Forum registration changes

Postby Aaron » Wed Apr 13, 2011 2:18 pm

Hi Everyone,

Due to the number of spambots registering for the forum, the CAPTCHA challenge used in the forum account activation system has been changed. Now, instead of asking you to decode the text in a tortured image (which robots are apparently quite good at), the forum will now ask you to type the answer to one of a list of questions. The list of questions I've defined should, I hope, be quite easy for a real person to answer, but difficult for a software algorithm.

Please address all complaints to aaron@bundysoft.com.

Best regards,
Aaron.

Hi All,

We haven't had any successful spam registrations since I made this change a week ago. However, we have had some spam posted by previously-registered and hitherto dormant accounts. I apologise for the annoyance caused by these spammers, and will endeavour to delete these accounts and their posts as soon as possible.

Best regards,
Aaron.
