Hasta la vista, spam!

Map Maker: ,

If you’ve been following the forum you may have noticed my attempts at stopping spam. I have added a “trick” to the registration form that should and has stopped most spam bots from registering. I am also requiring admin approval of each user’s first post. With these two measures in place no spam has reached public viewing for a few days now.  Does anyone have a Victory banner handy?

If you are a new user on the forum don’t worry if your post doesn’t show up, it is simply being held in moderation until I get a chance to look at it. Once I’ve approved it you can continue posting like any other member.

On a sadder, yet unrelated note I woke up this morning to see that winter has started, my window will now look like this for the next six months.
