Registered but not yet active?

Postby JoeStrout » Wed Aug 06, 2008 7:23 pm

We are getting deluged with spammers — a hundred or more of these slimy bottom-feeders signing up per day. I go through every week or two and try to clean them out, but it's a bit of a chore and I don't do it as often as I should.

So, if you have registered with the forum but you can't yet log in because your account hasn't been activated, please just send me email (admin@talk-polywell.org) and say so. I'll activate your account right away.

(Also, if you haven't signed up yet, then when you do, please try , so I don't delete your account by mistake.)

Thanks,
- Joe

There are now over 390 thousands users on the , but of these are properly just 1% real users. What about deleting all the zero post users and implementing a secure captcha in the sign-up form like google recaptcha?

I moderate/administer another phpbb based forum, using both captcha and email confirmation to filter out bots. And moderation of new user posts before they appear publicly. Until recently I was cleaning out 5-10 spammers a day. Then I installed . Since, I've enabled guest comments and still have ~70% less spam, of far less obnoxious form. But there are probably spammer accounts piling up, not revealing themselves as readily.

On reflection, blocking URL posts for unconfirmed users is so obvious I'm a bit surprised it isn't a standard feature.

I keep seeing all this user activity but no comments
In total there are 41 users online :: 4 registered, 0 hidden and 37 guests (based on users active over the past 5 minutes)
