    Hey,

    Can something be done at the spam message that appear here.
    I suppose a forum where you pay for, should be able to stop bot to create spam messages?

    Just asking :)

    I report them as spam using the tapatalk function. Hopefully Joao can do something.

    Yeah, me too.
    But as said, for a paid service, they should be able to stop those bots

    I tried a demo version of the forum and in the admin section (Home > Options > User registration), you can change the CAPTCHA.

    I personally think the 2nd or 3th option would be better.

    HTH. :)

    Thank you for the tip! :D That's very helpful. I just changed it to Google's recaptcha with the "I'm not a robot" checkbox. :) Let's see if it helps! Thanks again!

    No problem, my pleasure. :)

    I suppose the google solution won't be easy to break trough, so hope they put a definite halt to spambots :)

    Spam messages are no longer an issue. I now verify all new messages by hand :p
