How to prevent spam regestration ? - NomanProdhan - 2014-06-10

In my forum I got more than 30 spam registration everyday. I also set some Disallowed Emails but it didn't work. Can anybody tell me how I can prevent spam registration ??

Use the Registration Question plugin on the Mod site. Delete the included questions andwrite some specific to your niche.

not bad questions imo... you can try to replacing the "Powered by MyBB" text into a image...


RE: How to prevent spam regestration ? - NomanProdhan - 2014-06-10

Don't find any image for that. Sad Can I replace from "Powered by MyBB" to "Forum Software Provide By MyBB" and will it work ??


RE: How to prevent spam regestration ? - mmadhankumar - 2014-06-10

you are free to change the text to anything which provides a similar meaning as powered by mybb and a link back to mybb.com

if you are using a dark themed footer, feel free to get the image from my forum's footer and use it

I would guess the weak link is the question that asks if you are human or a bot.

1: Don't make questions binary so they have a 50% chance of guessing.
2: Almost all human spammers and many bots know that bot is a bad answer.

Since each user can keep trying until they get a question they like, one weak one can make it all fall apart.
