    An idea to decrease the number of bots

    I was thinking there should be a requirement where in order to post a link you must have at least 25 posts or something like that. This way the bots won't be able to start posting links upon creating their account.

    Wouldn't a better idea be something like a captcha requirement for ALL posts? Maybe premium members could bypass this requirement for example?

    Before I knew about how many there were, I used to get baited into their threads all the time and it was hilariously annoying

    Captcha can also really be inconvenient for frequent posters and sometimes it's just really annoying ahhhhhhhhhh especially when you get it right and the system still declines you lol

    I just don't want another KissAnime situation on our hands (where my anime friends at???)

    Idk if I'm allowed to disclose it but either the coders of the bots have figured out the system or it's a human spambot
