Are there anything that could be done to prevent those bots from spamming the forum? It's starting to get annoying.

I've seen some other forums that ask you to answer a question related to the artist that someone who was a fan would know, e.g. who is the leader of the group, when you sign up to be a member. This helps minimize spamming.. can't remember if boajjang does this already??

We've been adding more onton the security questions to prevent robotic signing up, however if it's from human being, it's really difficult to prevent. The only way is to delete their posts & account manually- which we are trying out best to do as soon as we see them.
We are asking all of members to help to prevent these bots by reporting them immediately.

We've done this already. That's why spam bots have got reduced by a lot. It was out of control before.

I installed some new software that will hopefully block most of the spam bots. Let's hope this fixes it. :)

Agreed, I think it's time to take the board down and clean up the mess...and maybe think about getting something more secure >.>

There's gotta be something we can do. They just keep coming and coming... I'd love to take some affirmative action but I lack the capabilities haha. I know it'll be cleaned up eventually though, I have faith in the moderators.

Perhaps you can also try to block the emails spam bots use to sign up. Somehow spam bots uses the same email address provider which looks suspicious to me. :mellow:

I've just deleted all of the spam posts I can find.

We're trying the best we can at the moment. If you go to the bottom of the main forum page, you can see how many spammers our forum software has blocked already. We've blocked over 22,000 spammers since late November. Unfortunately, a few slip through the cracks. I've found that most of the spam comes from a small number of users, which makes it easier for us to figure out who the spammers are and delete their posts. We just need to delete all posts made by that user.

In the meantime, please use the report button to report the post or user profiles of the spammers you see. It helps the moderators figure out who the spammers are so we can suspend them and delete their posts.

I've been taking care of it. I will block 'em as soon as I see them. Don't worry and please hit that 'Report' button when you see a spam.
Thanks.
