*dies laughing* I have to give one of them credit for creativity in getting around the limits. Pickle enlargement! Really! :lol:

Yeah.... I just banned Italy, window, pickle, and a bunch of german words that seemed to happen a lot :P Oh, and enlargement. I can't believe I haven't had to ban that one earlier!

Is there any way to make it harder for someone to sign up to the site? As I've obviously haven't tried to register lately, maybe you have some sort of captcha mechanism it will stop spammers from being able to register in the first place. Seeing the number of birthdays today I figure you've got a trunk load of new users signing up each day.

Yeah... I have a Captcha, but it's not keeping people out >< The mod I used to use, which asks a question like "what color is the sky" worked pretty well, but it's all bugged out with the new forum version >< Hopefully I can update that, though, and fix this silly user issue.

Actually, it's been a few months since I checked on that mod... lemme go do that now ^^

Hmm, apparently I need to completely update the forums in order to maybe get the Q&A working >< I think I'm going to put it off for a while ^^;
