At least no grey seedlings attacking the Mother Tree since you’ve returned ;)

I have added an extra question to the registration process, I don't know how easily spam bots can get around it but hopefully it will help.

Sorry to re-awake this horrible thread, but wave 9001 has started :/

I guess we need better security again D:

How exactly are the bots getting around that 'Visual Verification' part? That's what I'd like to know.

I suggest adding some question(s) that can only be answered by reading the forums. Fairly easy to work out, but requires work that can only really be done by a human or a bot specifically made for the task.

Y'know, like "Who created DAFT?" "Which user has two accounts? Eufloria Admin and ..." "In which country does Aino live". Stuff like that.

A better solution, Pilchard, would be to have question(s) that likely don't appear in most other forums. The bots won't be able to handle it because their creators have never come across question(s) like it. Unless the bots in question have hyper-advanced AI's with quantum blue-boxes and hi-tech photon interface systems.

For example...

(Just imagine those @'s are solid blocks of randomised colours)
@@@@@@@@
What colours are shown above (in order)?
<answer fields go here>

I'm pretty sure that will work. Maybe it'd work. Would that work? It probably won't work...

[EDIT] Read: this only an example. It doesn't have to be that particular question. It can be anything. [/EDIT]
[EDIT2] And please note the bracketed text directly above the @'s. [/EDIT2]

I don't think that'll work very well :/

Why not have an overly complicated image thing? and it can be eufloria related too, since the bots are far from eufloria relating, they are here for failed advertising :P

So you can have a picture of a tree, where an arrow points at the tree and ask "what is THIS?"... Since a computer can't encode that, unless it's a very smart computer :P

Harumph. >:(

That was just a simplified example, Aino. Besides, your suggestion falls under my criteria: something that most likely doesn't appear elsewhere in the net-iverse, aka, something they won't be prepared for. So haha.

Yes, but coloured text can be spotted much more easily than a picture, unless the text is inside of a picture :P

I did say those @'s represented random colour blocks. Didn't you notice the text directly above them in brackets?
