I've modified something that may allow us to allow new members but restrict the spamming. New users will require post approval for their first **3** posts to ensure they are interested in participating in the forums than "abusing it". Additionally, there is now a 30 second delay requirement between posts.

I've also added a time limit for post editing to be 60 min (this avoids the ability for someone to go back and add spam URLs a few days later).

If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to ask here or send me a PM.

I don't know, how I should feel about this as sometimes I just have an urge to wipe something I said earlier and so far I've liked that you can modify posts whenever you feel like it.

I'd be entirely open to discussion but part of why I did this is to prevent spammers from going back and altering posts with info. Even if you change it here, somewhere else it will be archive and recorded (whether Google or the WayBack machine).

This should make it more difficult for spammers to abuse this forum. Good job! :)

You can always contact me to make alterations like this

When I was a moderator, I used to feel a certain sense of satisfaction eliminating auto-join/spammers' threads :). Personally on the editing though, I think 12 - 24 hours is a good window, but that's just me.

Our spammers are quite relentless. Right now I'm spending about an hour a day cleaning this stuff up. :(

And I'm still open to more discussion on the editing. As Richard points out, we'd have no problem modifying or removing a post after that time passes.

Welcome all you new members!

I'm working on manually approving your posts as fast as I can. The faster you get to 15 posts, the easier :) After that, no more manual approving.

Welcome again! Have fun!

Just as an FYI, we've reduced this down to 5 posts.

Out of curiosity. If we start our own thread prior to the 5 post count. We it be posted after manual approval or do I have to re post after I have my 5 post minimum?

It was dropped down to 1 post....I didn't even know it was back up to 5 posts....for 3 years we didn't have any introductory requirement but with some recent spam issues we had to make a few updates....hope to get back to no post requirement to join asap. Thanks!
