    First of all you can expend Q&A to like +10 questions and answers (AdminCP -> Settings -> Human Verification Manager), then you can use modifications (can be found at www.vbulletin.org) to prevent spammers like SPAM-O-Matic. Here you will find a thread on how to prevent spammers from registering on your forum:

    Also have a look at AdminCP -> Settings -> Options -> Spam Management.

    Why cant I combine like a question and answer WITH a image verification together they only let me choose one or the other?
    Just using the Q&A option with a number of relevant questions that aren't hard for the bot makers to program their way around is better than Image Verification.

    It basically matches registering members' IP address and/or e-mail with an updated database of spammers and prevent them from registering. I've had some serious problems with spammers until I installed this mod, and since then it is working like a charm
    And this is even better.

    Need some major help I am getting a bunch of spamming each day. It has only been like this for the last couple weeks but has not stopped on a daily basis. The members are getting frustrated since they are ruining our threads.
