  • Undesirables registering

    How can I stop the influx of undesirables from registering on my forums. I have the image verification enabled. I do have a way of determining when someone registers whether it is someone that we want, or, someone that I need to delete. But, I'm getting very tired of deleting almost 3:1 registrations.
    What can I do?

    Unless you are psychic I don't see how you are going to be able to detemine if someone is desireable or not during registration.

      Steve,
      I have found a common thread among all of these registrations. This is how I can tell automatically that these folks are not ones that I want on the forum. These people are either pushing porn sites, or pills, etc.
      Is there a way that the software can automatically block these registrations when this common thread is entered in their registration process?

        As per your support ticket this requires modifying the code.
