Forum spam
#2
So far I have not found any way to improve the controls. The registration process is robust (Captcha, email confirmation) so I don't really understand how so many are getting though. All I can do is manually block them.

I have been using the control panel (again, manually) to look at registrations and block obvious fake accounts. There are also some email hosts that I have blocked from being used to create accounts for obvious repeat offenders.

It seems that a lot of spammers are wise to the ways of MyBB and other major forum players, we were lucky with yellowtopia that it was so small it flew under the radar of most of this crap.

Anyway, I shall continue to monitor support forums etc for ways to prevent spam. I have registered us with stopforumspam.com and will be installing their plug-in soon. That allows you to report spam and hopefully block spammers that have been reported by other forums.

Bear with, and hopefully things will improve as we get to grasps with this brave new world!
