New spammer countermeasure

Post by KanedaFr » Sun Nov 05, 2017 8:11 am

Hi there,

To fight again the 10 spammers/day, i installed a new module to fight them.
Let me know if you notice any problem or if people contact you because they can't register.

(hint : you could use the contact page on gendev.spritesmind.net if you need to)

It's been a month now and I think it works.

So I reenabled easy registration, to avoid the problems met by some many (real) people trying to register.
Sorry for that, but I had to do this to keep SpritesMind safe.

From now, please contact a moderator if a spammer get into!

Well, it's clearly not working now, already spotted two (three?) spam posts recently =/
Sik is pronounced as "seek", not as "sick".

A couple will always slip through the net whatever the countermeasure, let's see if the frequency increases. Keep reporting them, I check daily for problems.

Due to recent events :
- registration is desactivated
- some accounts were deleted (don't call me a dictator for this, please! I was trying to do my best!)
- accounts with 0 posts will be deleted soon (let me know here if you don't want, it will be your first post and will avoid the purge)

Thanks to Sik, BigEvil & Mum for letting me know

Seems I got cleaned up on that purge, fortunately I was able to join now.
So, Hello World! :) Greetings from Spain
