    Any information on how lost, description information. I let Toady out to go to the bathroom at 6 pm. Even if he wanders, he normally comes right back when called. I have a feeling someone picked him up thinking he was lost because he's never not come when called or not come back home within 20 minutes.

    Hi,

    In addition to my colleague on the other thread, you can also use captcha for spam protection, this would help fight spams and deter bots. Here's a screen guide:

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    You can apply my colleague's suggestion here: http://www.jotform.com/answers/142573-How-are-we-able-to-stop-a-repeating-jot-form-The-person-just-let-her-computer-keep-loading-the-jot-form#1. This should prevent it since the form limits the submissions 1 per IP or per browser cookies.

    Also, you just need to edit your form and add the captcha tool and the form should automatically update on your page.

    Thanks!

    FYI, I have also reseted the numbers consumed by spam submissions on your submissions counter as I can see them on your form's submissions page.
