How can i RESTRICT post?

Post by RyanHowat on July 15th 2010, 10:45 pm

I have someone who annoingly Post about 50 post a day about the same thing. And most of them (Like 30) are "lol's" I think he is doing this JUST to rank up. I tried deleting his post but then he goes on and on RANTING that im unfair to him. Any who, I'm sick of going through and deleting his post, and i DON'T want him to be banned because he is a group LEADER of a very large group. SO i want to restrict Post to like 6 per 24 hours for every member but me.


note: He joined yesterday and he has 157 post allready. And I counted 103 that JUST said "LOL!"

you cant restrict the post count open how many someone can post.
you can put on a flood control but then that will be on for all members.

Just tell him that spamming the boards is not allowed.if he is going to comment then leave something since or real and not just smiles. if it continues you will be forced to place a warning. and perhaps lead to a ban.

Make up some of your own forums rules to be placed in stickies or a rules board for all members to read as well.

what flood control. no thats for all members.
say you have it set for 30 seconds.. then no one will be able to post again until they wait 30 seconds.. a lot of people just use this to help slow down spammers.

You can activate Flood control by going to General > Security, and find "Flood Control". Wink
