Stop bots from reviving old threads?


Well-known member
I'm wondering if there is a way to stop new members or bots from posting on threads older than say 6 months, or a year? We got a few old threads being revived by "new members" who post meaningless content (GPT4?). So I'm looking to see if there can be a rule set via Xenforo or an addon in order to stop this behavior?


Addon Old thread warning I think by @Ozzy47 is very good, but I guess only for people not bots.

I would look into ways to stop bots from registering.

I use it on one of my forums and it works excellent.

Or this:
The accepting old thread warning can be configured per-usergroup so you can show the old thread warning to normal users (and they can post) but very new users can't bypass it.
