    Did you thought about making a regex with all chinese/korean whatever else BS this is - which would prohibit making new threads? You don't have chinese section so it would work I think...
    The amount of spam seems a lot worse today. It's impossible to keep reporting them all. So again I am asking if someone who runs the forum, can do something to stop this.

    They are trying to stop it but they seem to come back.

    I know they delete the messages and ban the accounts, but they really should stop creating accounts this easily or stop freshly made accounts from starting new topics, until they earned the right to do so. The way it is now, is undoable for the mods of this forum and also for those who like to help them, by reporting these messages. I don't mind reporting them, but in the amount they are coming now, it's just too much.

    By the looks of it *knocks on wood* the flood of spam has been stopped.

    So a big thanks for that achievement and the efforts put into it.

    Back again.
    They have weird methodology: they first create a topic named "asdasdasd" with content "asdasfasfasdfa" and then after few minutes change it into asian crap.

    It seems that the spam is back, now that F1 2016 has gone live.

    +1. So much fun reading the forums with all this flying around in between legit threads.

    How about sending an email to confirm not a spammer - I wonder if spamrobots fix that.
    Maybe even having the "I am not a robot" - much better than having to wait rediculous timespan to post.

    I waited now 45 minutes to make second post, since I did not realize each attempt adds 10 minutes to post again.

    Wouldn't banning certain gambling "keyword" would fix the issue?

    It appears we have had a bit of a spam attack recently - I've deleted/banned as many as I can find, but if there's anything else, let me know!

    It appears to have returned with a vengeance over the past day - I've now gone through and banned the naughty IPs/deleted the content associated with these banned users.

    It came back with more 스팸.

    I've seen other forum where you can't post if you use banned word.

    It's working fine for me in the UK, maybe it's a side effect of Brexit?

    I am not a Codemasters employee.
