New, stricter controls added to joining NTN

exclamation New, stricter controls added to joining NTN

Hello members (and guests),

a couple of weeks ago I added two filters
to joining Not The Noobs as members:

1) I deleted the One-All Social Log-in, which means
     prospective  members (genuine or fraudulent)
      will no longer be able to use various social media
      platforms for joining;

2) I increased the complexity level of the CAPTCHA
     security, in order to throw off-piste bots.

Thus far these measures seem to have had
a positive impact, for the regular stream of
fraudulent 'members' has stopped, for now.

Hello all,

on checking today I had twenty-five requests
to join the forum: not a single one of them
was a genuine one, with several having
duplicate accounts using the same IP address
and a few having already been reported elsewhere
as fraudulent.

At this rate our forums will never grow, as it is
my duty to reject all such requests.

If you have a moment, please share our forum
with others you trust, and maybe that way
we may grow a little bit.

Thank you

And a good job you have been doing in keeping this forum genuine and respectable! Thank you! :)

I would do so willingly but I don't know any other traders. I keep my trading very private and in that sense I am bit of a hermit! But it certainly would be nice to see some new people here, beginners or otherwise...
