That's cool, but what if they're the kind who don't really trust emailing people? I used to be like that.  :scared:

Then you'd be a good person to answer my questions on that topic.  Why did you distrust emailing people more than registering for a forum?  Is there any comment I could put there that would be reassuring to such people?

Has has some interesting info. Option #4 seems pretty reasonable to me. Also, It looks to me like we're still running version 1.1.10 and they're talking about a version 2.x in there... Then there's links to puzzles and captchas, etc, which may or not be something we could add.

Seem's we're not the only ones having problems. I know other big boards fight spam with pure man power - appointing many admins to keep up all day long. Too damn bad there has to be bad apples out there! I bet these buggers make more money than all of us combined too!

EDIT: This could possibly be of interest too: http://www.smfhacks.com/

For now the manual approval is quite manageable.  But I may come back to this if it gets to be a pain.

Well I don't get in here that much.  I was going to do my game in SGDK, but a lot of things have happened since I was going to start doing that.  I may not use it at all in the future, but I would like to keep tabs on what's going on in here.  So hopefully you won't delete my account :-)
