I wonder......
-wtf is this -.-?

Thanks, marked. Its… spammers ^^ We could disable PM’s altogether… Apart from that this is an open forum, so people can annoy you if they want :confused: Maybe we’ll find some plugin that can check for multiple messages from one account in a short time…

I got one that matched the above from @marauu but it looks like someone already cleared that account. For future reference, what’s the protocol for reporting this behavior?

Just like you guys did, by posting, best check if theres already a post (if its as “well named” as @mcbeth’s “ummm…” then you got a good excuse to start a new one though ;)). Or PM one of the Developers or Core Team members.

so true......... 8)

i hoped i will have somethin interesting in my inbox, but only spam spotted(marauu - deleted one) :frowning:



i think we should do somethin with it, becouse this is second situation(at least since i am on forum) and can be more. need a perfect captha :slight_smile:

The spammers use scripts for registration, for sure. Is there any chance to get some extra thing that one has to do before being allowed to register? E.g. a question like “what is 2+2”. Something that an automated script won’t detect.



I had much success against spammers on a phpBB forum in the past with a question with radio buttons to select the answer. Any answer was allowed, only not choosing an answer was forbidden.

Well, the fact that this hardly ever happens means the current system is pretty good.



When I had only basic captcha on my separate forum, I was getting 10-20 new bogus accounts a day… and I have far far less traffic than JME. I switched to something that even the humans have trouble figuring out and now I only get a new bogus account once a month or so because they guessed right by accident.



So on the one hand, it’s good to improve things but on the other, the gatekeeping is pretty darn good already. :slight_smile:

Its people I think. Being paid to spam. Cannot do much about it. The posting might be scripted but the accounts are created manually imo.

One of the best anti captchas I ever found Xd



“If yes is “orange” and no is “darkish blue”, are you a robot?:”

Giraffe.

I’m reviewing WangGuard because the “wang” part amuses me. Also it’s got stellar reviews. This will hopefully further decrease our already fairly low number of spammers.



I hope we can avoid disabling PMs alltogether.

Hiya,

I do love getting love letters, but I have a feeling this girl is a bit of a slut, considering how many other guys she is e-mailing… Wait… Slutty and desperate IS my type…!
