For the most part the spam protection is picking them up but there is still some posts getting through.
To combat this I am going to moderate everyone's first 5 posts by -
1) Modify registered users group to "No" for follow message moderation rules
2) Create a new user group "Verified Users" and promotion to move registered users to once they reach 5 posts
What I wanted to know is how I can I -
1) Create a new user group that has the same permissions of an existing group like a copy or do I have manually set each individual permission?
2) Of my existing 2,000 users will they be automatically be promoted to the "Verified Users" group if they already have 5 posts upon creation of the promotion or will I need to move them manually across?
