Using Notices to be a "second confirm" someone is not a bot.

    The current registration system at most sites is a "one time" thing.
    Fill everything out, type in the captcha properly, respond to the email.
    Pass all that and then the registered member is free to do what they want.

    Notices are a way to make the User interact with Xenforo. Spam bots do not do well with random interactions

    Idea: User click the [New Post] button
    Notice: Please click on the blue triangle before posting.

    Perhaps threads should be fully formed before being committed to (virtual) paper.... just a thought.

    If I started a new thread with every half baked pre-coffee early morning thought, the place would be pretty bizarre!

    Especially when you take into consideration all the "closed at authors request" and "merged into the first of million duplicated threads" and "closed because you all have lost your mind" posts he has to make :D

    I like the idea in general. The notice displays some message that you have to take some action. All accounts taking this action will get approved. Or all accounts don't doing this action will get disapproved after some time.
