Hello,
I will be totally strange when my website in Xrumer 2012.



Follow these methods-

1) Install the Forum Firewall ,Bad Behaviour Mod,httpbl,stop forum spam,bot scouster.

2) Do not use the cloudflare. Cloudflare security is easy to break. You can not banned the hostname of cloudflare.All the members will get banned include the admin.

3) Spammers are come for the links only. Install these three mod also-

Prevent Adding Signature and Links Mod
Permission for Website Url Of Users
Hide Links

4) Remove the permission of "view other profile" from Guest Area.Spammers always try to make the profile backlinks.

5) Add the question from the Anti SPAM ( Configuration->Security and Moderation -> Anti Spam ). Change the Anti Spam question every 10 days.

6) Do not allow the guest posting.

7) Use this in Anti Spam (HelpPost count under which users must pass verification to make a post) .Minimum four post require for the members.

8) Try to avoid create backlinks in Russia(.ru) and China (.cn). Both are the famous for spamming.

You may purchase and use the additional feature "block script" which is not available here.

Not sure what the issue is here. We actually help cut down spam a great deal as well. Are you having issues because the IPs show as CloudFlare's?

Moved to "Tips and Tricks" since that's probably the best home for this topic :)
