This spamming seems to be an increasing problem.

Does anyone know how other sites deal with it?

I guess they don't have the gold cartel to deal with :lol:

 

On a serious note, other sites built on IP board, have a report button which allows any user to report a post, I guess an admin can enable this. I'm unsure if you're able to quaratine the post until ok'ed by an admin or if an admin has to take action to have it removed.

 

See:

Page 19

 

It also has info on ban word and ban IP, though dynamic IP will means this isn't 100% effective.

 

There is a mod to 2.x.x which centralises reported posts, which is also available in IP board 3.

If it's bots that are posting entering a string from an image upon registration filters this, which is enabled. I think this was broken on IP board for a while, so perhaps there are lurking bots. If this is what you're seeing one option would be to review the accounts which haven't yet posted. You can also prevent new users from posting and/or creating new threads until they meet certain critera on some boards, perhaps IP board supports this too.

I did a quick look for that option but couldn't see it.

 

It would be a good idea.

 

If anyone knows how, can you point us in the right direction ?

 

Sorry, but this week my time is very limited :( :( :(
