User Settings and space?

Post by TWear on August 20th 2010, 3:11 am

First of all it says I will run out of space in November (but of a fake year) so does this mean I won't have to worry about having a space problem or...what?

And second, I need to know how I can set my forums settings so that computers can't make tons of accounts to upload crap. So I'll need to learn how to do the code thing (where you have to say whats in the picture) and is there a way that I can accept them as they come rather than accepting Everyone?

Any help would be appreciated,

D

Oooh. Is it possible that this forum doesn't have that? and that's why there is an option for the admin to accept new users so that we can sort through them ourselves? Can we make automatic messages with applications to fill out and send back kind of like how yahoo groups can do?

AC > General > Security > IP address accounts creation limit, for each 24 hours

You can set that. It will limit the number of accounts they can create per IP I believe.

Yes you can make it so the admin has to accept accounts only so that way people can't post until you accept it.

I am not sure what you mean by automatic messages.. you mean like when you sign up it sends a message to the registered user?

Yeah, so that when someone signs up they will automatically receive an email asking them to fill out a short form and then send it back and Then they will be verified.
Thanks for the I.P. address thing...Although I hope you know I meant by 'computers' making accounts I meant bots that make accounts to upload porn and crap to the forum pages. I would assume (as long as they don't know how to change their I.P.) that with that and having to go through the verification through admin it would be quite safe/free from such bots.
