Feature Mitigation Of Low Quality Users...

    I'm not going to go into the details of *how* it's being done for obvious reasons, but you should notice that less users new registrations should be happening now.

    This is because we are blocking users attempting to register that are most likely what would end up being a low quality user. So hopefully we'll see a lot less people posting stuff that that copy/pasted or just posting gibberish/nonsensical stuff.

    Thanks you very much! At least we'll have only the most clever of those, the ones who can use a VPN or public proxy :)

    Thank you Shawn, Really It is amazing, A few days earlier entire Buy, Sale and Marketplace area was getting filled with crappy threads by spammers. Now, since last 2 days marketplace is very clean and hygienic. We are getting only quality threads from genuine members.

    And, It is just a beginning, soon we will be witness of a new history

    Regards

    How are you going about doing that? Are you blocking people who have already have their accounts banned from signing up again...?

    This is a great feature, the quality of this forum seems very good (from what I've seen) so far anyway so I wouldn't worry about having to decrease the amount of spammers because the genuine and quality members seem to far outweigh those low quality ones.
