Would be cool to see this site served over https.

Check out https://letsencrypt.org -- they offer free certs (wildcards too) with automatic renewal as well.

Legit not posting this link as spam, just going through my email and cleaning up accounts and landed here and seen it wasn't SSL.

Let me know if I can help (admins have my email address)

wrightmat -- I understand, it just felt a bit game breaking -- but as I described, I haven't played it enough to know for sure! Thanks for the reply!

Christopho -- Here's a few steps that will probably help:

 -- Remove the SMF / Simple Machines Forum footer that is added to each page. Generally, spam bots will scan for these chunks of data w/ the version, and exploit particular issues with them.

 -- Change the form design on registration (field names, etc) and make sure to update the PHP as well. Generally these scripts are written to grab specific IDs or element names out of DOM, and if they're different, they will fail.

 -- Institute recaptcha instead of the SMF captcha.


A lot of other boards will tend to hold all messages by new members in a moderation queue, and once approved, the member's account becomes "unrestricted", e.g. no captchas and what not.


Not telling you how to run the forum, but I do have quite a bit of experience in handling sock puppet accounts and spam in packaged bulletin board software (phpBB/vBulletin/SMF/etc). So hopefully that will help out.

The captchas and questions and everything have to be KILLING these forums.

Anyway, the guy in the bottom, right hand of the map who tells you about the circles, and gives you a gift of 10 rupees -- you can talk to him as many times as you want, and he'll give you 10 each time.

Also, I cant light all of the things in the race, since I need a sword to chop down some bushes, and I can't get the sword without waiting an hour? There has to be a trigger for this somewhere.

I also was stuck on the race screen (could not go south), so I aborted the game and reloaded my last save.

Sorry if there's tone here, but the anti-spam measures are really only punishing members.
