I couldn't agree more, and my suggestion for a point-of-registration CAPTCHA coupled with a simple Q&A feature - built right into the phpBB software but not activated - is in the inboxes of those who can make the changes.

Well Paul, I had to laugh at your comment; however, never make a Taurus (sign of the bull) angry. What i wrote above was also sent to Brian. I think more people should complain to him and perhaps he will show the emails to the big wigs in charge. Anyway, hope it helps. One other thing, YIPES WHAT'S WITH THE COLOR THING LIKE I SAID BEFORE, I NEED MY MAGNIFYING GLASS TO READ THE NUMBERS AND LETTERS. :mrgreen: But I'll keep smiling through all the strife :lol:

Carol, the different colors are a feature of CAPTCHA to foul spambots, although there are different levels of convolutedness to them. We seem to have been blesses with the worst.

Everyone: I've heard back from Brian, who has received your messages and has encouraged the techies to come up with something different to stop the spam. He emphasizes that spam-fighting here is a work in progress and to try to be patient (don't kill the mod) until they can get everything worked out to everyone's satisfaction. Be assured that he hates spam as badly as we do.

Slowly putting together a "replacement" forum at http://writerswriting.proboards.com.

It's still under construction, but come take a look.

Calm down, people. No need to abandon the forums yet. The codes are gone!

I've been here long enough to remember when this particular forum software was put into use, re[;acing what most though was a better system. In fairness, I think the powers that be thought this was great software when they installed it, but it's obviously outdated now.

There are systems out there now that make fighting spam both easy and cheap. We need it here.

I suggest a simple solution:

What if this site's frequent posters collectively agree to migrate to a different forum, and then carry on as usual?

Would "Tinicum Incorporated" get the message?

How about writers.net, which would be ideal for such an immigration? That site has been moribund for years, and if we all joined writers.net, we'd in effect own the place--it has only 3-4 regular posters as is.

And their vBulletin forum software works great!

Seriously--just a thought--
