Judging from the state of the place this morning, is anyone gonna poke the admins into action? Laughing

The "Why do you want to join this forum" field seems to work on forums I've helped with. There is a small delay for the user waiting for admins to approve the reply, but if implemented, I think it would work well here. You could even allow existing forum members to verify this for admin (say 3 approvals of the message).

On rubiks.com (where I have admin rights, but don't control the board setup), I asked the techies to set up a series of simple questions at signup. Simple things that a bot can't get past.

For here it could be things like "When using a computer, which bit do you normally look at? sound card, monitor or processor."

We use a few of these (I haven't checked since I'm not reregistering in case it throws a wobbler. It can be temperamental) and it works well. Since implementing, the only spam we've had is from people who registered before the new measures came in.

Most of the spam now is from old accounts that were set up in wait before the measures came in. Yesterday, I pruned all accounts with no posts that had no activity since the start of october. There were about 35000 I pruned! Shocked
