    Anti-Spam measures to be taken

    Basically, I have seen that some members join, post 10 or so adverts, get banned, sign up again etc etc. So I want to give these suggestions:
    1. No new member can post links until he/she has 50 posts
    2. The aforementioned posts should be genuine and not like these: I want to know this too, or Yes, I am completely agree with you or I do not know...
    3. The new members should be put under moderation until they have 50 genuine posts so they cannot -see above-
    4. Mods should be more active and/or new mods should be made from different time-zones.

    If youhave any other ideas, please post them here.

    How do we sort out issue 2? Its an impossible issue.

    The best solution is reporting all posts that break forum rules, so if there are no mods on at that time, they can still resolve the issue later.

    In theor assassin that is all well and good but unrealistic.
    This is a open forum and the mods are not paid to be here.
    They have lives to.
    There will allways be spammers its just the way it is. The mods do a good job and like patch said if you see something report it and help them out.

    well, patch, in PSP-Forum, no new member could post links until they had 15 posts, so it is possible. Sometimes, there are several mods, admin.s, but they take no action...

    I think number 2 is possible, Patch.

    Post moderation, posts are moderated before they are put up.

    And it can be enabled for user X until post count Y or whatever.

    Post moderation, posts are moderated before they are put up.
    posts would then take hours to be read, and its hard to understand the context the poster is using as isolated posts, I'm also not sure if the boards actually have a system like that built in.

    well, patch, in PSP-Forum, no new member could post links until they had 15 posts, so it is possible. Sometimes, there are several mods, admin.s, but they take no action...
    I know the link block is possible, and I seem to remember the forum using it on the old host (might be going mad though)

    and often it is hard for mods to read every post on the forum, if you've noticed a problem, use the report function, don't just wait for us to stumble upon it.

    many reported posts don't actually break our forum rules, sometimes we also just give members warnings.
