Good news everybody. We managed to change to reCAPTCHA and from now on the board sends registration emails with validation links after registration. That won't stop spam completely, but it is a first big step in our war against the bots

Ah, sweet. That should hold back the floods a lot better.
I note the appearance of a quick reply box too. Avatars next? =)

We're working on it, but something needs to be done on Bear's end (or at least on his server). And as we all know he's a bit swamped with work.
But no worries, I'm keeping my eye on it...

So we are.
So if I tell you now that I'm sending you a virtual hug, you should be able to feel it across the bits and bytes :)

Can you enable externally-hosted avatars without any server fiddling? AFAIK, that should only be necessary for uploaded avatars.
