this text confirmation mod for PHPBB.

I haven't tried it myself but the person who suggested it to me said it worked pretty well.
