Introduces friction for low-effort posting. Asks if they are sure and really want to post when:
  • Replying to old threads - global, forum or per thread.
  • Low-word count posts - global, forum or per thread.
  • High-word count posts - global, forum or per thread.
  • Too fast reply after an existing reply - Per thread. (Requires Redis Cache)
  • Blacklisting or whitelisting - per thread (Requires Content Ratings)
If the user accepts, this is recorded into the database but there is currently no UI this log.
More counter measures will be introduced over time.

Displays recent users who have posted despite the post friction warning, optional limit per page (default 30 per page)

Works with the following Content Types
  • Threads
Per thread options

Under Thread Tools -> Post Friction; (listing users who posted anyway, with Content Rating support):

(blank/zero = do not apply)

Example output:

Known limitations
