It looks like the bots are back again...

A suggestion to prevent it would be make registration via invites only.

It would prevent bots from registering and the inconvenient users too. Additionally, we will know who sent the invite to some user who is posting illegal links, flooding, etc.

I don't agree with the invite system... For example, when I first found this forum, I didn't know anyone here, how could I join?

We can keep the registration open, but there are antibot solutions out there.

Yeah, antibot solution like write captcha or something like that will be enough

Didn't we have the registration process include a question such as "Finish this sentence: Leave the World ______"

I swear I remember testing it earlier this year to see how the spamming problem was solved; so yeah it definitely seemed to work.

As for possible mods. Didas, Hardsoul, Vinelli? And if we were to make an Axwell Forum Podcast section, make it so that only moderators have permission to post in there (will avoid new members accidentally posting in there and making it messy). Vinelli would then be able to post topics for new episodes in this section.

Great to be back, it looks even better than before! Thanks to everyone that made it possible :). That being said, Own AFP section would be immense. Also really digging Didas his idea about a page were you can see all new post of the day. But mainly an own AFP page would help keep things organized. Also cant wait till Im home and get this catdog pic replaced haha
