All I saw was the cheezy built-in verification image, never worked well for me.

Do tell oh wise one, do tell!

I have the stopforumspam, didn't use akismet, didn't know it was available for SMF.  Thanks Omid!

The one I have been using lately is Stop Spammer and KeyCaptcha http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=1547
http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=2839

They seem to work pretty well.  I like keeping the email activation on though.
...meh.

KeyCaptcha is a good looking mod, I've seen it being used in some other popular sites, but I want to make it easier for new members to join and pass fewer step getting their account active.
Good thing I've had no spammer in my forum yet, just two over a year in the old system and nothing over last week in this new one.
Over the last week StopForumSpam.com blocked about 50 spmmers, CloudFlare blocked about 2k treats in my site (don't know how many were for Forum) and since StopForumSpam and CloudFlare took care of stuff, there was no spammer here to post something Akismet Block.

That's awesome! My stopforumspam seemed to have a hiccup one time and I started getting a lot.  I'm not sure what happened, but the software seemed to still be working.

So, I added the keycaptcha and that has prevented any new spammers from registering.

One problem though was when I was doing a spammer check, I think I accidentally deleted Bob's account...

He hasn't said anything or tried to re-register, but I hope he will!
...meh.

Omid Farhang

Send him a PM and explain him what happened, he is a good man and he understands.
