Spam

I noticed loads of spam on this forum today. Reported some of them, but this would be an everasting battle

I don't know if it's possible to add akismet or another captcha to this forum, or maybe using http://www.stopforumspam.com/contributions to block spam from coming through.

Re: Spam

Hi EdwinKort,

Thank you for reporting spam.

You see more spam because some moderators are in vacation.

We already have a captcha.

Thank you for the stopforumspam link, I'll see what we can do.

Don't let them go on  vacation. We never let any of our moderators go on a break. They still do however :(

And how do you solve this problem with SPAM? I read this forum since 2009 but last 2weeks it became impossible because of many spam themes. Make captcha as on this travel**url moderated**.

Re: Spam

I have implemented stopforumspam, on registration and guest posting. I'm tired to see dozens of spams each day :-/

Re: Spam

Let's see how stopforumspam is efficient first

For now the only spam was from a user registered on piwigo.org/extension (not checked against stopforumspam) and the posting as registered user (not checked against stopforumspam)

On piwigo.org/ext we should force registration on piwigo.org/forum

Re: Spam

Great :)

Honeypots are okay, but they don't really stop spam, you only provide the organisation behind it with data of the spammers. It's cool too.

Re: Spam

I was thinking of https://www.projecthoneypot.org
Did you test it?

Re: Spam

Yes, I've got it running on my blog-site, and it really caught loads of spammers. It isn't intended to stop spammers though. It only identifies them so others can check for IP's.

For example, this is a list of spammers caught through a hidden link on my site:

Harvesters You've Helped Catch:
24.182.45.28 (HR)
77.165.45.196 (H)
72.233.72.139 (HR)
90.170.113.125 (H)
198.54.202.195 (HCR)
92.85.60.177 (H)
196.25.255.250 (HC)
196.25.255.195 (HC)
195.116.35.251 (HSDW)
92.85.46.200 (HSR)
92.82.228.135 (HS)
92.85.47.23 (H)
151.27.77.1 (H)
90.165.33.146 (H)
88.208.221.9 (H)
62.45.4.31 (H)
92.85.46.35 (HS)
80.61.59.140 (H)
94.23.249.32 (HSC)
195.229.242.53 (HCR)

Now also installed one on my gallery site.

Re: Spam

It seems like the kitchen and outfit spam is back like before. I have the feeling they are as numerous as before but can't confirm
