I've added a new field in the member profile (the bit where you enter your location and stuff; click the UCP button at the top of the forum, then "Profile" in the menu on the left). I've done this as a measure against spam-bots, that is, automatic programs that join forums with the sole intention of posting links to porn or commercial sites. Basically, adding a mandatory custom field to profiles prevents a lot of them from completing registration. I won't say what it is here, where anyone can find out and take measures against it, but it's up to existing members whether they want to complete it or not. New members have to complete the field in order to register.

I've also requested a modification to the visual confirmation image on registration, as programs are getting better at recognising the numbers and letters, no matter how disguised they are. This has now been installed on all hostingdelivered forums, which is nice.
