XF has some basic "flood protection" as shown here:
Instead of just "minimum time between messages" I was hoping there would also be an additional option "until the user has x verified / approved posts".
I'm guessing the only option is to:
- Setup a brand new usergroup called "new users"
- Setup a promotion out of that group and into "bypass flood check"
- Set the "minimum time between posts" to something higher, like 60 seconds or more?
So, what do you do for Post / Topic flood protection to stop the dirty spammers from posting a ton of junk on your forum?
