Bots applying to WNx
A way to combat the influx on bots applying

How hard would it be to implement one of those random number/letter devices that are made to keep bots from applying to various things? It appears like somebody is slightly angry with WNx and this might be able to stop all of the bots by putting one of those in with the signup just to make sure it's not a bot.

We're discussing ways to fix it. The thing you're referring to is called, "Captcha".

Captcha that's it I forgot the name of it. I just thought it would help reduce the bot influx. I just didn't know the pricing of adding in that feature.

Captcha itself is free. I thought we had this implemented but apparently not. I'm sure they will come up with a solution soon.

I thought we had a captcha, either way it's settling down now. Was starting to get annoying deleting all the accounts.

We have captcha already. Just go look at the signup page.

WNxWhiteWolf said there was a release recently of a captcha-reading library that's capable of reading our particular CAPTCHAs.

Hopefully getting a quick fix by requiring more fields. (Primary Game selected, WNx at the start of the username, etc). It's not going to solve the problem, we'll need a new library soon. But the site update is planned for in a couple of months. So hopefully requiring the other fields will stop some. It's roughly 50-60 a day right now. :(

I delete these bots every hour. So we could survive until website update.

Not sure where to post this but there was an ad for ffxiv bot show up on the mobile forums that was flagged by my phones antivirus. Evidently it covered the login button (size of the ad). Also should note my phone has a cracked screen so I might have hit in my daze of sleep.
