Is there a setting somewhere to prevent members being able to add URL's in their profile for phpBB registration?
I know ver 2.0.11 had the validation code but one Adult forum I manage still gets people registering just to get a link. I know I can block memberlist.php with robots.txt but I want to prevent it rather than cure it so I don't have to delete these idiots accounts every day.
I have run a commuinity for about 3 years - and tested several ways of running it - I found that if I blocked people using urls that I lost the professionals who were good posters ... because they at least got some recognition / branding if I let them post their urls
It can only add value really to your fourm - unless they are posting links to another fourm
