Just to let you know, the full Joomla plugin is now available - which gives many options for validating registrations, including of course Botscout.

Thanks for providing the bot database  :)

Thanks purplepomegranite.  It's a great plugin.  It did not affect performance and I have went without alphabet registration for about 8 hrs now.  I hope you have that plugin listed on the joomla JED cause it has been a long time in coming.

Just a note.  Mollom, Moovur or whatever has a reportedly similar product (using a different database, of course).  Their site is not working correctly.  Cedit downloaded simply and installed even simpler.  Get it on the JED so i can enter a review.

I'm glad it's working for you  :)

Since writing and releasing the update, I have removed all captcha from my own site and am just relying on Botscout and Undisposable to filter out unwanted registrations.  I am pleased to say that I have still yet to have a Bot/spam registration for more than a week, which is great - I hate captcha anyway.

My plugins are already listed on JED, with Registration Validator being here: http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/access-&-security/authentication/7319/details

Just to let you know, my Joomla plugin that incorporates Botscout check is now up to v1.1.7.  It incorporates a few updates, most notably working with several more Joomla modules (and more will be added on request!).  Also incorporates basic anti-spam for contact forms (rejects URLs).  Of course, the Botscout check is still there, though no updates for that one (it just works!  ;D).
