Sorry it's taken me so long to post, but I've spent most of the day at the hospital having some tests done. Everything's okay.

I haven't had any spammers since the fix went in. I think it worked! (Knock on wood!)

I like that the links open in a separate tab. Thanks!

John


I'm glad to hear the tests came back good. If there's anything you need from me down the road don't hesitate to PM me.

Also good that you haven't seen any spammers either. I'll give it to the end of the week then close out this thread if nothing else pops up.

I haven't seen any spammers since Friday morning, what about you John? I think we're in the clear (knock on wood).

Also as an FYI I got new links to open up in a new window, instead of just opening as a frame within the site. It only affects new links going forward. Old links will still open within the site table.

Hey John,

So the google captcha integration was a complete failure. Probably 20 spammers hit in the 4 hours I had that up. So I went with another option...Basically you have to answer a custom question which I set to "what is King's first name". Apparently this sort of simple Q&A is unanswerable robot spammers ( vs the imaged based versions that ARE crackable by robots)

The Good news:
- Zero new spammers registered since this latest authentication method hit

The bad news:
- Some of the spammers that registered yesterday and the day before started posting last night.

I've gone in and just mass disabled the accounts of everyone that joined in the last 48 hours. I think that'll solve the problem (knock on wood). Keep an eye out and I'll do the same. If we make it thru the weekend without the board getting flooded then we should be good.

I saw that ( and thanks for the deletions) - there's an option to integrate google's authentication into the forums now instead of the basic authentication built in. I'm researching that now and I'm hoping to get it into place within a day or two. We'll see if that helps.

I've deleted dozens of spam. I've tried banning the spammers, but I may have missed some. the new protocols are definitely NOT working.

I just deleted a lot of spam. The fix didn't help much.
