We've had loads of spammer attempt to sign up, we have out accounts on manual validation, so they never actually get as far as posting on the boards, had to switch to Q & A instead of recaptcha, it's slowed it, but I need to tweek the questions a bit more

Wow just had some one post porn, and I have email activation turned on... wow they are getting past that too, unless it is a real person.

Pre-moderate all new user posts or you will wake up to porn every morning and your guests will be exposed to it.

Create user groups and move real members into a user group not subject to pre-moderation unless you have moderators online 24/7, which most forums do not !!

I'm looking but I can't find it. Was there an addon here that allowed us to promote users based on post count? So you could create a "Probation" user group and set it up so that they wouldn't be a Registered User until say 10 posts. That way you could set the Probation user group to not have sigs or PMs.

Am I just blind?
