    How about redirect new forum joins to the wiki page for three days, most would get tired of reading the documentation and just go away.

    It depends on what sort of captcha. If its a generic one which anyone could do with PHP-GD then yes, they probably would be able to break it. But rotated ones with other parts on the image (as produced by reCAPTCHA) are unlikely to be broken.

    There is such a vbulletin setting that can be changed, but I'm not sure this has prevented much spam on other boards. The 3 day waiting period will probably do much to eliminate most spam.

    It seems that the three day waiting period, combined with the 15 posts with no URLs is what is most effective. Spam bots will wait for minutes, even days, but if they are not allowed to post links, they will give up.

    Cheers,

    Well, streaker69...this will also make the n00bs like yourself utilize the search button and force you to help yourself so the other members wont have to flame ya about not searching first.

    Xploitz: I've known streaker69 for quite some time, and he is not a n00b, keep the safety on, son

    Streaker69: welcome aboard, you could have PM'd me, the 3-day thing (and the 15-post count) can all be changed from the admin panel on request, if the request warrants it of course (so don't y'all noobs start PM'ing me now!).

    Cheers!

    My apologies to you both. I wasn't intending that to be taken like it was. I was trying to say that streaker69 was new to the board, not necessarily new to the Wifi security scene, and this "waiting period" could be utilized to search the board instead of posting questions that have very simple answers to if the n00bs would just use "search" button. I should have made myself more clear by saying n00bs to the board. And yes Mother, my safety is on...awaiting your fire command. Just ask and it shall be done.
