Technical Informations: Eliminating Spam on The International NanoScience Community

We’re pleased to announce that tonight’s release is now live. This release consists of two projects built to prevent spam on The International NanoScience Community:

* New members on a TINC will now verify their email addresses when they sign up. Additionally, all current members will need to verify their email address once if they haven’t done so already.


No one likes spam, especially us. It makes for a less-than-awesome TINC experience for members and makes TINC-Staff’s life harder than it needs to be. While we’ve been building spam prevention into more and more elements of the TINC, we’re constantly looking to drive more spam prevention projects that make TINC even better. Some of these projects are obvious and others are behind-the-scenes. Our ultimate goal is to eliminate spam on TINC before it ever gets there.

New members on TINC will now verify their email addresses when they sign up. After entering their email address, password, birthday and the CAPTCHA, they’ll be sent a verification email. By clicking a link in the email they receive, they can finish signing up for the TINC. Additionally, all current members will need to verify their email address once if they haven’t done so already.

* New members will see a better CAPTCHA system when they sign up. The CAPTCHA is the code of numbers and letters that people fill in to confirm that they’re real people on the sign up page.

Together, email verification and an improved CAPTCHA will go a long way in ensuring that members are real people who are going to contribute to the TINC in positive ways.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
