SPAM control?
Apr 26th, 2012 at 7:00pm
Post Tools
Hello,

I am getting about 50-60 spam e-mail accounts attempting to register for our YaBB Bulletin Board daily!  This makes managing users almost impossible.  How can I fix this?  Please help!

Thanks,
Benjamin

Ideally, you'll want to go to BoardMod and install an anti-spam mod. I've been told that Carsten's Spamfruits is a good one.

But if you're like me, and don't know how to install mods, you can try this anti-spam hack by ggn that has been 100% effective for the YaBB forum I operate.

Good luck!
  

Morning, noon, or night, have a great one!

Mmmm, sarcasm. Undecided

I'm not on Windows to try them for you. The first couple listed look like they're worth a try though, like CamStudio. Like I say, I can't check them out because I'm not on Windows.

I think it was CamStudio that I played around with earlier but had problems with file sizes and conversions. I'm going to play around with it more when I have the time.

CamStudio is quite good.

I used it to build software product and web app 'tours'.

Good Luck
Cool
  

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

Okay, my apologies.

I don't like it myself when someone links to Google as if it's a solution, so I don't really know why I did it. I didn't know which one to recommend and I thought a couple in the results looked okay to try out.

Anyway, sorry if I was quick off the mark and didn't give you a direct answer. Embarrassed

Your link to Google was just fine, I had no idea how to make videos based of your PC. I really appreciated the link and don't mind doing a bit of work myself, searched a few and downloaded one to try.
