Is this forum dead folks?
It would be so nice if something made sense for a change.
If you are still curious and not entirely satisfied...
I own a VBulletin forum and can tell you that apart from the spam, a lot of people do actually register but can't figure out a way to post or start a thread. I had to write a thread on my forum to let newbies know how to use the forum!
Secondly, another thing I have observed is a lot of people sign up but really have no intention of posting. Now my forum is a special case because there are a lot of useful attachments there, which one can only access after registering. But I am sure it happens on all forums to some degree.
Thirdly, Ratatosk, I use a very effective Mod which has effectively reduced spam registeration 100%. It's called NoSpam. Here's the link to the VB 3.6 version. I use questions like Type Oracle, or what is 1.5 + 2.5 etc. No bot in the world can be programmed for such random questions. Since I added it, never had a problem with Spam registerations.
Brother Sadiq care to give me the link to your forum,insha'Allaah?
Oracle Forums. It's for professionals of various Oracle technologies, like database, applications etc.
Oh. JazakAllah Khayr.
I think I am that rare member that just joins and posts brother Yahya has mentioned
