    I noticed it over at XDA, new users can't post links, I presume there is some kinda post limit in place. Might be useful here.

    you get a lot of spam bots here? i never noticed, but i dont venture out of the eris forum much.

    for spam prevention i highly recommend using using both recaptcha and human verification on registration. pretty sure vb 3.8 has this built in.

    this is like a brick wall for spam bots.

    i see you use human verification already, add recaptcha and that should help a lot.

    limiting posting privledges will help no doubt but at that point it is kinda too late, the bot already registered and now has used up a username for no reason....it will try to post spam and might succeed, just the link will be dead, you will still need to clean up te posts.

    Good suggestion, which we may think about - but we really do pretty good with the spam bots..
