31 PAGES of new/inactive Users

Post by joeschmoe »

I have been using phpbb 3.X since it's release..I am currently using 3.04 and waiting for 3.06 to be released before I update my board.

However, I just checked my inactive users and found 31 PAGES of them. I cleared out a gazillion of these inactive users about a month or so ago and now I have 31 more pages of them...I have CAPCHA enabled and also a "special" field (Input your City and State) to reduce these inactive/new users.

Is there anything else I can do to stop these from trying to register to my site???

A "special field" doesn't help unless a specific answer is required. See the spam sticky topic at the top of this forum.
