Not yet anyhow ;) I still need to do the whole forum code upgrade from 3.3 to 3.4... put it off, as I got some issues to deal with on MGS.

I just saw a No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA v2 hook built for IPB 3.4. (thats the new re-invented widget by google to stop bots)

Hows our spam signup situation lately? I'll admit I dont monitor that aspect very well (not as closely as I monitor it on MGS). Is it bad?

About 3 months ago we started getting 40 spam accounts a day, that just let up a week or so ago to half a dozen a day.  It goes in cycles.  It'll get back to getting 30-50 spam accounts a day soon.  I review every new account that is not caught by the system and flag the spammers I find.  It is letting some spammers through but I come in every morning and do a little lead farming.

Ok. The bot hits to MGS have been on the serious rise lately, but none get through to spamming the forums because of how different signup is on MGS (the forums route through account signup, which is entirely different than bots know how to deal with on IPB setups). But it doesnt mean they dont come in and try and cause lots of 'failure logs' to occur on the backend that I monitor.

I guess MGS is gaining more momentum to start getting on bot radars. Which is a good thing, AND a bad thing.

I was curious how the current mood of bots were here, and thanks for reporting in! I definitely will try to get No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA working when I upgrade the forum code. It truly is a much nicer and more bot thwarting widget. Easier on humans too.

My admin job has been much much easier because of them.  It is like having a big can of raid and everybody is sprayed coming in causing only the cockroaches to die.

Might not want to eat too many of those. They're apparently covered in Raid.

It seems all of IMG is on iso, and not utf8. So uhm ... please ignore 'garbage characters' you may see on any of the feed data from MacGameStore. MGS is up to date on character encoding, so it has some high level stuff that just doesnt translate on these older sites.

I dont think I will ever upgrade the img server, as that was a nightmare of a task to do for MGS... I just dont want to go through it again, especially probono ;)
