  • What 3 guitar questions should we ask to block spammers joining

    Maybe being able to answer 3 simple guitar related questions before being given membership would be a smart idea. Then at least we would only be spammed by guitarists

    good luck...I have offered t oprescreen applicants to no avail. I guess even spammers count as 'traffic'

      Spammers are now contributing about 8% of all new threads on the forums, most new members that sign up and contribute to the forums are spammers, e.g. latest 10 new members, 6 non posters, 4 spammers ...
      it's about time spammers get their own signature forum, this will boost traffic considerably.

            ​I doubt that any screening based on factual questions would be very effective, because answers could easily be found on the internet, but if you decide to do it, I kind of like catscurlyear's questions.

              It has been very very slow here to say the least.
