    Default God or Dogar [or, whoever wakes up first]

    Don't change the captcha. Just look at the bots' IP and mass ban it via the admin control panel.

    All I'm saying is, if you went all the way to Mewtwo to get permissions fixed and went purging the boards of spam, you might as well do it properly!

    The IPs don't matter because they use different proxies every 2 or so registered accounts.We had over 13,000 bot accounts, it won't do anything. The best course of action is the captcha.

    THERE IS NO PRIMARY IP. They are all ranging from China to New York. All their servers are different too ranging from msn/comcast/shit I have never heard of. There is no central connection to all the bots just a bunch of proxies with different hosts.

    Then there's subgroups ie the russian ones, the english ones, the ones advertising medicine e.g. Isolate and ban.

    Again won't work. The first 2 or 3 numbers in an ip are a region like Asia or a certain state, all of which are too broad to ip ban because real users have those numbers in their ips. After that it's all random. Ip bans are worthless for taking care of proxy using bots.

    it's somewhat ironic how the bots have evolved on a pokemon forum

    Why does the CAPTCHA matter, though? I mean, why is it in your interest to not change it?

    I love how Dogar called it a 'CATCHU' by accident. It's a Pokémon themed catcha with the 'catch' and the 'chu', I love it.
