Quick suggestion for this page: https://devdojo.com/dashboard/questions
It would be really nice to have an extra column showing to the user if the question was answered or Closed.
Just a small thing that would help us better visualize our posts.

That is a great suggestion Ben! I’ll make sure to add this next week 🙌

You are welcome Boddy, spam above by the way.
I am currently dealing with a lot of spam on a customer platform(Laravel), what a pain! The only thing that worked for me at the moment(if this can help) is:
-40 Questions / Answers about any subjects(not just math or their bot crack it).
-ReCAPTCHA on the top of it.
-Disable social logins as some use fake twitter/Facebook accounts.
-Rate Limiter(set up to 4 tries per minute) on the signup page as some spammers keep reloading the page to end up on 1 question their bot can answer well.
Hope this help!

Hey Ben! Thanks for those suggestions, we do have some of those implemented, we have a rate limiter for question/answer per minute and we do have SMS verification. What helped us was disabling the email authentication as it seems to have stopped the majority of the bots. But we do still get some occasional ones like the one that you saw on this question 😅

I tried V2 and v3 but it won't matter much to be honest as they will use APIs which sends the catpcha to be resolved by a human each time(eg: 2Captcha or Death By Captcha). They will use proxies + multiple browser agents and random typing, browsing and clicking. So the only thing you can do to really bother them are different questions because they will need to recode their bot each time. You can even use OCRs to take screen pictures and read anything pixel by pixel. Many years ago, I used to help a friend in this field :).

I've just merged that change! Let me know if anything else pops up!
