    As some of you are aware we have been the target of a decent amount of spam recently mainly due to Re-Captcha & other image verification methods being easily solved by spam bots.
    To help combat this we have had to introduce a few measures that will make the moderators life easier by making it harder for spam bots to get through, however in doing this we have had to place a few restrictions on new users.


    Registered Users are now restricted from creating & commenting on blogs, You can still view them but restrictions will only be removed once you are promoted to Active User status.
    Registered Users must now answer a security question before posting a thread, This requirement will only be removed once you are promoted to Active User status.
    Registered Users that has been registered for less than 7 days or have less than 5 posts will have advertising shwon.
    Registered Users are automatically moved to the Active Users group once they have been registered for more than 7 days & have made atleast 5 posts.


    We hope you agree that these restriction levels are low enough for any member to reach to become an active member, but should be high enough to prevent spam bots.
    We will also be working to create further Promotion Levels so that active members are rewarded for there activity in the very near future.

    *Note: as this has only just been implemented, it will take the system a few hours to process and update your accounts*

    Good to hear you are taking measures. It was sickening seeing those "watch this bullsh!t for free zomg" kind of threads.

    However I am not sure what spam prevention has to do with forcing ads on the new members, and I too am getting ads now. Hope it gets better in a few hours like you stated.

    Thanks.

    I have switched the verification method again, added a few more questions and added a few required fields to registration.

    Hopefully... that will work now & I will add more questions tonight.
