Registration changes

Post by SebastianG » Mon May 19, 2014 4:33 am

Hello everyone,

I needed to add a question in the registration form to prevent spam-bots from joining the forum.
At the moment the question is quite easy and it seems to work for the moment.

Best regards,
Sebastian

The question was obviously to easy for many spam-bots ;)

I changed to question to a more specific one, but don't worry there are multiple possible answers :)

Here is the question:
What is the "medium" for light propagation?
Everyone can also suggest additional questions.

Now, the forum compares the registration with the database of http://stopforumspam.com.

This should stop the spammers and also simplifies the registration process 8-)

We also had to deactivate 4 accounts which use suspicious email domains!

I disabled the Stop Forum Spam extension and reactivated the anti-spambot question.
