Better spambot protection installed
« on: December 11, 2008, 10:16:21 pm »
The other spambot protection that I installed about a month ago was a modification using a script and files hosted on the author website. Because of that, whenever their server was down, nobody could register on any forum using their mod and for people with slow connections they were often forced to reload the register page until it loads completly, not to mention sometimes the CAPTCHA included was ridiculously hard to solve. So now I added a new mod that requires you to type additional informations on the register page. First you will be asked to type "TIMGUL" (without the quotes) in a field and then asked 2+2, which you alerady know the awnser. Hopefully this will continue stopping spambots like the other mod did but without registration problems.
