Due to recent spambot activities I've done some minor changes in registration and posting rules:
  • Newly registered users will have to be activated not by their own e-mail, but by an administrators of WW board;
  • Maximum links per page allowed now will be 3 instead of unlimited;
  • Updated Q&A at registration.
Also, I've deleted all inactive users (those who haven't activated their profiles, not those who haven't been on-line for a long time), all profiles which were registered after 2013-11-21 (three pages of 0 post spambots) and all of those who have registered, activated their profiles but haven't logged in in forums for at least 1 time.

I tried to avoid deleting any known users, but if I did - sorry for that (that was not intentional or anything personal) and feel free to re-register!

Hi Zivs...GOOD WORK!!!

I tried to delete a bunch the other day but ran out of time..lol How did they get in? Did they find a new loophole?

Also would updating the forums help at all...we are not running to the latest version. Not sure what improvements were made on the current to the new...

K did some reading on the new release....it looks like this will help us due to the fixes relate mostly tot he bot/spam stuff....

We are pleased to announce the release of phpBB "Richard 'D¡cky' Foote" 3.0.12. This version is a maintenance release fixing various bugs but not adding any new features. We have updated the list of bots/spiders, further improved compatibility with recent PHP versions, and support MySQL fulltext search on InnoDB for those MySQL versions which provide it. The custom BBCode token LOCAL_URL has been modified to operate closer to its description. If you have any custom BBCodes using the token you should test if the custom BBCode still functions correctly or if you need to replace the token with the new RELATIVE_URL token. Moderators are no longer exempt from post approval, instead the permission "Can post without approval" is applied as it is for all other users. We now reject very long password inputs immediately to save on resources during password checks.

We urge you to update your installation as soon as possible. Our support team will only support phpBB 3.0.12, updates to phpBB 3.0.12 and conversions to phpBB 3.0.12. Submissions to our trackers for older versions will not be accepted, please make sure you update before you submit a bug report.

If you use a language pack other than the default "English [GB]", you should check our downloads section, an update may already be available.

Upgrading forum would be a good idea, but I guess you should poke around Ringo for that. All I can do is deal with consequences (bots, spam, etc) :)

Forum upgrade plus NuCaptcha anti-bot system seem to have helped. Yay! For a while we're spam-bot free!
