I'd like to see some sort of random visual letter/number generator thing that a guest would have to type in before they submit an entry.

This is a good idea. If I knew Perl, I'd whip it up, but I'll recommend something similar to what we do with the registration process here: use an auth code, and post it somewhere on your site. The reason it works so well--better than random number generators which all bots seem able to crack now--is that bots won't understand to go looking for the auth code....they'll just move on.

Something like that would be good. How did you set up your system, and how could it be integrated into Coranto?

Thanks!
