Seem to have a lot of bots trying to register on the forum atm,  Any idea`s how to make it harder for them to do so anyone.

Atm i`m running 2.0.17

Oh and i`ve got the Verification settings on showing character that they have to match up to register.

Set up some verification questions relevant to the subject of the site.  It does work.  ;)

In my opinion, blocking IPs, countries and agents at a server level helps a lot. Initially, paying attention to who is online on what they are doing will give you hints.
