Yes, there's a CAPTCHA thing, but it's not enough against spammers and spambots :(
I've read that it's possible to activate the e-mail validation on the PhpBB forums, but I'm not sure that it will be enough :(

Sorry for the double-posting here.

I think it would be a good idea if we were able to put avatars in our forum profiles. I didn't find the option in the control panel, so I think the option is not activated.

by the way, i saw the links to your facebook and twitter profiles on the homepage, how about google+?

there is a rather empty g+-account with your name and picture, any plans on posting there, too?

otherwise it would probably make not much sense that i've just added it to my circles ;).

Good point. I've got the account. I just haven't started using it yet. My online life is so fractured as it is, it's hard to imagine having the time to do it all. I'll get there eventually, promise. :)

I gotta agree with this, mostly because I find it's easier to identify fellow posters at a glance by their avatars. I know some people don't want the extra graphic load, but there are usually options to turn avatars off in individual viewing settings, I think. Also, there can be a limit of size and type of graphics, for instance no moving icons.

I agree that small avatars make quick identification of individual posters easier, and as long as the size is restricted doesn't get annoying.
(Although it can be confusing for a while if one of the regulars changes their avatar...)

I can tell you that in the administration controle panel there are options that deal with avatars.
Let me check to see that a) I have enough permissions to make some changes and b) that Bear is OK with that ;).

I'd love to have avatars! I just haven't figured out how yet...

Sorry I've been AWOL from the forum for a while. I've been up to my neck finishing up three major projects at once, and just didn't get a chance to check in. I'm happy to come back and see that things are still cooking here. :)
