I Remember There Was A Forum Extension For FluxBB To Fight Spam. Could This Possibly Be Implemented Into FutureBB Too? As An Extension, Or Built In. It Doesn't Matter To The Best Futuresighter Ever.

Well, the issue is that there are a lot of different ways to fight spam. We could include a mod for StopForumSpam.com, reCAPTCHA, as well as many other services.

However, we will consider this.

I Mean Like, The Trick With The Hidden Password Field.

Most spammers have adapted to that one, so it's not really of much use anymore.

If you are going to implement a Captcha, you should create an option for users to switch between different Captcha providers (such as reCAPTCHA, Solve Media, Minteye, etc). This is because people have their preference of Captcha type. For example, some people don't like reCAPTCHA because it may be difficult to read. They might want to use Solve Media, because it is easier to read, or Minteye, because they like sliding Captchas.

And What Would Stop Bots From Choosing The Easiest Captcha?

I think this was talking about the administrator choosing, not the registering user.

Oh. They Still Could've Been A Lot More Clear.

I would say any captcha provider can be cracked, if enough research was done.

It would get too confusing if the user got to choose, and as Mrsrec points out, if one is easily cracked spambots will always just choose that one. However, if one is harder to crack, the admin can choose that one.
