    Hello Scott,

     

    I have difficulties with Anonymous VOTE. I would like to keep anonymous VOTE, but there is someone who designed a bot to vote 1 on some articles (using a different IP each time...)
    :-(
    Is there any possibility you can improve the vote system, by for example requesting people to click on "submit" when they change the note for example ?

    Any news regarding the possibility to improve the VOTE functionnality to avoid "spamming vote" ???
    Something like a captcha or similar, or changing the URL or whatever ??

    Not at the moment, most users keep this for authenticated users only. I've done a major architectural upgrade to news articles that I need to test before releasing any more updates.

    Hello,

    Since Scott introduced Akismet in News Article, I have much less spam in our comments (it's a public comment section - I can't ask people to register).

    But unfortunately, it arrives that Akismet is missing some spams. I have ~400 per month correctly reported, while ~10 are not detected.
    I have checked with people from Akismet, and they propose that I implement a "submit-spam API call", but since I am not a developper, I have no idea how to do this. Is there anybody who have an idea how this could be implemented, maybe in the templating system ???

    The information from AKISMET Submit-spam is here:
