Seriously, how hard is it to alter the register screen to prevent bots to register screen?

As a Mod I can only delete the posts which I have done so far.

The rest is up to Admin...

Unfortunately with phpbb2 being outdated, there are not many anti-spambot plugins around for it.
This is a really good one which I use
https://www.phpbb.com/cus...captcha_plugin/

But it only works with phpbb 3.0.6 onwards

Seriously, admins, do something about this. I have no interest in seeing the whole Jersey family posted here several times.

This isn't looking good.
Admin need to delete & ban these ones that are posting & I think it would be a good idea to disable new registrations until something can be sorted out to stop them registering.

Upgrading to phpBB3 would stop them as there are plenty of anti spambot plugins for it.
You'd lose the theme though & would have to replace the shoutbox with mChat.

Converting phpBB2 to phpBB3

Kanta, are you the only one moderating this site now? (while without admin powers) Where is everyone else? At this rate the group will be run into the ground. All that hard work to simply let the group go to waste.

Jon, I am here more regularly then the others. I have reported the issue so we won't "run into the ground." We are making progress. ;)

And there is my point. If you are here mostly, they should make you admin with powers to remove repeated offenders and spammers.

+1

This is the only Jarre sites I visit. I would be devastated if it closed. I may not post much but I visit everyday in the hope of some eagerly awaited Jarre news.

Thank you for the vote of confidence. :D Let me put your minds at rest. At the moment, Beatle is on the case of the spammers. :wink:
