This doesn't particularly warrant a news post so I'm just going to sticky it here, since this is where most of the SPAM threads are based.

SPAM Bots are the users who sign up on WBO and post a seemingly unrelated post about a product with links in the post. These are essentially advertisements posted by people who have absolutely no interest in Beyblade.

If you come across one of these, please report it, and do not post in the thread, there is literally no point in doing so - you are only making matters worse by bumping the thread.

Just report it and ignore it, and a member of staff will delete it.

Thank you.

Of course that you-know-who whose been using a dynamic IP is the closest thing to a bot, we need to definitely shield off dynamic IP's one way or another.

I did not post that guys name, just in case he is "perched on a corner" waiting to post smut on our boards like he *possibly* did earlier this year again?

Yeah, they are becoming quite the problem. I've seen close to around (20 I guess?) in the past few weeks/month. I wish there was a way to stop them, but at least they usually come on during the night time and I can report them.

I am more or less worried about the servers picking up a slew of level-4 viruses from these profiles.

Timers, eh?

I see that most of these crack the CATCHPA Code if that is the case.

Hrm... It HAS become increasingly common. It's annoying, and it wastes the mods and admins' time. I agree, someone's gonna pick up a virus if nothing is done. Or one of the links in a profile's signature may lead to a virus.

We even tried enforcing email registration upon registration, but even that did not work, they still activated themselves.

Anyway, I had already made a news post about this, but I suppose nobody reads it anyway :

We have easily been getting more than ten every day this week ...

Like his sense of justice would not allow him to sleep, since he had so many difficult cases to think about, battling unfathomable pressure on a daily basis.

Ten ?!

Man, this is huge. I noticed that topic, but I think that now it is sticked, people will notice it more, unless it is similar to what you said in the 'Posting Results' Thread in the Beyblade Customizations Forum. Hopefully it will not begin that way.

WOW. I thought that there were only maybe 1 or two a day? Amazing.
I say that it's amazing, even though I obviously know it's horrible. I wish there was a way that we could make a sort of "filter" for new members, however I'm sure that something like that does not exist yet...

Do you have any anti bot questions active on registration? I know there's a few different ones out there, mathematical, image verification, easy answer questions.

Obviously they are not really bots if they can pass the Captcha verification, as well as go activate their account in their email.

I believe there are a few anti-bot Plugins out there... looking as I type. I know of reCAPTCHA II and reCAPTCHA III, although I'm not sure how much help they'll be, or if you've already installed them. Didn't see Kai-V's post. Also, is there something similar between them, like *@yahoo2010.com, or *@yahoo2011.com? Although, I'm pretty sure Kai-V would've already checked that, seeing as that's what she advised me to do in this situation?

They might claim it is better than the default CAPTCHA, but seriously if they can pass the default one, then they should be able to pass reCAPTCHA too ...

No. I try to ban as many similarities as I can find, but there really are not much. I just banned a whole spread of Russian IP addresses, but otherwise there are barely any similarities.
