We've been having an increasing problem with spam accounts and spam posting on the forum recently. We've noticed this only seems to have affected the Iray for 3ds Max forum and not any of the others. The only thing special about this forum would seem to be that it is at the top of the forum listing page. As such we've decided to try placing a "spam catcher" forum at the top of the page instead, to keep those posts away from the main forums. Anything posted in this forum is to be considered spam and shouldn't be opened.

We appreciate that this isn't the most elegant solution, but we are trying to avoid moderation periods for new accounts as we want to try and keep the forums as open as possible to allow new users to quickly post if they have issues.
