There are like five spam posts at the top of every subforum.

The spammers are out of control. :lol:

The CAPTCHA on the registration page seems to be doing nothing.

Can't a more advanced version like reCAPTCHA be implemented?:

We've had issues where reCaptcha wouldn't load at all and then nobody can register. Looking for an alternate solution.

Can show a screenshot from Nolan's movie and ask from which movie it is? :think:

I have seen some cool registration forms at torrent sites tbh. :ninja:

New here. Spent 20 minutes last night reporting spam bot posts in the "Unread Posts" section, simply doing my part.
Thought I would bring attention to it here however, as that seems to be the place to look to immediately find those.
My 2 cents would be maybe blocking people from posting until they create an account? Not sure if guests are allowed to post or not, like I said I am new here. Anyways, thought I would bring that to the front, thank you.

Guests can't post - these bots do make an account. My suggestion would be making first 5 (let's say) posts from new accounts to be approved by mods. Still would be a lot of work for them, but aesthetically the forum would look much cleaner.

Good idea - would a more difficult captcha be easier though?
