quianquian72 or something like that. It's appearing in nearly every new thread.
yeah, been trying to keep atop of it but it isn't easy (and the cache takes a while to update once i bash he delete all button)
a Captcha into signup? It'd kill the spambots dead, eh?
maybe. but it'd also MASSIVELY piss off the regulars.
would need to be developed and tested properly.
sign-up, rather than sign-in? surely the regulars are already signed-up?
These spam bros are getting on my wick.
where you've like 3/4 really long spam posts in amongst the good music. it's not the end of the world but it seems a shame and i would've thought quite an easily preventable one w/ captchas but idk, i could be wrong and i defer to ur expertise obv.
just need some developer time focussed on it (our developer is working on other projects most of this week - and at £400+ per day, we can't really afford loads of of time). at the moment a lot of time is going into building the core of the site, so that we can have a nice site that doesn't die all the time. bandaging over all these gaping wounds may help in the short-term but for now we're focussing on the long game.
what a good idea
but only for new users, for their first 10 posts.
this shouldn't afflict existing users.
hopefully the captcha won't affect any existing users but the spam is getting rather out of hand, so we have to do something.
the "delete all" also has an issue with the cache of pages not clearing and that should be remedied when the fix goes up too.
