wow much spam


in the last three days a few thousand spam posts and nearly 200 spam accounts joined the forum. that is the most activity i've had on here since 2012. i ended up just restoring a backup of the database from july 2, as nothing had changed since then. now im actually going to have to fix the antispam system.

You should look into getting email verification, you'd see less spambots.

i had that once, but the email server i had set up was very unreliable. im thinking of just having as one of the questions "go to [some other place on the website] scroll to the bottom of the page, copy and paste the random string of characters into the answer box." that would probably stop most of them
