Okay so I probably need to write my own forum system, because it appears that for every bit of free forum software out there, there’s twenty billion spambots waiting to pounce. Yet again my forum is being bombarded by spambots – and there’s no decent way of stopping it… *sigh*
So instead of spending my time working on the tracks, I’m spending it looking it at IP addresses of spambots and then blocking them individually. This makes it quite tricky to find “real users” over the automatons. – so if you’ve registered for the Forums and I’ve not “approved” you yet, it’s because I’m sifting my way through 200 user applications. (if you could do me the favour of signing up for the game Here – and use the SAME e-mail address to register on the forums (yes, I know this should be a unified registration system.. I tried that already and it failed miserably) – then I’ll be able to rig up some sort of “auto approval” script for those e-mail addresses..
I doubt the bots are sophisticated enough to read this message so that shouldn’t be a problem.. Pesky Bots.. *shakes fist*
