New Posting Rules - Anti-Spam efforts

In an effort to stop spammers from posting links on the forums we've implemented a policy that stops users from posting links/images if their post count is bellow 20.

This will not effect regular posting, only links and images.

Hope this isn't too much of an inconvenience.

Re: New Posting Rules - Anti-Spam efforts

FYI. On Thursday 5/6/2010 we implemented some serious "anti-spam" improvements to have less spammers registering and posting.

Even though they're quickly cleaned up they're a real pest and annoyance. We also added some moderator tools that is available to watchdogs too, to allow quick spam removal. The most notable is an plug-in that checks and blocks usernames, emails, IPs against stopforumspam.com blacklist database of known spammers. This will dramatically cut down on spammer registration with no further intervention required.

I have noticed a huge change so please let us know if you notice any improvements or not... glen
