    Hello World :)

    I don't know where to start from, but as my subject implies, it's all about Automated Registrations

    I have a version of wpmu On my website

    I have the following issue :

    When i enable wpmu user registrations, spammers fill all of my website with their spam content -usually ads of clickbank and amazon-, but i've discovered that they use numbers with their blog names when they sign up, because it is almost a zero possibility of their spam blog name TO BE EXIST on my site, so they will not face any errors during there automated procedure.

    what am looking for is a plugin that disables any blog name that contains any numbers !

    If there is a similar plugin, please inform me about it so i could get rid of those nasty people.

    best regards

    Try WP-HashCash

    and renaming your wp-signup.php to something else works alot for me. You won't believe the amount of 404s I get for that file.

    thnx klark

    I guess that renaming will do the job for the newers, but the old spammers will not give up.
    Wp-hashcash is related to spam comments, am looking for a spam registration blocker.

    any suggestions ??

    No, the old spammers will not give up. I recently found someone advertising software that blasts a lists of 100 wpmu hosts with new blog signups.

    you kind of have to live with it.

    renaming that file is the single most helpful thing you can do.
    wp-hascash also work for autosignups.
    Adding an extra field to the signup also works.
