Hey Folks, as SFOS is getting some thrive again, I am thinking about possible solutions for Software and Devices categories. System does not require a new solution as SFOS will usually be the same on all devices (at least that was their goal once). So please, any ideas are welcome!

As a way to combat the spammers, is it possible to restrict new accounts from posting links until they've made 5 posts?

I fully appreciate and support this; only if it means that the One-Click Ban stuff will allow the few of us that have that power still to kill off those folks too but safeguard the longer standing members.

Or maybe block creating new threads as a first post (for users with 0 posts).
There is a "Hello" thread here so every non-bot can type that first post right there.

That's an ingenious solution!

Really nice idea but could be technically difficult to implement in the forum framework.
If it is possible, it could be then widely advertised on the forum so that all new members could easily find the information.

IIRC, those posting links weren't bots but actual people so they could very well go spam the hello thread then create new threads.

I think the restriction as proposed by mrsellout combined with our one touch ban should be sufficient.
