New Antispam mod, please report any issue

Post by wololo » Fri Dec 28, 2012 5:53 am

I've just installed an antispam mechanism on this forum. As you know, the Wagic forums have been plagued by spam bots lately, to a point where we had to moderate everybody's comments, which didn't scale.

This system is pretty aggressive at rejecting bots registrations or posts, but it also catches a few false alarms once in a while, so if you run into issues posting or registering, please PM me or email me ([email protected])

Basically the site's popularity keeps growing, and I think we got added to some spam tool's database. My full analysis of the situation here:
