hopefully stopped the spam bots

Postby Yoshi » Mon Jan 17, 2011 3:25 pm

Long story short, I have no idea what I'm going to do about this forum. Every attempt to update it ends in the update crashing and half fucking up the DB. The newest version of phpbb3 has anti spam stuff that makes things much simpler. For now, I tried 2 new ways to keep spammers out and it *should* work. If not, I need to find a way to port us over to the newer version.
