Captcha at login

To prevent the type of attack from last night where someone used bots with hundreds of hacked Minecraft accounts to connect and spam the chat we’ve added a Captcha challenge at login.

When you log in, you will see a message like this:

Simply read the question in green and then type the answer in chat. Then press enter.

I’ve marked the areas with the question and the response with red rectangles in the image above.

Donators and known players will not see the captcha challenge at login.

Enjoy the added safety!

      This is the message that got you banned:

      2012-11-17 01:11:51 [INFO] owserrocks] rape shitter in the babies

      What were you thinking saying that in the middle of similarly worded spam, not to mention the message contents itself? I’ve unbanned you both.

    i was muted recently during the time of the spam, i think i was mistakened for a spammer, when will the mute wear off?

      No, the reason you were muted had nothing to do with the spammers. You were muted for this:

      2012-11-16 19:19:29 [INFO] rabberkiller] (this is a joke) go to (link removed) for pvp! (link removed)!

      I have checked and the link doesn’t exist, so it was indeed a joke. However moderators are volunteers and can’t expect them to check every link people post to see if it’s really a joke or not. So don’t do it in future.

      You are unmuted.
