Sorry for the delay but we got too much spam recently

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?

@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
