    Spambots are somehow getting right past it.

    About reCAPTCHA, is it possible they may have it set incorrectly? I haven't logged into their ACP yet, I'm doing research on this now while I wait to hear back from the current forum admin.
    I've checked your forum and your reCAPTCHA is working fine. Try to use Q/A instead. And here is some tips about how to deal with spammers.

  • Proper entry for Human Verification Q&A (spammer problems)

    Hey guys, I'm helping out some friends with spammers on their vBulletin 4 forum. I'm going to give Q&A Verification a whirl, but I want to make sure I enter the details correctly.

    Specifically, if I ask a question, what is the proper method of inserting multiple correct answers? Do they need to be separated by just a space, or comma?

    Example:

    Q - How many band members are in Black Sabbath?

    A - Four, or 4.

    Just want to make sure I get that set up correctly for them. These guys are getting annihilated by spammers, the forum needs rescuing!

    Also, if anyone has any extra suggestions aside from Q&A verification, I'm all ears. I'm particularly concerned about human spammer registrations that are then turned over to bots.

    Thanks,
    D
