It is obvious, that our captcha sucks Though, sometimes i think, maybe they just found some hole in the system, as they are not just circumventing captcha, they also confirm the activation email, though sometimes it looks like not existing emails addresses. Funny that i now confirm every new registration and nothing happens. Probably they don’t expect for registration to take longer. Yet.
Improving recaptcha could help, but we also need to take a look at low level information (logs, database) and maybe find out IP patterns and block them. There are some interceptor triggers in the SBS Admin Console. But the only useful is one catching phrases in the new content. But we need something smarter. Like maybe limiting new user to create new content only after 1 day, or marking as abuse if user creates 5 content files in a few minutes, etc.
About the SBS. Actually new SBS looks more visually appealing, but i’m more concern about the usability. Its home screen just shows activity flow which is useless for me and then there is another tab “Content” which shows all content in one list. I haven’t find an option to modify your home screen (maybe community.jivesoftware.com has limited this) and add widgets. Compare what you get on your home screen there and with my current setup. Just to many hopping to get needed information, when i can have it now with one glance or click.
