Account Register Changes

Post by Carl the Llama » Thu Aug 08, 2019 10:00 pm

Instead of having the tootsie pop question to register it is now a reCAPTCHA so we can reduce the amount of bot spamming that occurs on the site. As much as I want to hold onto nostalgia like this I would prefer not having to ban and delete posts from spammers on a fairly regular basis. This past week or so alone there are around 25 new account spamming ads, a handful of which will post 70-200+ messages each.

It's really just a bandaid solution to a larger problem as spam accounts still get through. I have a lot of October off to look into better options though.
