Minimum Posts To Start New Topic

Post by Hilm on January 18th 2010, 12:08 am

Hi,

I was thinking that we could have a system like the PM system for members. Say when a member signs up, they can't create a new topic until they have posted a certain number of posts(decided by the Admin). It would stop people spamming forums and bots doing the same. I've seen it on phpbb forums and it works.

Thanks

Hilm

It becomes a problem when you have rivals who try to make your forum look bad, that's my reason.

You can always make a group and have auto group put on it put like 50 post before they can post in that section with permissions.

I know what you mean. I would then enforce IP bans. Wink

I would recommend changing the poll options to "Yes" or "No".

Definitely.

This would be a good feature, and would avoid spam boys making default spam topics, as many are programmed to make topics, rather than posts. Its a feature on PHPBB3.0.6 and should be modded on the ForuMotion software.
