CAPTCHA for New Registrations

Postby Chris » Sun Jan 25, 2015 8:54 pm

I think the forum needs CAPTCHA (Write the word from the picture) for New Registrations as a security measure to hopefully stop SPAM bots. As you can see from the current spam bot invasion just deleting the account doesn't stop them coming back.

I'd be happy to help with the technical details.

This sounds like a good idea. There have been a couple of spambots in quick succession over the past few days.

Maybe with a new owner this will be looked at, been suggested many times in the past.
Even as an administrator, I had no access to the actual forum setup
