So, I had a thought about to the spambot that seems to be changing its name slightly to avoid the ban on previous names. I noticed that every incarnation of the name has 'jonn' at the start.

Knowing this, the username registration validation could be modified to return a negative value if the first four letters of the username are jonn.

Which would work... unless someone wanted a character with that name. :p

That wouldn't work, because it's done 'jonny' already.

Also, I found out you can't ban usernames by wildcard, nor can you ban guest names. :p

Not using the admin control panel, no. This would require modification of the query that controls registration. The Ewok will know what I'm talking about :P

Was just a thought though.

Eh, it's a good idea, but considering it'll probably just change its name (not to mention there being other spambots), I don't think it's worth it.

Well, we could so something similar. Sometimes, they're attracted to sites by adbots on members' computers...

So whoever has been going to the naughty sites, please do a bot scan. :p

You know the way they have those 'type in the picture' tests for registration? Why not have it so that a guest posting needs to fill in one?

Honestly, I would sooner just disable guest accounts. But, that's not my call.

Disabling guest accounts wouldn't be such a bad idea. But then that defeats the purpose of the guest forum, so yea.
