Captcha and antispam


A rather funny story happened to us this morning !

To keep it short, about 50 new members registered within a few minutes. We thought that was strange, so we activated a new anti-spam system on Quizity ! New members will see it as a captcha question at registration but there's more.

Anyway, we then studied the case a bit further... and discovered that the 50 registrations seemed legitimate ! The members appear to be students or so it seems. So our best guess is, a teacher asked his class to connect to Quizity and create educative quizes !

In the end, there was no reason to panic, and furthermore it's great news for Quizity ! Maybe one of our new members could tell us what happened exactly ? :)
