Unfortunately, we can't do anything more than we're already doing. We've been working as fast as we can to delete the posts but some threads (not even FORUMS) have 10+ bot posts 20 minutes ago I cleared out the ReMixing forum and it's already got a ton of new posts. I think this is a losing battle. We need Dave's intervention.

The small forums I was moderating was probably getting 5 or 10 spam posts per day, and that was with me deleting every new registered bot every 3 or 4 days (yes, I actually went through every new registered user with 0 posts and looked to see if they looked like a bot). We had about 20 new bots (and still do) registering for the forums each day.

I got so tired of deleting so much crap I eventually disabled account activation by e-mail. New users have to get an admin to activate their account. I'm happy to report we've been spam free for several weeks.

I'm surprised these forums haven't gotten a lot more spam. The mods must be doing a really good job of keeping on top of it here.

Anyone else has admin powers? If someone who does come online, he should disable registration completly for a while (email validation will not work), and ban the alerady registered bot accounts, or if you have a backup of the forums from 2 days ago, rollback to that date by restoring it (altough this will cause lot of good posts to go)

Dave's the only one with admin powers. When we switch to vBulletin, which should be VERY soon (within a week) all mods can ban, and hopefully Dave will promote Larry to co-administrate the forum for emergency situations.

Nope, djpretzel is the only admin and he's also the only one who can ban people. If mods had ban powers (which some of us will in vBulletin) we could have fixed this in 30 seconds.

I've been messing around with the search function and have added some searches to the top post which will find these topics and replies, fast.

Also, it is far more useful for us if you can link to the profiles, not the posts, as has been said before. That way we can ensure the removal of the spam by each of these names.

How about a phone number? That way, you have to actually talk with a mod to activate the account.

Think of how easy it would be to spot the bots. "So, you want to join the OCR forums, huh"?

"Affirmative."

"Yeah, somehow I think you're a spambot. Account denied."

"Affirmative."

Maybe we need some sorta new account activation method.

I can't really think of any ideas though.

phpBB offers three way.

Right now we're using the second, that implies a validation e-mail.

The third one is stronger, each new account must be hand-activated by an administrator. OLRemix used that system for a while to prevent me from joining. It's not very effective because I registered like 5 alt accounts while they were running that policy... :roll:

Maybe mods could send a PM to new joiners below a certain postcount. If the PM is not answered within a certain time period, then they get purged! :twisted:

Personally, I think adding a code for registration should at least be considered. Some string of random letters and numbers that have to be typed in at the bottom of the page for signing up. Places like the Underdogs site uses this system to prevent bots from downloading files from their site (you have to put in the random sequence before you're allowed to download), and it seems to work pretty well. So why not do something like that here?

I mean, if the registration process stays as it is, the vBulletin OCR will be just as swamped with bots in no time at all.

We have that.

(lol ok I edited it a bit)

edit: now that I think about it, I've seen a better system somewhere else. The pic displays messed up letters that make up a number and you have to type that number.

There should be a picture of a famous video game character like Mario, Zelda, or Sonic, and you have to type in what video game character it is. Don't see how bots could deal with that.
