Removed SPAM, Added registration captcha

Deleted a bunch of "faked" users. If I accidentally deleted you username, please forgive me, it is hard to distinguish quickly.

Re: Removed SPAM, Added registration captcha

Deleted a bunch of users, who hasn't been logged in since before 2011 and 0 posts.   (all unverified users)

If I accidentally deleted your username, do forgive me but you had it coming, I doubt you will never even read this, after 6 years of no-show.

I'm planning of deleting more users, who hasn't been logged in since before 2012 and 0 posts in the next phase.

Re: Removed SPAM, Added registration captcha

Cleaning up spam-accounts and non-active accounts is now done. We went from 29k users -> 3k users.  Sorry to burst the bubble.  These was accounts which never posted once. It was a tedious work I tell you all, to remove them. No smooth sql.

Together with captcha and presentation needed,  the spammers is down to almost zero.  The forum is nice and clean again.

My wish is that this will make old time gurus come back to us again and the level of discussion will increase.

...and yes,  the tone to newcomers is still the same. Learn the tools of the trade the hard way. +Fravia

Well done iceman!
I don't recall a time where the forums have been as well maintained as they are today.

Re: Removed SPAM, Added registration captcha

in the cleaning up process, the time has now come to removing banned accounts.   This made us go from 3000 -> 1950 users.

There has been some spam accounts created. With 1 spam post in 5 months tells us that we are doing it right.
