Welcome to the Dyson forum.

This is just a post where I'll dump various forum info.

Captcha
I put the captcha back down to a reasonable level, as people were complaining that they couldn't register as they couldn't read stuff like this:


I mean, come on. Who couldn't read that? Anyway it should be fairly doable now. On the down side, that means we tend to have more...

Spam Bots
I've taken to deleting spam bots before they've even posted anything.

If you register for this forum and find your account mysteriously deleted, that was probably me, sorry. I will delete newly-registered accounts that have meaningless usernames with strings of numbers in with equally stupid email addresses. I don't think I've screwed up yet, but just to let you know :)

Is there any problem using reCaptcha (http://recaptcha.net/)? - it looks easily readable in most cases and AFAIK it is highly reliable against bots.
Spent 15 minutes. I cannot read captcha sample you've posted Smiley

If you are having trouble registering it's because I've buggered it up at the moment. Please come back in say half an hour when I'll have either given up and reverted it or fixed it :)

Right, welcome to the new forum! Simple Machines Forum is used by such notable sites as TIGSource and Zombie Cow Studios and they never seem to get spam. So there!
