Re: Suspecting RC1 very soon!

For a default system, I still believe the best system IS the CAPTCHA. If Admins want something more, they should install additional modules/MODs to protect their board. Many small boards may not need anything extra. The arguement has been made that a default captcha is probably a better choice than...

Re: Suspecting RC1 very soon!

:D Normally I don't quote entire messages except when it's a point by point response Here I have to say you've just provided a hint to spamming systems: try registering, you're shown an image; now just google, find the same image and use the corresponding words. I was not aware that you could google...

Besides Rotsblok, I thought you would have seen it already on the pre-release page.

Re: Suspecting RC1 very soon!

No way to release a default set of questions/answer If you used the image approach the only question would be “What do you see in the image”? You could then set up the phpbb logo as the default. Or you could use captcha as a default and offer Image and response as an option. Under the consideration...

Re: Suspecting RC1 very soon!

Thank you for the thought out response, I disagree with some of your points but my better half says I have to wait until tomorrow for a n in depth response. :) Btw I realize that it is too late for inclusion in 3.0 or maybe even 3.2. But if it works as I think it will, trying it as a mod first will ...

Re: Suspecting RC1 very soon!

Really? Thing is, question and answer approaches have these major problems: [*] no way to release a default set of questions/answer If you used the image approach the only question would be “What do you see in the image”? You could then set up the phpbb logo as the default. Or you could use captcha...

Re: Suspecting RC1 very soon!

Nope, this would work for individual forums, but not for a standard distribution. The reason is quite simple: all bots would "know" the answers for all the default questions about a week after its release. But if it was configurable so admins could change the images to their own, in a very simple m...

Re: Suspecting RC1 very soon!

:D Thank you

Just one question, "What do you see in the image?” - Infinite answers, with each forum being able to set their image and their correct answer.

Re: Suspecting RC1 very soon!

A generic challenge question (What do you see in the picture) that has an unlimited number of responses and is adaptable to each forum would give as many possible responses as there are forums. You can make your image and response as simple or as complex as you like. As long as the Admin is able to...
