Spambots in the advertising board
« on: July 28, 2015, 09:09:03 PM »
Hi there, just wanted to know if it's possible to take any further anti-spambot measures for the advertising board, perhaps a captcha if one doesn't exist, or a Warriors trivia question, to try and avoid some of those bots that have been attempting to post spam in the subforum.

I've deleted some, but they keep trying it and those "Posts waiting approval" emails five times a day are driving me up the wall, lol.  I don't mind getting them if it's a legit post, just not for bots.

I actually just enabled the captcha for guest posts about an hour ago; not sure how it got turned off since I thought it used to be on. There has been a ton of spam, but now the captcha's set up so hopefully that will cut down on it!
