Hey, I'm a member of a few other forums too. On Head-Fi (audio equipment), they implement a minimum post requirement (15 within a "new arrivals" section) on new members before they are allowed to post anywhere else.

Would cut out a lot of the "almost real fake money" adverts around here.

Just a thought.

It's a good thought, but at the moment I think we have spam under control. We block a lot of IPs from potential spam areas, we have quite strict registration process, where the member needs to answer a question about table tennis to get through (which stops most spammers), and we have an active team of moderators that kills off spam almost immediately. :rock:
The method that you describe is inbuilt in the software, but risks potential new (genuine) members from posting as they can't work out what to do, so I don't think we need it as yet.
