Title: NEW MEMBERS: About the Annoying Captcha
Post by: Prpl_Mage on October 21, 2014, 05:46:32 AM
If you're reading this then you are most likely a new member and have noticed our desperate anit-bot protection.

The Captcha that you are forced to enter is of really low quality (I know) and an action we had to take in order to stop a huge flood of bots spamming the forum with pictures and links around 2 years back.

Newly registered accounts are nowadays forced to enter a bot-proof Captcha (that is almost human-proof as well) until they have reached around 10 posts. So hang in there and it will go away. I promise!

Or just PM me and I'll remove it

Anit-bot? Never heard of one, but I must say I looked at the capitcha that some of the n00bs mentioned and MAN O_o That is irritating, but I must admit it's a great bot deterrent. I mean before anybody critisizes it let us count how many bots, or trolls even, have appeared to flame, pic attack and spam us to death? *Holds up hand* Oh my o.o Seems we're a bit low on bots recently eh? ^_^ Heh heh. I mean the last time I saw one the stupid birthday board was showing an old porn-bot's name I think I recognized and I was all "What?! Bots don't need birthdays!" and thought about ranting...but eh I was too busy slaying dragon slayers.

Oh, man... I was trying to type it in without the "s"... And I didn't think about to try that out instead. Now I surely look stupid. XD Thank you. :D

That's nothing compared to me lol... I was floundering for about 15 minutes before I had the idea to search for this topic.

Is it possible to remove that particular question? I doubt I'd get it right myself, so it must be stopping new members join.

Wow, that last questions was a little harder than using the toaster. Maybe not so much as the four slotted ones though.  Thems are worse.  :D

So my answers were:

spam bot
spam bots
spam bot issues
serious spam bot issues
bots

I was amazed.  It seems like the last answer is always the one that works.  Thanks for the security.  I am happy to be part of a community that takes bots seriously as you do. 

Do you plan to get an SSL certificate?
