    Hi gamesforum,

    You are partially correct. However, we have tried most of the prevention methods and they do not work mainly because they have already been compromised such as RECaptcha etc. However, we do have something we are working on to stop the spam in the future, until then we are manually deleting the accounts one by one. You probably won't see the spam on the forum for that long. I would say an hour max depending on if we are away from the computer.

    It's official, ASTRO needs to hire a mod to delete all of this spam and ban the users who are doing crap like this post before me...

    That's what Vertigo and myself are here for :). Spam has gotten worse over the past year and there are only limited prevention methods beyond us manually deleting the spam

    This is an issue I see on almost every forum, I think adding in really hard registration questions along with the CAPTCHA should be enough to keep those spam bots away though.

    I'm not banned but I can't add replies in any other forum. Can a mod fix?

    I daresay you need some more moderators that operate in different time zones so that the spam can be cleaned out faster.

    I wanted another set and found this forum in the process. I've tried to be helpful with my knowledge and have had a few questions too and everything was going great so i order an a40 wired setup with extras and even paid a bit extra for shipping and then 24 hours later i get on here to find i've been banned
