digip Posted June 19, 2008 Share Posted June 19, 2008 I was talking with Vako the other day about this, but it seems we need to impliment some sort of minimum post mod to the forums again, like we had on the old SMF forums. People used to need to have a certain number of posts under their belt before they could post links, but since the move to the new forums, people can now post spammy links on their first Topic post. Once they know this, they can just keep creating new acocunts and posting 1 post with spam in them move on. I have flagged a few of them lately, so it seems like the spam is picking up momentum. Not sure how many others have been flagged or deleted since the move to the new forums, but just wanted to see if there is anything we can do about it. THIS IS NOT A RANT AGAINST THE NEW FORUM SOFTWARE, but I think that it is a legit problem that needs to be discussed and worked on. If there isn't a known mod to post links after a certain minimum post count using the current forum software, then maybe someone here who is good with php could write one for us or collaborate on a fix.
