Add-on Limiting users on a time basis

#1
Hi there,

Basically, I was wondering if it would be possible/if it exists already for a user to only be able to post in a certain sub forum once they have been on the forums for a set amount of time?

I know there are post count based versions of this, however when I ran this i just noticed people would spam other sub forums until their post count hit the value required to post in the limited forum.

This would be mitigated if I could set it so that a user could only post in a limited sub forum once they reach a certain amount of time registered on the forums, maybe an hour/week/month etc.

Is this something that exists already or could be done?

Yes, this is possible. You can create a group promotion and set User has been registered for at least X days criteria to whatever amount of time you want. Then you can use the Nodes permisisons to restrict memmbers of the group from posting. The other way to accomplish this is a custom Add On. But the first method is preferable in my opinion.
