Can not register to StopForumSpam

At this time , it appears no one can register to this forum. I have to go take care of the birds , everything is for the birds at this time. Sorry about any inconvenience. I will get back to this later when I know more.

Re: Can not register to StopForumSpam

That's one way to keep the spammers out. smile


We need better spam proofing technology - preferably the kind that electrocutes spammers with 50,000 volts 100 amps the moment they click "Post".

Re: Can not register to StopForumSpam

When I started this topic, it was based on 2 or 3 things, first off Alex pointed out to me, the last registration was 2018-09-11, that is a month ago  now, I had noticed that, but had not really given it much thought, and of course the fact that no more spam has been posted either, so that part is nice. But any way, I decided to try logging out, and try registering a "test " account, and found I couldn't. Tried again with a couple of other browsers, and the same, could not register, it requests a captcha response, but no captcha shows, so any way seems to have effectively rendered the registration process unusable. Since there have been 0 registrations so long, I am just assuming the same happens with other browsers, besides the 2 , or 3 I tried. Iridium, Seamonkey and Fire Fox. I did not try Chrome, or any other browsers.
So any way, we are just waiting to hear from Pedigree, he is the only one that can fix this.

...the fact that no more spam has been posted either...

You found the holy grail. smile

We just have to make it so the captcha appears for legitimate registrants but not for the spammers!

Re: Can not register to StopForumSpam

I've sent a PM + emails to ped's email + SFS support a few days ago. Now it is a waiting game.

Re: Can not register to StopForumSpam

Thanks Alex, and that is the main point of this topic, if there are "guests" that have been trying to register and find they can not register.  no need to flood the support contact form, etc. It is just a matter of waiting, and as soon as possible registrations will be available again.
Thanks.
