We're aware, thanks. We have recently restricted access to the memberlist, member profiles and the Who Is Online list for guests and bots. So these links will no longer be helpful to these users/spambots for link building.Random American wrote: ↑Tue Mar 03, 2020 3:57 pmI don't know if this is a big problem, but I do notice that some Newly Registered Users fill out their profiles with commercial information that has nothing to do with phpbb, nor do their sites have phpbb forums or anything phpbb related. It seems to me like some are trying to turn their profiles on this site into advertisements without having to post anything.
We do try to adapt to the spambots as much as we can and regularly change the CAPTCHA. Yet we've recently discovered that there are videos on the internet that recommend human spammers to register to this board and put their profiles full of spamlinks (which as I said above is kind of useless now), so there's only so much we can do to keep these users out when they're all humans.
