Spambots and New Memberships

Darknight:
I am not suggesting we get rid of Midaski's Maze, but rather we (if necessary) add an additional level of protection. So, if someone gets past Midaski's Maze of having a good username which is not ciallis4cheep etc, answering the question correctly, and is STILL a bot they cannot mess up the rest of the forum.

Isolating it to just one board, still makes it viewable. I think the goal is to elliminate it, so everyone coming here doesn't have to see it, including the young 'uns.

I was about to say that we could make the intro board mod only, but then I realized the stupidity of that idea.

This is also exactly what I did.

Midaski:
Well I seem to have cured the spambots.

5 hours on from the 'new' questions and not a single "new" member awaiting approval.

The worry now is it may have discouraged a prospective member.   That is difficult to know - we probably average a couple of real people a day.
Time will tell.

Thanks guys!

I can understand why porn on here is troubling Finlay, but what's the EF....?
