Someone needs to tell them that a bunch of their letters are backwards and smushed together. Maybe Russian people wouldn't talk so funny if someone informed them of that. ???

I actually like the look of cyrillic.

This one's not too bad translated, but good lord if you translate the whole post?!

There's a silly amount of spam now.

And I have to say, these being the "official" boards, it makes the company look more than a little unprofessional.

There seriously needs to be first-post auto-moderation or some improved way of blocking the creation of spam accounts. CAPTCHA doesn't really work anymore.

I assure you, speaking on behalf of the moderators anyway, that we're doing the best we can to keep up with it. It's been a big problem, no doubt, and we're definitely keeping busy with it to say the least. Your patience is appreciated, of course- there's only so many of us, with so much time to spend here in addition to day jobs and other commitments- sometimes we can't get to it as soon as it's posted, but we do our best anyway.

The sad part? You should see how many we've bagged before they even post in addition to what you HAVE seen...

I do appreciate it! Normally a spam post is gone within the hour after I report it.

But there's working hard, and there's working smart. There's got to be a way that both locks out the spammers and reduces the workload, neh?

Simple Machines has a ton of mods out for it, surely one of them might be useful?

Also, SMF 2.0 has verification questions for registration, which can be set to gaming or Shadowrun related subjects. I've seen at least one mod that adds them to SMF 1.1.7.

I have been a mod at a few other large forums and the thing that I found killed alot of the spam bots is using the 5 post count confirmation ability. 

Its a setting in the Admin section that states that every member must confirm they are not a bot for 5 posts then it goes away.  Spam bots usually just sign up, confirm, then try to make a single post.  The secondary confirmation kills its ability to do make the post.
I would like to second this idea.

I'm not so sure it would work. This morning I saw a spam message and there was a response to that spam message by another spammer.

I think what happens is if two spammers come in with the same Subject line, the second spammer's got code to reply to it instead of creating a new post.

Soon the spam bots will create there own forums for spam and we won't have to deal them.
