Anti Spam measure

Recently there has been some attempts to send spam via this forum, they have not yet succeeded but I have noticed some attempts.

Due to this I have added a new security measures in the sign-up process.

Visual Confirmation - In the sign up process, the forum will show you a few random letters/numbers that you need to enter in a text box. This is to prevent automatic-sign-up programs to sign up several members to the forum in just a few seconds.

Note: This affects only new members that sign up as of today.

I hope this will prevent us from getting spammed in the forum. We get enough spam in our e-mails :)

I am continuing to work on making this a spam-less forum.

As of last night, only members that are logged into the forum can see other members e-mail addresses. This good, since many robots (computer programs) is continuously scanning web pages for e-mail addresses and then later send spam to them.

In addition to the anti-spam measures listed above, I have now added e-mail confirmation to the list.

New members need to check their e-mail after signing up, then click the link in the e-mail they get to activate their account. Once this is done, you can sign in as before.

I'm sorry to have to make the sign-up-process so long, but this forum is and will be spam-less.

If anyone have any problems signing up, please let me know and I can help you out (ivar.rekve [at] gmail.com).

Un saludo desde Santiago,
Ivar
