My browser has marked the forum and my connection to it, as not fully secure. I thought one of the reasons that Travian moved from Vbulletin to BB, was to improve security?
Also, can something please be done about the constant spam bots? There were approx 100 posts made early this morning, that remained on the forum for several hours and despite assurances from senior crew, nothing appears to be changing in the fight against the bots.
There are many steps that can be taken as captcha alone, is not enough to stop them. Have the following been considered? I think I have suggested similar steps many times before.
1. Returning to manual approval of both new members and their 1st few posts.
2. Preventing new users from making repeated posts in a given amount of time.
3. Deny registration of new users from IP addresses that are known to be spam bots.
4. Use a blacklist register to check new registrations
