XF 1.5 Approving Members (to control spammers)

#1
It seems that our spammers come in between 12-4AM (PST). Is a way in the settings that we can set a timer that all members need to be approved during a certain time frame?

No, there is no option for that.

Have you tried tweaking the spam settings to better detect and catch them, so they enter the approval queue?

There's no tutorial as such, you adjust the various spam settings based on the type of spammers who register on your site.

There are some threads in the HYS forum showcasing the various features but ultimately, each site differs in what works best: https://xenforo.com/community/forums/have-you-seen/

The options can be found under Spam Management.
