Bots be gone

Post by Bas » Tue Aug 27, 2019 5:39 pm

TAKE THIS YOU STUPID SUCKERS

Since ReCaptcha doesn't work much anyways, I changed the registration method to answering to which games we are playing (both Magic and Wagic are fine entries)

Bots still trying to move in (hopefully)

Admin used question attack.
It was very effective.
EveryBotEver fainted!

So unless other mods delete any bot posts (I doubt so) it looks like this change of measure defeated them all. Image

Yay! ❤️

I found a single bot posting and maybe 2 that could be, so please report back if these are on a resurgence again.

Hm, a few started to slip through again, they often have signatures or websites on which something is sold.

edit: Originally, I also added answers like "magic the gathering", "wagic the homebrew", including some version with punctuation marks. I removed options, now only 2 5letter valid answers are correct. Please post here if you spot any new bots now.

Issue is still there. I changed some configs, and hope they work, but not sure on that.

I need help. Can someone create a new acc and post in this topic?

I hope that mods having to approve post works, and I tried to create new accs with a trash-mail provider since I got no second email address, but somehow the activation URL didn't work:
The specified username is currently inactive. If you have problems activating your account, please contact a board administrator.

Anyone volunteering? :mrgreen:
