At the request of a member Ringmaster I have just added a new Ringlink feature to the WOW Webring System. It prevents Spam in the form of automatic submissions of new sites to your webring. It's a simple cookie solution, which isn't as safe as CAPTCHA, but on the other hand your members are not bothered with extra typing. The Ringlink Developer says it has proved to be very effective, with automatic Spam sites that he had previously received on the Ringlink Demo Ring, having ceased completely. See the debate.
Please feel free to activate the new feature by clicking the Edit ring button in Ringadmin, and then placing a check mark next to where it says Prevent automatic (Spam) submissions of sites.
This new feature is not compatible with using separate off system forms on your webring's homepage. In other words, if you enable the feature, new sites need to be submitted using a link from your webring's homepage to the system's 'newsite.pl' page else the program will not function as expected. So, if using off system forms for your webring you would need not enable this new feature.
If you have any issues concerning this new feature please contact Ringlink Development.
Ringlink is the engine that powers this system.
If a Ringlink System Admin, you can get the updated files here.
