    Default Forum update - authentication question is back - Sorry about the inconvenience

    Hi guys,

    you've probably seen the spam we've been getting. Because of this, we've added back the answer-requirement for posts as well. We hope to find a way to combat this in the future, we'd like this to be a temporary measure.

    Thanks,
    Zen Forum Team

    Forgive me if I'm wrong, but didn't the forum receive spam before the test question was removed?

    It'll definitively help deal with the bot posts, which have been a lot lately.
