Spam : Which Q&A was used?

Post by neca »

Hello,

Here using a 3.2.11 phpBB, and still working on a convenient antispam solution.
After many hours reading here what could be best, it appears the Q&A seems efficient.
So I'm starting to write a ton of Q&A.

If some questions are too easily defeated by spammers, is there a place (obvious in the web gui, or hidden in the DB) where I'll be able to find out which question was answered once the spammer got through?

Thank you.

That approach, as you are finding, is full of problems. If a Q&A gets broken you have no idea which question has been broken which means that you have to replace them all.

Best, and tried and tested, method is to have one good, non searchable, question then if it does get broken you know exactly where the problem is.

Mmm too bad this is not a feature.
I was asking that because I thought something like this was already in the code.

Well, I guess I'll have to keep a supply of available questions, and use them as time goes by.

Thank you David.

Uh, if you put the questions in the code, I would think they'd be broken pretty fast, no?
