How the new guest boards works.
« on: March 04, 2008, 07:42:03 AM »
You may have noticed the new guest boards at the bottom.

I set these to up so any one can post in them.
I tried this before and had trouble with spam the first day.

This time things should be different, I hope. :)

Guest can post in them, but can not post links or attachments.

If they try to post a clickable link they get a message that they must register to do so.

There maybe other limits I will need to set for the guest boards as time goes on.
Will see how it works out.

Thanks,

Hope this works for you, AJ. I had to do the same thing requiring registration and approval first before posting. It seems the hackers can now supercede the CAPTCHA code and register anway. I may have to dis-allow a few applicants, but I definitely don't have any spammers.

The most commonly abused email is "gmail", it seems that Google allows automatic signup for free email addresses. This is what my spammers use the most.
