[SPLIT] URL post limitations

@golinux maybe it's a good idea to prohibit posts to hold direct links until the user has built up a sufficient "credentials", e.g. by having taken part in a handful of threads, or something?

Re: [SPLIT] URL post limitations

Just a quick context note. The above post was apart of another thread in which a spam thread was created that had a link. As such this response was/is a suggestion to limit the ability of users to post URLs until a certain time.

Also I'm going to go ahead and double post here really quick. As far as I can tell that can not be done on the forums without modifications to the code of the forums that we may have to do ourselves.

Re: [SPLIT] URL post limitations

Please don't restrict the new users in any way, people coming here for help will be frustrated if they can't for instance post a link to an online dump of a log file. Others would game the system just to access these privileges (see for instance the bad example of stack overflow).

I think that measures should be taken at the source first, i.e. making the registration process a tad more difficult for bots.

Re: [SPLIT] URL post limitations

Malinas . . . we're working on that.  We've only had about half a dozen spam posts since we went online because we're nuking spam registrations with a fury!  The registration process will be upgraded hopefully soon.
