Simon, I think you need to fix your registration settings, ^^^^^^^^^^^^ sounds like a bot post.

The one I like to use is a Q&A, is seams to stop the spambots dead.
You basically add 4 or 5 questions that anybody registering with your forum would be able to answer.

What is the name of this game.
What does DK stand for.
What are the bots in the game called.
etc etc

The user only has to answer one, but it seams to really stop the influx of bots either registering or posting.

If you want to add it in.
In PHPBB3 in the ACP, under the General Tab, Board Configuration "Spambot Countermeasures"
"Available Plugins" - Select "Q&A"
Press "Configure"
Press "Add"

Type the question, and below that type in all the acceptable answers, one on each line.

For example
Q: What are the bots in the game called.
A:
IMP
IMPBOT
I.M.P Bot

Hope that is of some use and I'm not overstepping my bounds - sorry if I am.

Cheers

Mark

That's actually set up now. The problem is, the spammers are people.

It somewhat amuses me that this thread is constantly spammed.
