Right now the current version for this forum is 3.0.8 which is a pretty outdated in terms of computer time (Jakob updated it a couple years back). The one we're going to have on the new forum will be running the latest version 3.0.12 which was released in September.
As for the Q&A Captcha program I'll definitely use that on the new forum. We've just been using the various stock Captcha's, including an additional registration question, but that has since become no use.
I work nights so when I get home I almost always check the site first thing and usually
right before I leave so I try
to get rid of the spam as soon as possible.
Again if the new forum (I'll have it up before the next SA album
) does continue to get plagued with spam I'll consider some moderators, especially if the guys got more activity going on with touring and a new album.
