I think maybe something like "what is the original color of a skoolie?"
This gets my vote as well. Same idea works well on another forum, where I am a member.

For sure it is different. When I signed up, and was asked "what color," I would have said Yellow. I didn't know that there was a special formula for a school bus. It may discourage potential members that didn't know, or didn't think to even search for "What color were School Buses painted?"
Just my .02,

Keith

I don't think it has to be this way. But the only person who can fix it doesn't seem to care, and doesn't reply to PMs.

Something as easy as setting the max number of messages allowed in the moderation queue =1 for each user would be a help. That, and banning Chinese IP addresses, would take a few minutes to implement and save the mods considerable time each day.

Re: Spam, spam, spam...

Attack of the spambots!
I was just in the School Bus News forum and noticed that my name was the only one that even looked like that of a real member. (It was early Sunday morning.) One of the three others was:
Username:6bevn90x7c
Rank:Scared to Post
Groups:Newly registered usersRegistered users
My Bus:mno590
Year:1990
Coachwork:nop467
Chassis:tuv214
Engine:qrs448
Rated Cap.:0
Just registered April 5th.

I've seen plenty of IH3800 chassis and DT466 engines... Never heard of a nop467 body on a tuv214 chassis/qrs448 engine... new Chinese make, perhaps? Rated capacity zero because suspension isn't worth a crap?

Yep, we've been seeing about 2500-3000 spams per day, but just in the last day it's already up to 5000.

Yes, this is by far the most spam we've seen. Nearly 8000 in the past 24 hours.

Hey GE,

Sorry I couldn't continue helping you delete those 5000 spam posts this morning. I had an appointment I had to get to so I deleted as many as I could. I did however attempt to email Steve at the email address he had on file for the domain name. I will let you all know if I here anything.
