I could do with some input, I have a pet hate which is CAPTCHA when a new member registers they see a hazy word which they have to decipher and then type in. I opted not to do that with this forum and went for a rather to simplistic approach by asking a question (2+3=) to catch out the automated spam bots. It seems we are still attracting manual (or maybe automated) spam in the form of new users with links in their profile selling loans, Viagra and God knows what else.... So.. as this is a local forum the questions for the registration should be about local knowledge but also not deter people. The forum allows multiple answers to the same question i.e. what is Wolverhamptons football team: Wolves Wolverhampton Wanderers etc This will hopefully stop the young entrepreneurs from the Far east! If you have any ideas for good questions please PM me, don't post here as that would be counter productive! I can ban IP addresses from suspect countries but I would rather not do that.
