Yeah I just wish that most of them represented real people who posted a lot more. Smiley (i.e. not spam).

I am slowly going through and deleting the spam users. This may take a while and you will notice the number of members going down.

Good work Adam,
is their an automated way to prevent this from happening?
Some other forums I am on don't seem to have this problem.
Just so that it saves you from having to spend so much time on scanning posts and checking the integrity of new members to see if they are spam or not.

Not sure Damian, apart from manually vetting all members before they can join (which I don't want to do). I'll look into it soon though.

I have set it up now so that an activation email will be sent and the person will need to use that to register. This already seems to have cut down on the number of spam users registering.

Good work Adam.
Thanks for continually using your time to keep the forum going.
Bit of a bummer that we are back down to 400 though.

No worries Damian. I expect the number to go to below 100 once I get rid of all the spam users.
