I revert to user validation
I lost more than I win : 10% are spammers, 90% are valid users waiting sometimes 3 weeks to login (too busy and SpritesMind is locked at the office)
i'll deal with the spammers like I did before
If I miss one, send me a PM please

During the registration process, is there a way for a user to prove that they're not a robot scammer?
Can you add a custom step that is totally unique to SpritesMind that no generic robot will complete?
Something like: get three pictures of Sega consoles and you have to name them? Or put them in order of their release dates? Or guess Tom Kalinke's birthday?

Do you need more help with moderation? Happy to be of service if you want it.

@dj : there is already a dedicated "capcha" like stuff, home made, so no bot could defeat it.
but it's nothing against real human spammer
@MoD : thanks for the help! i'll see what the phpbb update'll give me. If not enough, you'll be granted moderator

since I moved to php3, 85 people tried to register.
99% if not 100% are spammers....from Russia
phpbb2 was spammed by China
phpbb3 is spammed by Russia
I still don't know how to stop this.
It's like if moving to phpBB3 sent a mail to every russian spammers !
Right now, registration is NOT possible.
The spams you saw these 2 days were from before I locked registration....
sorry for (future) members.
If you want to register, ask to register then send me an email, I won't delete your registration request
