Apparently a load of bots got in, I changed the registration spam filter, but there are still posts popping up from old bots

Just a suggestion - can't you put some captcha with images when posting a message? I'm sure the bots will not be able to crack that one.

Since they are robots I would expect them to keep on spamming unto eternity (I hope I'm wrong)

Deleted a bunch today....

No ; I didn't mean to use it in the registration. Can you put it up as when you actually do a post to have the captcha? I think it will solve and clean it temporarily. I don't know for sure that you can enable it to normal posts though.

If that is possible, seems like it could resolve this (she said hopefully).

Obviously they have to be banned, you don't have to keep removing topics if you don't also ban them.

Strangely though I deleted a bunch of accounts, but some of them are immune to that for some reason.
I hope the website is not hacked or perhaps it's a fault of the forum program.
I will just use the regular ban tool and see if that works.

edit: Okay, new bots have also joined, this could be because the new CAPTCHA isn't great (though it looks hard enough), I've also enabled':
'Enable spambot countermeasures for guest postings:
Requires guest users to pass the anti-spambot task to help prevent automated postings.'

But I think the forum is hacked or something, idk

Ok... so even after also having banned the same bot, it just posts again.. so it's hacked.

I'll also try banning them by username, email and IP.

Thanks for doing your best with this.

Bashar:

Handling challenging situations

Before you start, make sure you are thinking of this as a "challenge" rather than a "problem", because "problems" are by definition difficult to resolve, and it is actually the way you choose to define your reality that determines the outcome you experience! A "challenge" is much more likely to have a desirable outcome than a "problem".

Then, go into your imagination and imagine the version of reality you would like to be experiencing. Make sure you are including yourself in that picture. Specifically, imagine the "ideal" version of you - the "you" you would most like to be. Then insert this current challenging situation into your imaginary scene and notice how this imaginary "ideal you" handles the situation. Then just copy that behavior out here! Act the same way that the "you" in your imagination acted when confronting this situation.

You know everything you need to know to be who you desire to be - at any given moment.

It may not have been hacked.

They cracked the Q&A registering. Then I changed it to Captcha, which is known to not work well either, now I've made a new Q&A, this might work.
I'll delete the spam topics/users later.

Also there are mods you can install on the forum to prevent spammers which should work, but looks a bit difficult with coding and all so I may or may not do that.

The registration page is still showing a captcha when I just looked at it.

Maybe a temporary solution will be to stop registration for a while until there may be a better solution.
