"Guest" Login will probably be discontinued

Beitragvon Wildcate » Fr Apr 25, 2008 3:43 pm

As our forum grows, it gets more and more interesting for spammers, and Jo and I are slowly getting tired of deleting more and more spam. If the rate continues like at the moment, there will soon be several spam posts per day.
There's already a thread in the German part discussing this, and most posters agree that it's better to abolish the option to post as "Guest" (since that is exactly what the spammers do) than to live with more and more p**n and medicine spam. Jo has already tweaked the filters, and there's not much more that can be done with the forum software.

Any strong objections against compulsory registering in the English part? Antony, you are still posting as a guest, will you be ok with registering?

All the best,
Kati

I'll figure out how to register in German - babelfish may not be of much use!

Hi Antony,

sorry - I didn't think properly, obviously, because it never occured to me that registering in German would be difficult for English speakers. How hard was it? Maybe we can tweak something, so it gets easier for the next people.

And welcome again to the Pinoforum!

All the best,
Kati

Not so hard to register (for me at least), and the bonus is that now I can set all the forum controls to English...

Now I've closed all categories as SPAM occured in all of them.

I'll explain it also in an extra thread in "FAQ".

Chao!

Hello !
About difficult things that may occur for non german speakig people... I'm not sure as I'm not often connecting, but I think it sometimes happen that we're asked for some safety test in german. For instance : Is banana a fruit or an animal... No ? Doesn't exist here ? I'm mixing everything ?
Let's just ay that it was my opportunity to say you hello !!!
