New Anti-spam Tactics Implemented!

Recommended Posts

Since there is no end in sight for the decline of people trying to spam this site, There are new antispam functions in place. Anyone in the "MEMBERS" usergroup who has less then 3 posts on this forum will be moderated until there fourth post is made. So any users that have registered and wish to start posting, we encourage you to do so, but be aware that those posts will not show up immediately to other members. After your third post has been "Approved" by one of the moderators/admins on this site....your following posts will show up as normal.

Thanks for your understanding

Is this the reason why I'm being moderated?

Been waiting most of the day for the posts to get approved.

Yes it seems as though the antispam mod has a slight flaw

The way I thought It would work

Every new member that registers has there first 3 posts to this forum moderated, Once a moderator or admin approves those 3 posts, all other posts show up as normal. If any of those first 3 posts a member makes have more then 2 hyperlinks in them, the member is moved into a restricted usergroup and the moderators are alerted to a possible spam attack on the forum

The way it actually works

Works pretty much the way as described above, but moderates EVERYONE in the MEMBERS group until 3 of there posts have been approved by a moderator or admin. So even if a member has 20 posts already at the time of me installing that modification, it still requires there next 3 posts to be moderated
