Re: [Rant] $&!%* Re-Captcha!

our forum uses phpbb, i have tried to add mods to it to help prevent more spam but they all take too long. i wanted to use re-captcha since it does a better job at fooling the bots but it doesnt work right now. it'll show captchas for a bit then it won't be there at all.

ive personally just resulted in to banning entire IP blocks (not just single IPs) of the ones that actually post something once they get through.

Add ZBBLOCK to your php based forum. It is amazing.

You aren't kidding lol. I noticed a huge performance boost in page load times once I put it in and I only put it in on the ucp and viewtopic pages. It may of been something else though that caused the boost in page load times on the forum. Sometimes our server for some unknown reason uses up like 99% of 8GB of ram and I know it can't be anything I am running.

It's not 100% accurate but you can see some server info here: »www.akaskriller.com/phpsysinfo/i···=dynamic
