Hello,

 

i just registered my account on this forum, as I didnt get an answer on my email to contact@getpaiint.net :-(

 

I am wondering about the need of 3 different kinds of captcha to tell if the user is really human or not?

 

Greetings Wolfgang

Because spam is nearly uncontrollable even as it is. With three CAPTCHAs we moderators are still banning spammers 5-10 times a day. With fewer than that, it gets even worse.

Trust me, we didn't do this lightly. I'd love to be able to get rid of some. But we're a very popular forum with precisely zero paid staff, so we have to do what we can.

Hello david,

considering your point of view it seems to be logical ;-)

But it was the first time i met a website having so many captchas.

 

Hello EER,

 

i dont know if you read the content of the mail? I just didnt want to have another forum have my login data an mail adress.

 

Greetings

Wolfgang

Be thankfully you only have three capthas to get through. One forum I was on had the first three posts vetted by the mods as well. Only then did you have full access.

New users have restricted posting ability until they reach a certain post count. They are flagged as "Newbies" under their avatar. Once the post count is reached they are promoted to "Members" group.

This makes spam easier to deal with by restricting how many forums it will appear in.
