Really no good sign towards new users when there is such a flood each time :(
Okay, not "each" time but it happens a lot.

It was worse when the forum started. Then it was about 4 times a day. Now its once a week.

I have about 400 ip's banned now (almost all from china).

The spammers use "real" people to circumvent the securities, so there is not a good solution to solve the problem.

The flooding itself must be an automated process. I will look into tricks to prevent this.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

I know that the Kerbal Space Program Forum uses something called "Spam-O-Matic", which according to the forum site at this moment claims:

495511 Spammers Denied Registration

1212 Spammers Permanently Banned

1210 Spammers submitted to StopForumSpam

8146 Spammy Posts Automatically Moderated

Wrong forum, X moon uses the free PHPBB and your suggested addon only works with vBulletin :-(
How ever there is a addon for phpBB called Anti Spam ACP : https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=69&t=1677275, dont know how it makes it safe though.

I still recommend using Q&A when registering, helped me stop spam wars at at least to of the environments ive set up for organizations.

Yep, thanks. I had changed the php, but it does not seem to prevent flooding.

Will have to look into it again.

Well... we have another one...

I'd say "at least it's not a D-DOS"... but I think ta the spam might be more annoying.
