Naw. I have the current cvs running in my test board. My testers are still skeptical, so waiting is not a problem.

I feel that now it's more of the tidy up stuff (other then fixing annoying bugs that suvived the nukings from developers :P), so hopefully not long

I was wondering if they would consider a "two page" registration?

There would be a picture challenge on the first page (a pic of a very famous person in history), and an admin-configured math equation on the second...

If the bot doesn't get the pic challenge, it doesn't advance to the second.

Maybe even a "dedicated" email specification? The Registrant would be directed to establish an email account with the @yoursite.whatever suffix, with a Confirmation/activation for the dedicated email sent to their normal email addy. And then, they would use only the new, dedicated email addy to register, with the second Confirmation/activation sent to their regular email.

Sure, it's a hassle, but if they really wanted to be there, they should put in some work so they, too, could enjoy a Forum without all the crappy "visitors".

Also, the Stop Spambot Registration v1.0.2 has stopped my bots dead in their tracks...unless they were humans.

They are having technical difficulties. It's been going on and off for a while now. It's not a release.

well, who knows... they 'surprised' us with phpBB.com-prosilver, they’re liable to do anything.

I sure am.. I have been waiting for this to move away from XMB 1.9.2. and every month or so I convert the site from XMB to bb2 then to the latest bb3 snapshot just to stay familiar with the multi-step process. I have it down to a science. Once RC1 is here.. I can happily "forget" how to do this...or just help others... ;)

To be quite honest, I'm not looking too much into the cleaning out of the CVS snapshots. Don't they also do this when they make a major change (like the new CAPTCHA)?

Of course, I could be wrong...
Life's a game. Just very badly programmed.

Isn't that the last major change that the development team was after?
