    Just move the entire site over to a subreddit already.

    It would be great if there could be a solution for the spam that didn't involve captcha.

    It's been noticed at Tiny HQ apparently and they are working on it - trying to find out why there was a huge spam deluge all of a sudden.

      I suspect it’s predominately one person or company (lots of identical IPs on the accounts that signed up). I delete as much as I can, as fast as I can. :)

    I've turned off notifications due to the spam problem. Recent comments from mods regarding the issue:

    A captcha might help, but the issue really needs to be addressed at the account creation stage. Making the site invite-only again, which has been discussed, would help a lot.

      IMHO that would put a barrier to new people joining and that can be frustrating when you start your career, etc.

      I would bet on the captcha first and go from there. Or an integration with a Askimet or alike.

        I don't think reaching out to someone is that hard (and is good if you're starting your career) and many sites have worked like this for a long time and have been just fine. http://lobste.rs is a good current example.

              "All moderator actions on this site are visible to everyone and the identities of those moderators are made public. While the individual actions of a moderator may cause debate, there should be no question about if an action happened or who is responsible."

              I can't say I've seen that approach before. I like it.

                It works really well. The site is more or less free of drama. A few months ago, the person who started the site effectively transitioned the whole thing to the community, and with it all being transparent, it's worked flawlessly.

      And it's really a pity to be forced to disable notifications. That lowers the activity on the community.
