Due to the abundance of spamming robots, FFForums uses measures to reduce the amount of spam that is posted on our boards. These measures may prove mildly difficult for some guests to circumvent without help.
Here's how you can prove you're not a robot:
- Fill in the silly question field. This question will change periodically, but the answer will always be obvious. Bots insert text into known fields and submit; most will not recognize this field and either leave it blank or fill it with garbage/spam. Without inserting the correct code, a guest post will not be submitted. Show us you're not a robot by reading and understanding directions.
- Be sure that at least ten seconds has elapsed between the time you load a reply page and the time you hit submit. Bots tend to automatically fill out fields in the blink of an eye and submit; show us you're not a bot by actually typing a meaningful message, which ought to take that much time anyway.
- If you submit too quickly, your action will be treated as a preview request. Simply wait ten seconds after the preview has loaded to submit.
- You will have to fill out the silly question field again whenever a preview is generated.
