I had lots of spamaccounts on my board, so in the ACP I removed the members from each group.
But I still see them listed at the bottom of the page of my board:
I used the synchronise option and cache option in the ACP. But that didn't help.
Isn't there a list of members somewhere in the ACP? So that I can remove those members permanently?
Deleting them from group will not delete the account. A lot of bots register and never use the account so the best thing to do might be to just leave well enough alone. The closest thing that will get you a list of users is the prune users page on the Users and Groups tab. Set some criteria, for example posts are eqaul to 0 and set a date range. Set the option to at the bottom to deactivate users.

When you hit submit you'll get a list of users that fit that criteria. Unfortunately this next only provides you with their usnerame. You can right click each account and select open in new tab to see details for each account.

Be very careful with this feature if you set it to delete users instead of deactivate because it's not hard to accidentally wipe out legitimate users.

As for the question I changed it, but I think this is difficult, because if the question is too difficult it won't work either.

The question I have is "Type in *someword* without the asteriks." and it seems to work fine.
I decided to delete all users, because they looked all spam to me.
I changed some settings and so far all is good.
