Are we protected from bot accounts? Already we have one: http://forums.spheredev.org/index.php?action=profile;u=7I'm just curious. Now that N E O (neologix) is an admin, I'm sure everything he wanted to do to combat such attempts can now be done. I hope, that is.
Re that specific user - the website in question has a YouTube video for what looks to be a Castlevania 3 mod or something, and the YT channel seems legit. There's also a highscores tracking page on the site, so the game in question might very well have been made from the ground up in an engine instead of hacking CV3. Original announcement of that game seems to be on this forum.

Recently I got a bot verification site where I had to input a math formula result two times. But I was logged in.
I'll see what's going on with that; so far I haven't come across it myself, but I did put some pretty stringent defense mechanisms on this incarnation of the forums.
Although once TurboSphere is finished, and if there's some way to write combined engine/editor plugins, Sphere will probably be the most powerful 2D game engine around.
Jeez, no pressure, right?
