Registration Requirements

Post by ForumAdmin » Wed Aug 01, 2012 1:04 pm

In light of the recent wave of attacks by Spam Bots, I have heightened the security settings for joining the forum. This won't affect regular users but it should (hopefully) make it much harder for Spam Bots to infiltrate / register and post their annoying adverts. Many of these changes are not directly visible and will not make any noticeable difference to performance or stability, but our server now has some extra tools hidden within its arsenal to combat Spam, Spyware, Adware, Fraud, Identity Theft, etc. The various logging databases were also recently updated for more accurate record-keeping.

Some of the visible code modifications include updates to the UCP Registration screen:

When you click to register, you will now be asked a Security Question. This is a means of identifying and preventing automated submissions that are able to bypass regular CAPTCHA modules. Furthermore, you will also have to fill in your location, which can later be updated in your User Control Panel.

Please contact me via PM or email (admin@tamaskan-forum.com) if you encounter any difficulties or problems as a result of these new updates. Thank you!

With kind regards,
The TDR Committee
