CAPTCHA, filters and moderation. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Here are few ideas to eliminate the spam in the forums.

    a) You can add CAPTCHA to posts that are made more than once.

    b) You can automatically filter posts that are made more than once and send them to moderation.

    c) Let the users filter posts based on a certain word or regex to make them show only once and maybe a number to indicate that this post has duplications.

    I'm sure that there are more ways to handle it but these are few ideas that I thought to share because the spam is getting annoying. :)

    The moderators here are doing an outstanding job, unfortunately it's not enough because the user experience is still affected and it takes time for them to clean it out.

    So hopefully, these suggestions or something else will be implemented to make this forum a better place.


    Regards,
