Icon 30 Attnmod Upgrade Completed

Okay, gang. We have completed the upgrade. We apologize that this took so long.

Unfortunately, our old host was unresponsive and it took some time to get to the point where we had to switch hosts. We have a new host now and that has enabled us to get the upgrade plugged in.

With that in mind, we're going to turn registrations back on and see what happens.

Hold on tight. This could get hairy.

It works.

We just watched a spam bot try to register, and it failed on three attempts. It's a bot from the same source as the previous spam attacks.

So far, so good. We wouldn't say that means it's totally solved. Unfortunately, there's no way to test that other than to open the doors and see what happens.

But so far, so good. It's an encouraging sign.

When you made that new account, what kind of verification image did you get? There was one, right?

It was the kind with the pretty, but generic captcha.

Alright. It's been open all day and we only had one issue. We'll check back later and see how things are going.

Peace.

Do confirm emails have to be approved by admins, or did you just axe mine before it got sent?

Glad you found it. We never touch those. It's all automatic.

A few bots are still getting through. We're going to shut registrations back down again until we can look at it more.

We've opened a support request with VB to see if they can help.

You don't need new socks. Just wash the old one.

Okay, VB said we should go back to the question and answer settings. That's what we used to be on and we liked those, but we ran out of good questions.

We'll try again.

You could try using these questions I stole from the idiot section of the pre-ACT test site.

If they're too easy, we could always just bump up the difficulty level until they can't figure it out.

We can't do multiple choice. We can probably use something like that to really antagonize the person that is answering for the bots, though.

Like, "Name the person (first and last name) that warned the Colonists that the British were coming."

Paul Revere if anyone wondered.

If you guys want to put together a few questions like that, that'd be helpful.

Be sure to include the answer.



In the next year or so the Internet will start becoming IP6 compliant. We'll be doing that as quickly as possible ourselves. That will make it easier to handle things like these spam bots. The IP system will be a lot better and it'll be easier to just outright block a geographic area from entering the site.

But that's going to take time to integrate across the web.
