xx My forum is inundated with new member requests
« Thread started on: Feb 13th, 2018, 6:02pm »

I have my forum http://thekennedys.conforums3.com set so I approve members. In the last two weeks I am getting spammed by 25-50 member requests per day. Most user names end with "ix", various IP addresses which I block, but I'm afraid I'm blocking legit requests. What can I do about this?

I probably have another 50 sitting there to delete from just two days.

I have put some measures in place to stop some of the spam membership accounts.. We'll have to monitor the applications coming to your board and see what changes.

The problem is, all the accounts being opened are being done by real people so it's hard to filter out the spam.. :/
