    Default The constant stream of spammers- maybe add a captcha for registration?

    I feel like I report at least 1-2 a day that look like bots that just copy and paste bits from a thread and add those .gif links. I just checked and there is no captchas or anything to prove you are human to register- seems simple enough to add right?

    i too report 1-2 each day.. i think compared to other forums it's ok, but a captcha at the registration would be quite simple to implement..

    Update: This issue is under discussion in the batcave. Most likely we will be adding a captcha type registration system.

    Ironically the previous two posts were spam. Luckily, jojo and myself double tapped them

    There's plenty of captcha libaries to break existing captcha systems.

    Instead, do what I did over at the proton forum long time ago when we were flooded with spammers. I just added a simple additional question as part of registration such as: What is 2 + 2. That stopped the auto-registration. Won't stop hired guns as spammers, active moderation is the only way to get rid of those.

    You are assuming that most tech tools members can count past 3 lol

    Yep. Or if nothing else, type this word backwards: cat. That's what I did over at the Proton forums. I've seen actually forums where to enter it, let's say a classic vinyl forum, you have to answer a question such as What Beatles LP has Paperback Writer? It's a trick question as it was released on a single between Rubber Soul and Revolver so the answer check requires moderation but I was impressed by such a qualifier.
