Today I have modified the internal code of the
COOP or DIE
webchat for preventing
spam bots. It is a minor modification without anything noticeable by classic user.
It seem to work and I haven't noticed any new spam in the webchat since the update.
The spam problem make me a little angry about the future merge of PhpBB with the
COOP or DIE worlserver. I plan to only allow users to post messages in the forum
after their first ingame connection to the worlserver.
I think spam bots will have some difficulty with that. Of course an alternative
to the forum will be used for providing support to player who have problems to
connect. Something like a direct message
to the admin will do the job.
