    Dear,

    I'd like to have the feature to require the first post of every member to be accepted by a moderator, this is to prevent spam, I have a lot of spam bots spamming my forums and I need to stop this.
    If there are any functions or addons for this, please tell me.

    Thank you in advance!

    Best Regards,
    Bas de Vet

    Most admins avoid adding user groups in order to keep things simple.

    That is not correct.

    @Brogan is there an option to set max posts under moderation per user?
    So if I have 5 posts under moderation, I can't post a 6th one until one of the posts under moderation gets accepted?

    No, that isn't an option.

    Then... set the various spam prevention measures in the ACP up correctly so that you will not get many spam registrations getting through in the first place.
