Spam prevention

Added by Daniel Nauck at 2011-03-15 09:09 am


i'm investigating to port a larger open source project from JIRA & co to ChilliProject.
My daily experience is, that wiki, issue tracker & co are very vulnerable to spam and this downgrades the usability of the project infrastructure.

So how do you suggest to prevent spam in ChilliProject?
I only found the redmine_recaptcha plugin, but this does not work with ChilliProject 1.1.0

I know this isn't ideal, but one solution that I use on several of my public sites is to create a custom user field like "What is 2+3" with a regex of ^5$ and make it required. Obviously this shows up in their profiles and such, but I honestly have had no spambots after doing this, and it's a fair trade-off for that, and the fact that I don't have to spend any time doing any coding or spam cleanup.

spammer prevention is a problem for us using redmine... and we would like to see something implemented
also allowing anonymous users to assign a ticket is not good also

this is related to the issue

The redmine_recaptcha plugin is still brocken on Chiliproject 2.2.
It would be really helpful to have build-in spam prevention. This should be a fundamental feature of the core project.
