    Hey all,

    Anyone who’s been on the site this past week has probably noticed we’re getting a lot more spam than usual. Sometimes this just happens, but I try to delete it as soon as I see it or someone reports it.

    However, I’m looking into adding a captcha to the registration process, which won’t stop all spammers but should at least stop the bots. I’ve used captcha before so I know it’s not too hard… the hard part right now is just finding the time to research and implement. So please bear with me; it WILL be added as soon as I’m able. Meanwhile thank you to everyone who reports spam posts! You guys are awesome.  😎

    Yes, captcha will help and is a good idea.  Three cheers for Commander, who has volunteered to do battle with the army of bots!   😛

    It’ll be as epic battle as Battle of the Five Armies in Hobbit xd Just replace bots as the orcs

    Lols. For my sake, I hope it’s nothing that extreme. 🙃

    Don’t worry. It’s safe to open. Lol. That’s only a screenshot of what I received. It’s not a link.

    Now I’m 2^2048% sure about it due to the fact I received exactly same message.
