I actually do get it, but my point was that the community as a whole could help decrease the spamming. I've seen spam threads stay up for quite a while because never notice it. How do you know that new members will automatically know how to report someone? You actually would be surprised of how many people don't know that.

We have rather moved on to that as a topic, rather then watching them post, no, no. We are trying to stop them before or durring the time they sign up. Not have tons of trash threads thrown everywhere.

But it might help if mone of the more active members were a mod...then threads could go bye bye easier and quicker.
The thing with 'Type a mon's name', is that people can set up a bot to type 'Pikachu' every time they want to sign up. With a verification image (as Ttar suggested), it changes every time, so the people can never assign a bot to it.

*Tons of curses here*

What the well, they can do that? Hmmm...then I guess I agree with the picture thing. But please, make it words that N00bs can't read.

A good way to prevent spammer-bots is to make it so they have to type an image verification code. The "type the word Desk" thing at the beginning that I got when registering has already been cracked.

For actually people spamming, the best thing you can do is have good active staff there.
If you remember, there is a thing like that when you sign up; a random question is generated. Mine was 'What does Charmander evolve into?' And you type the answer into the little box, so that's nothing different than what you suggested other than it's slightly more difficult if you don't know much about Pokemon and are joining to learn more. But nothing is stopping you from Googling 'Charmander'...
But the Captcha idea might work, because those darn things stump me and I am not a robot.
