We already have one, but they still get through. Nowadays, they pay actual people 1-2 cents per CAPTCHA to get past these for their spam bots.

Wow, it's like they don't have anything to do with their lives. I mean, why try so desperately to spam a kid's forum? They're not winning anything by bothering
us much. :P

Is there anything else you can do to stop them? Maybe ask other owners of vBulletin forums. You shouldn't say it here since the spam people could stick around as guests and read or something.

Well, we have a bunch of different methods in place, and I'm working on others. It really has nothing to do with what the forum is about. They see us as a successful site, so they want their links on it, hoping that we don't detect them. If they are lucky and get undetected, then the search engines wil come on our site and see links to their sites. So, if you ever see anything, always report it.

In the end, if it is actual humans posting spam links, there's nothing much you can do!

Thanks for answering, and you're right. I guess we'll just have to get used to it. -_-

Naw, just make sure to report anything that seems like it might be spam links. The quicker we catch them, the less likely they will try to come back!

Yup, I will. There are also people here that don't actually post spam but have links in their siggies. We report any random post when it comes to those people, right?

Not those, unless the sites are bad... Or, unless they have them in the signatures as spam!

Sorry, by links I meant spam links (I've seen stuff like domino's coupons, wedding dresses, car rental, etc.)
