  • [Forum] Is this normal....

    I have 327 members, 308 of them are spammers and junk ass people taht don't post, aren't from america and are doing God knows what except for modifying their profile whenever they come on that is IF they come on.

    Than if they do, they post spam bull ****. I get about 20 posts a day tahts spam, and not 1 post is from a normal poster or anything I only get spam posts.

    Is this normal? I'm sure it is but what i mean is to this extent or high volume of?

    I wouldn't say it's 'normal', its more than possible and I'm sure it happens to a fair amount of sites. You need to look at your registration settings and get some human verification set up. vBulletin has a number of built in options that you can use but you can also use plungins like the Glow Host one that's available at the .org site.

      I can strongly recommend to set up Question Verification on registration.

      I cut my spam down to zero with that.
      I have a simple question: What is 2 + 3?
      And ppl have to enter 5 to be able to finalize registration.

        I have seen new sites with approx. the same amount of spammers.
        Change your registration verification to something that BOTs can't read.
        while(true){
        if(
        $someone->needsHelp() && $i->canHelp()) $post->help();
        if(
        $i->findBug()) $post->bug();
        }

                        Logout and try to register.

                            Good Thread,
                            I will check my settings as I sometime have a problem myself with the email verification part.
                            Whilst most of my new members go into the "Members awaiting Moderation" section so that I can carry out a second check on their ISP, some members don't get put in that section and I pick them up in "visitors in the last 24 hours" with a "awaiting email verification" marker in their profile.
                            Regards
                            Tony
