Back to school!!
Most of us here are students, and we don't have that.Maybe a bit extreme,but not allowing the registrations through free email will solve this problem.Use the mail facility provided by your ISP/workplace to register.
redcafe does that: p.
Be sure that mods will keep upto such a daunting task, I had seen this method before, in one forum it took my 6 days to get approved, I stopped checking on third day.Hmm...right. I keep banning atleast 2-3 people each day because of this spam.
I think what raksrules said is a nice idea. We can moderate his 10 post.
And we have many mods here and all of them are active, so it would be really daunting task but personally I can look for manual approval of registrations.(Though this point wont work in case of a spammer, we can't identify the spammer by looking at his IP and ID only, I guess so)
Correct me if I'm wrong.
Here's a good idea, new member with less than 25 posts and 5 days stay do not get to post links, or has it been implemented already?
That is a total cr@p method, spam monitoring is one thing, writing essay is another.Hmm.. Now I can relate why Team-BHP tests the users creative writing skills for registration. Can that be implemented?
Plus, people come here to get knowledge, if I could write an essay about computers I wouldn't even come here in the first place, so scratch that.
One more reason I never registered there, if I could write an essay about cars I would not go there(actually I could, but I'd rather not).
It'll reduce the traffic, I'd say if you go this way(I'd suggest not to), you need a dozen more mods.Moderating first 5 posts will be a very daunting task considering the fact we get around 50 registrations every day.
Is anyone in favour of only allowing registrations on weekends?
Any other similar method? One that cannot be bypassed yet?reCAPCTHA can be easily by passed. Don't know how, but it isn't *strong*.
Maybe permutation/combination or probability sums, those are .....interesting...Give'em a calculus problem to solve, only the geeks shall pass.
I'll be the first to get kickedCalculus?
Better ask questions on Chemistry// Many people will run away.
