Require minimum (5?) posts before being able to include links

Used to be that in order to post links, members here had to have at least 5 posts. This was meant to cut down on spam.

With one of the recent forum updates, this restriction was (unintentionally?) removed, and I've noticed an uptick of spammers taking advantage of this.

Like here.


So... any way you can reinstate that restriction?

Actually, it was a vBulletin add-on, and there are (at least) three that would be compatible with this newer version of vBulletin.

Allow URLs in posts only after a minimum number of posts (to reduce spam)
MonkeyStop - Auto-Moderation of Spammer Keywords and URLs by postcount
Cyb - Advanced Permissions Based on Post Count



(While we're on the subject, yet another spammer's here tonight.)

This feature would drastically reduce your work load.... as would the ignore thread feature.
