Hi, i looked through the previously asked questions and couldn't find an answer to my question, so apologies if it has been asked before

I have a mum and baby board and we've in recent weeks been getting loads of registrations from Russian (i think by the style if the writing) members, they are not genuine users IYSWIM, any way, is there any way of setting the controls so it's admin controlled confirmation?

We have lots of baby and children pic on the board and we obviously need to protect the children

TIA, F x

FrMaRiRoLu, most probably they are spam robots. I suggest that you forbid any activity for Users group, and move all trusted people to Checked group manually.

I don;t think they are TBH, they have email addresses and website addresses, like this

That's very possible that they are spam bots. Spam bots are improved with each moment.
Did you check IP addresses? If all of those 'users' have same IP, you can ban it from site.

Some kind of spam keeps registering about 50 times daily with my site. I keep blocking the IP s and blocking their url but it does not stop them from registering again.
Somebody please help me. How do I stop it? Can I close registration?

blueangel08, forbid activity of users with unconfirmed e-mails (CP -> Users -> Module settings), adjust user group permissions so that Users won't be able to view your site and post at it, and move all trusted members to Checked.

I had problems of comment spaming, but this managed to solve due to this forum.

Now my problem is regisrtation spaming.
100 users have registrated in my site simultaniusly from the same IP. But we know that IP blocking is not the final solutiun of this problem, because thare are a lot of proxy sites which allow users to change their IP-s.

I have read "http://forum.ucoz.com/forum/9-2577-1" page, but I think this is a program who does soch as very quich and many registrations.

I also read and "http://forum.ucoz.com/forum/6-6065-1" this page and I have had done this before this happened.

Can I forbid sertain tipes of e-mail-servers like *@mail.ru, or others, because 98% of this kinde of "users" use this mail server adresses for registering?

Are there any solutiuns ?

Thanks in advance!!!

Ուտոպիստ, I do believe this forum faces exactly the same problem. IP block for now should work.

Dear Armaros, stiralkam1 and all Visitors, megaphone
I anderstood how to prevent REGISTRATION spaming!

This can organize only UCOZ Greate Admins!
It is very Simple!

THEY CAN FORBID REAGISTRATION FROM THE SAME IP DURRING SEVERAL TIME (1 HOUR) AND THIS PROBLEM WILL BE SOLVED FOR EVER.

PLEASE TAKE THIS INTO CONSIDERATION, BECAUSE REGISTRATION SPAMING STILL CONTINUES IN MANY MANY SITES OF UCOZ (Including mine smile ).

Thank's for colaboration! U R D Best!

I have the same issues IP Blocking wont solve the issue. Probably these are people who lives in other country that advertises there sites by spamming registration in our own personal website.

As far as I concern, this group of registration spammers are using this type of Avatars most of the time
They are all registered in UNet System and banning is the only way to stop them.

I have banned 31 spammers so far.

You made me laugh. But I agree with you.

Actually this problem gets bigger and bigger. There must be done something.

They spam not only our sites but also UNET

I think the only soutiun is this.
FORBID REAGISTRATION FROM THE SAME IP DURRING SEVERAL PERIOD OF TIME(eg. 1 HOUR)
which has no way to overcome for spammers!
