The only downside, is that it's usually a lot of work for the moderators. Even if they implement a captcha to prevent bot spam.

Well seeing as how there's all this spam that hit the forums, I'm going to go ahead and suggest that you make a "Janitor" usergroup. Basically, people that are tasked to delete bots. Also, that'd be their only power. Delete bots. I'm sure there'd be a lot of people that would love to help you mods out regarding this issue.

Too much damn bots, and they're taking over now -.-
Too much to report. A bot account can have 50 post count easily. We need a new method to stop them.

I think it's the definition of irony when a spam bot posts on this topic, but yeah, if something done other than the mods having a field day banning bots, that would be awesome haha.

Maybe a 10 URL limit per a post until you post 30 times will help if that's possible.

The thread didn't move sections?


I've never had issues with bots nor do I know how the operate.

But perhaps we can add a time limit of of 1-3 hours before they're allowed to post after they register. Than after every post, they'll be limited to a post per few minutes.

I assume the bots role is to make as much spam as possible. If we add a time limit, then they'll be wasting good time on waiting rather than spamming on someone's else's forum.

Also, it's clear that captcha code wont work, especially since bots seems to be able to recognize patterns.

I made the post time limit 1 minute. I will change it to 3. Also, I'm using a questions security thing. I'll see what I can do.
