Wouldn't be a solution, real C&C players need to register (although we haven't had many new members for a while).

The admins just need to start doing something.. DvD said that he'll leave installing a better protection system to Python (if I remember correctly), who also hasn't done anything roll.gif

yea but Python is probably fairly busy himself not to mention the fact that they too see the inactivity of the place and probably don't feel as if it should be updated unless something is actually happening here.

I just had a crazy idea

How about making it even easier for bots to register here, while going sure to recognize them automatically (using the latest security system to prevent bots).
Then install some kind of C&C browser game and allow each full member of that forum (100 Posts or more; 1 month active or longer) to kill/delete these bots in the browser game. The browser game does nothing else than moving them in a special "crap forum" where a mod admin can easyly delete them and no other member can view the bots posts/topics.

That would make these bots actually usefull and with each member being able to play the game, the bots won't stay for long.

Some kind of ranking system could be established: "who has killed the most bots this month/year/of all time" "whose reaction time was the fastest" etc
The information could then be shown in the profile too.

Just an idea but don’t most bots post after they register so why not make people wait a set time after registering (for example 12 hours) a human "bot" poster wont want to wait that long and some bots may not understand the wait. perhaps there could be things members could do to reduce this time or there could even be questions to do so

All these suggestions are all a bit too far out there to be honest, just do the upgrade, it'll make life easier for everyone except the bots.

Thanks for the heads-up Nyerguds, i downloaded the latest release just now, i'll ask Python to install it asap..

..alternatively i'd do it myself, but i've never done it before. And 2.3.6 -> 3.0.5 seems like a rather big jump Oo

Please contact me on msn if you need me for anything, thanks.
