Powers will be coming with new version, am totally happy to mod the forum to include them if they are not extensive enough as well :)

By the way, I really have seen myself a HUGE drop in spam, a total of 2 spammers I've banned so far, on the old site it was around 2-3 a day I was deleting some times.

I see in the logs the bot scripts are still trying to attack the old URLs so it might just be a matter of time until they adjust, but generally, pretty good round here imo!

I also have a few things I'll be installing on the registration/login pages to block a lot of them, got lots of tricks up my sleeve, but generally, I'm very pleased at the lack of spam.

I still think we should adopt one of the spam bots, and make it our mascot... give it a signature and an avatar and let it roam free. It could be our pet.

We could even have conversations with it about WOW GOLD and ERECT PENISES if we get bored enough.

Actually thats not a bad idea when you consider that any other forum that uses gravatar, and the bot is signed up with would have its avatar.

You could have a little phrase on the avy saying "I'm a spammer please ban me", or better yet "Make Games With Construct!".

It would be cool if it posted:
"I'm different."

Ooooh I love this idea of having a small space in the forum where we let our spambots run happily around together, where you can pet them, feed them and discuss about erectile problems or golf equipment all night long...

Can we keep it? Please?sved2011-07-05 07:10:48
