Battle of the bots :P
« on: October 22, 2018, 10:03:08 pm »
Have done a few things:

  • Added Google reCAPTCHA.
  • Could probably consider turning off registration for awhile. :P

I try to keep up with cleaning and banning and also adding rules to the server for complete deny at request for certain ranges.
But it's quite crowdy nowadays out there. :)


Any other suggestion would be welcome!

reCAPTCHA... obviously not working properly yet :)

Hmm... had to use the forum default but added simple questions that needs to be answered before registering.

Have any of the old members responded / registered yet?

Give me the week and things might be ready for a news letter.

Needs more mudkips. Also hi hunchie!
If there is a thread, I'll post in it. If I post in it, it will die. That is the cycle of the Walrus.

When people see me lurkin', they go pomgwtfnoesbbq and guestify. Are you a pretty little guest now too?

Well, I guess it was correct. Should go in the spam folder if it's not trusted. ;-)
I did some more settings, did it work better now?

I already whitelisted the email so I am not sure this means much, but yes I got it in my inbox now :)

No fun ;-)

Ok, it worked a bit better but still not working due to a forum/webserver/php setting.

Sorry for more spam. :)

Well, email is working as good as possible.
I'll look into if I can get a real static IP - IMO - we should all be on IPv6 now and more or less given one at birth...

One option could be to use a relay smtp host in the long run.
