Visual Confirmation





garionw
Due to the recent Spampost's in the Guest forum, is it possible, that on the Guest forum you have some sort of visual confirmation. It could be a simple if statement, I think:

Code:

if ($_SESSION("loggedin") == false){
 // Thingy Goes Here
}


Or to even more spammy-proof, you could have email confirmation before the post gets published (Much like an E-Card!)

not a bad idea to stop this spamming. Some type of captcha (or whatever it is called)

We're looking for a phpBB mod that does this. but we only need it for that one particular forum.

If someone can get us a link to a (reliable) mod which enables compulsory visual confirmation to post, I think we'd consider installing it. On the other hand, if it requires Bondings to have to manually code that, it may take some time as there are some other things that he needs to code which are more important. (Hopefully, you'll be seeing some of them within the next 2 weeks)

Ill have a look for you now Wink

Sunny already found a catchpa mod. I'm not sure how good it works, but I'll try it out.

By the way, we already have a confirmation, but it isn't hard to spoof with a bot.

However, there isn't much we can do about manual spamming other than remove it once it appears.
Bondings
And I got it working! Let's hope most of the spam will be gone now.

But since I'm not a genie, I say...
