  • [SUGGESTION] How to get rid of the bots on these forums

    Recently, I've been reporting spammers more often on a couple various threads (mainly the "Your Accepted Daily Challenges" one, which got locked yesterday), and I thought of a suggestion that might fix it.

    Simply put, add the Recaptchas that were on the Main NK site forums to here.

    With the help of modding, I can test a DC with bloon rank changes. If you want me to test your DC just shoot me a PM.
    Everything you need is here.

    I think they should only add the Recaptchas for when you sign up, as having to do it every time you want to post will get very, very annoying.

    This should still solve the issue

      Ugh, another one of those appeared.

      NK really needs to implement something against them...

        For now just make sure to keep reporting this whenever you see it (It really does help)

        As for how to put a hard stop to stuff like this, we're looking at options but there's only so much that can be done.

          I remember that when the archive forums were under the HTML archive (instead of www), there weren't any bots at all. So it means that if this forum is getting a HTML of Archive, there won't be bots?

            But how, if the Flag option doesn't work?

              Does that always happen? Flags have been coming through OK.

                  What browser are you using and can you try another browser? Are you behind a VPN or do you have anything that would block certain connections?

                    I always use Chrome - tried other browsers too, not a solution.

                    I've been able to flag posts fine in the past, then all of sudden (December), this error began appearing.

                        I guess it works, except I get the error instead of a sign saying that the post was successfully reported.

                          Interesting,
                          can you make a video of that happening please?

                            If only I had YouTube, maybe I could show it.

                            Aaron said he got a flag report from me, but when I flagged the post, I clearly remember getting the error I posted above.

                            But well, I guess case solved as I thought I never actually flagged the posts.
