New registration field
Hey everyone

Hope 2011 is proving to be a happy year so far for you all Wee

After our discussion way back in 2009/10 about a new registration field to baffle spam registration bots (who have been badgering our forums since forever) I have finally installed a plugin that now asks BACK-ON related security questions!

As you may have noticed, we have been inundated with at least 5-10 new spam registrations each day for the past year that get past the first level of defence (activation by email) and on occasion have managed to successfully spam our forums. It does take time to clear them out every day, and for the past 3 days, we've even had 10+ spam accounts registering per day.

So hopefully this new change means that we will only get human beings who are interested in BACK-ON successfully registering to be part of the community. Thumbup

Thanks to everyone who participated in the discussion! Yaay
