is there any chance of getting something built into geeklog that can help with hte spam sign ups, as I'm pretty much at my end with it.

I will try to get this custom code working, but the fact they can sign up even with the java program running is abit strange, could they be finding a way around it with phpbb?

sorry just more than abit of annoyed that i have 60 members, and 140 in total signed up members that have had to be deleted because they are spam users...

Should I bother installing the CAPTCHA, or has this pretty much been worked around?

Here is a quote I received today in my forums relating to gl-captcha v1.0.


It's still great that you made this CAPTCHA.

In the span of the last 5 days it has stopped 106 attempts, twice they were followed by attempts to login with the user they thought they created.

So I would say it is at least worth a try if you want another tool to help combat spam bots. There are ways to circumvent CAPTCHAs but I have not heard of any issues so far with gl-captcha.

Thanks!

I know Captcha, it is not the best spam-software, but strong enough to spam forums.
