I'm game, if that's ok. The bots have been really getting on my nerves since the early days of the forum.

Well, I guess I'll be a mod if you want me to.

Okay guys!, I picked moop and OmochaoAbuser for the mod positions since they have seniority, and should be familiar enough with the rules the happenings.

Just move the bad spambot posts to the trash topic. I'm not sure, but Xeniczone may have set that topic up with some kind of coding that bans users or something built into it or something like that.. No idea.

Anyway, I think the problem may be getting worse. Just caught one in Site Suggestions.

Re: WE'VE GOT TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THESE SPAMBOTS!!!

They're everywhere in the Welcome section. Is the account creation form in need of revamping?

Edit:I just looked at the Register page, and the Captcha is kind of absurdly easy. Is it possible to update it to something like that new one where you have to put pieces of a puzzle together?

Also: Moved this topic to the Site Discussions section.
