    Default Why don't we make it...

    So users with 10 posts or fewer can't post links?

    I'm assuming Mewtwo would have to download some kind of plug-in.

    Oh, and make less the 10 posts user not able to make threads.

    I beleive this limits the rights to limited posters, soon we all have a slippery slope on muting and spamming any non-elites.

    But most of the spambots don't create threads or post links, blaaaaaaah. They post vague comments in existing threads with links in their signature.

    No, they will just make 10 posts saying "thanks," like they already do, then link spam. How about this: you limited to only post in the new poster forum until you can be approved that your real. If not that, disable posting all together until they PM pichubro or ninetails, saying they are real.

    Why not have captcha's? I believe this site shows that it is possible with a simple addon to the forum:
    http://vanillaforums.org/addon/407-recaptcha


    Adding the addon to the forum makes it so that bots who cannot answer the captcha cannot have their application submitted. As well, recaptcha is sufficiently difficult to decipher so that no bot could do it.

    captchas are retarded. vb already has a captcha system that bots find terribly easy to get past. the best solution would be one or two custom questions on the registration page relating to pokemon that pokemon fans would be able to answer, non-pokemon fans could google and bots wouldnt have any idea what to do with.

    Hey, that is actually remarkably brilliant. Just something simple like "Who's that pokemon?" accompanied by a Pikachu sprite or so would be quite effective.

    It can't be just Pikachu, the bots will break through that, we would need some sort of captcha that cycled through pokemon.

    well there are quite a few pokemon that we have, 5 generations now. So thats not so difficult.

    We probably only need about 10 or 20 images

    Jesus look at this: http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y23...gipaddress.jpg

    And it's not the only IP address to do this either. Someone MUST have the power to ban ip addresses.

    i think you should begin with "no one can be banned now, riots in the streets, you can thank me later".
