No, I'm pretty sure I can only change the address of the HTML page I get the template from. At least, I can't find any other option in the AdminCP.

Someone should PM AlienCC or Jbirk to see what they can do or a time Arcane and one of them could get together to implement and test this idea, because I'd hate to see this idea go to waste. I see that their was spam left in the topic "PM Storage Upgraded". <The battle continues>

AlienCC said he did something about spambots about a week ago, but apparently it didn't work because there goes another one.

I know another forum where they did something like this. No bots posted in the trap though.

Since we don't appear to be rid of spambots, what's everyone's opinion on the following:

We make a new member group of "people who haven't posted yet" (call it something like New Members) that everyone gets automatically moved out of after one post.
If you're in that group, you're not allowed to post in the Announcements forum.

Granted, this might suck for someone who created an account to reply to one of our announcements, but has that ever happened? Besides, they would then either post something about it elsewhere or PM a staff member who could fix it manually - problem solved.

Todlangweilig brought up an interesting point: The spambots consistently
use as their post icon. Could this be used as a flag/filter of some sort?

My own solutions still seems the most reliable and accurate, but failing that Sir Robin's would do best.

That would be lovely, but it requires someone actually writing some code instead of being lazy and just messing around in the AdminCP Sad

Some of the posts also had a smiley as the first part of the message. Perhaps we could use it in combination with various profile info: private email, no posts, recently registered, and a lack of info in the 'information' box (ie Homepage, Birthday, etc) to help reduce false positives.

I was recently on a forum where, upon looking in registration, there was a question that said "Are you a spam bot? o Yes o No"

I doubt that worked Dry

Or maybe is there a way to time how long they take to enter their infos...

Like if they are a bot it will be almost instantaneous, but for a human it will take about 1 minute.

Well, we've implemented a method for blocking spambots, we'll see how it goes?
