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.
  • Mostly quotes/spoilers 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 and this logs shows when viewing warnings/reports for that post.

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

Moderate specific thread

Force all replies for a specific thread to be sent to the approval queue, and optionally only allow a single pending approval post for a user in that thread

Works with the following Content Types
  • Threads
Per thread options

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

Example output:

Known limitations

I've used this for over a year on a large forum with over 20 million posts. It's been working with no problems. I use it to keep people from posting to old threads.
This addon provides stellar spam reducing tools; Our forums have seen a significant reduction in low-quality posts since installation. Great for very popular threads too!
Must have add-on to avoid users spam :) If you have any problem or bug, Xon will fix it really fast!
