Been too so many forums, but, it seems Matrix Games seems to excel at being spammed.
Come on guys, it isn't rocket science, stop telling us about what you can't do.
We know that capchas or whatever they are called have limitations. Stop expecting them to do the work though. Ever thought of using a different bloody method?
How about new accounts can only post once in an hour or a full day. Come on, I don't think there are that many people that desperate to post 20 posts in 20 minutes around here. Leave the limitations until the account is either 100 posts in or 1 month of active. Again, I fail to see the real harm. If I was told I could only post once today, my life would go on.
Every time the forum ends up looking like it is run by clueless amateurs, it reflects that to all the observers. This is a company forum of a company that wants to be taken seriously (I would assume). That I have seen Matrix Games beaten up by spammers for as long as I have seen, leads me to think the people in charge of this forum haven't the foggiest idea of how to properly secure a bloody forum.
Which tends to only make the company look bad.
For god's sake, hire someone that actually DOES know something about running a proper professional web site.
No, the people currently in charge don't.
If this was my forum, I'd be telling the person responsible for the daily running of the forum they either figured it out, or I was hiring someone that knew what they were doing.
Harsh sounding perhaps, but sometimes that's what you need to hear.
