Once the spambots find us

I think we should set up registrations so that new registrations need to be manually approved. Most sites that use the Q&A human verification process get between 3 and 20 spambot registrations per day. Recaptcha was getting more like 20-50 per day a year ago when we ditched it for Q&A at TR.

Right now, no registration approval is required, which I hope is making it easier for people to come by and check MindRomp out as they hear about us.

Very good idea. StopForumSpam is a good place to check suspicious applications, as you probably already know.

OK so you're thinking it needs to become manual now or very soon? I'll need a postcard explaining what I need to do, if me helping out would help.

not yet, but soon probably. I imagine we'll get our first spambot this week. I'll write up my current bot-hunting today or tomorrow. It's an arms race

I suggest that instead of deleting the first spambot post, it be moved to this thread to commemorate the milestone!
