    It might be an idea to get someone to be a forum moderator who lives in North America or Europe. That way when the ArtRage crew is sleeping, these posts can be deleted quicker.

    I agree my daughter often visits this site..... :evil:
    Another forum that I am a member of gets around this kind of thing by only allowing you to post links to other sites after you have posted a certain number of times.....I know it wouldn't have helped this time but it might resolve some of the problem.... :? It's just a suggestion.

    i love the effort of the ambient team to make this forum as easy as possible.

    but i t seems that we need a securer system for login (don't know what is the best). it's a sad world indeed.... :cry:

    hope there is a good solution...

    On another forum I help run, we have it set so the 1st post of every user has to be OK'ed by a moderator. This has worked wonderfully, but we have enough moderators across the globe where I don't think anyone has to wait for more than 10 minutes to get their post approved.

    I'd recommend it strongly if it's feasible. The advantages have outweighed the disadvantage for us.

    There isn't any test you can put on registering for the forum that will work. Actual people sit down and register for forums and post porn/spam. In my experience the only thing that has worked is approving the first post. That takes really responsive moderation, though.

    Are there any other moderators on this forum besides the Ambient Design staff? It seems wise to have some trusted community volunteer members that have been around a while to be promoted to moderator. New Zealand has to sleep sometimes.

    @aarku

    hmm i think most of this spam users are automated programs wich can be left outside by (as an example) the pictures with the morphed letters (only readable by a human user)!

    We've had a rash of spamming bastards over the past few days.
    We're looking into ways of making it harder for spammers to work, while keeping it as easy as possible for non-technical people to join the forums.
    AndyRage's mantra for graphics engine code:
    "Sure - how hard can it be?"

    Just an update on this. I've made some changes to the boards which should help prevent people from signing up and spamming.
