We do have a security check that folks need to complete correctly before they can post. I've gone in and activated Akismet so hopefully that catches a few more spam bots that pass through the security check.

|g96nt||Yeah. Last forum I joined was for kristens matrix. They asked "what is the second letter in Pontiac?"|

"What color is a lightning blue Viggen"
That's a perfect spam question

|Saabeh||Every larger forum I belong to has that feature, new users need to be approved. Not entirely sure how to tell if a new user is a fake though, any insight on that?|

There is a few ways that we could try to limit the amount of spammers on here. We could try something like restricting new users from posting until they reach a certain number. We could also look into possibly making a new usergroup where new registers have to be approved first but the mods, only have freedom to post in one section until they reach the desired quota, etc. It's a matter of how you and the other mods feel about this.

Forum Site Spam
I have been deleting between 5-20 threads and banning 3-10 people per day. It is absurd. Is there any way to prevent or deter spam posts on the forum?
