anti-splog plugin/ pattern matchin

when using the anti-splog plugin and under the tab pattern matching/ add pattern it read Regular Expressions must be in a valid delimited PCRE format. Regex can be very complicated, so it's recommended to use an online tool like RegExr to build and test them. It is also recommended in most cases to use the "Mark as Splog" action rather than block. This will make it much harder for spammers to learn how to get around your pattern rules, and will also allow the Anti-Splog API to learn from these detected spammers, where do I mark as splog, thank you

    Hey Orlando,

    Hope you are well today!

    Anti-Splog comes with a lot of built-in Regular Expressions. Are you receiving lots of spam sign ups from bots? If not, then you likely don't have to add anything in this section.

    However, to answer your question, the Mark as Splot option is underneath "Action" in the Add Pattern widget if you're creating a new expression. I've attached a screenshot to illustrate.

    It's set to Mark as Splog by default, so you shouldn't have to change anything :slight_smile:

    Does that answer your question? If not, let us know what else you're after here and we'd be happy to help!
