In that case I don't see that this mod is going to be overly useful in combatting spam. It will weed out spammers who initiate a new thread and make one post. However, it will not help catch people who make spam posts as replies to existing threads. I already have a lot of those. This mod (as well ...

So does that mean, contrary to what you said earlier, that approval based on the number of posts is not going to be implemented with this mod? Do not confuse the total number of posts made by a user and the number of posts in a topic. The total number of posts made by a single user is user's own pr...

Is it an idea to allow posts from certain IPs to be displayed immediately, without approval, while posts from all other IPs have to be approved? This is outside the scope and the "philosophy" of this MOD. The idea behind Approval Groups MOD is that the choice whether the post does or does not need ...

Re: Compatibility

I have Anti-Bot Question Mod installed, which modifies Registration procedure by asking a randomly chosen, user defined question. It added several files, changed a few files, added 3 tables and changed no existing tables. Do you believe Approval Groups MOD will be compatible? The Approval Groups MO...

Ok, let's step back and stop mixing it all up. In my previous reply I was talking about the moderators control panel view. Only there yo...

I have about 20 other MODs installed maybe more and no conflicts as yet that i am aware of :) Wow! This is very nice to know. I did not expect this MOD to be that much compatible 8O having the option to approve only on replys to topics (depending if the option is enabled in the ACP) Do you mean you...

I was wondering if you would consider another variation on this mod, namely, approve first post. I already have several of the anti-spam mods installed, and I still get several spam posts a day. The idea is that if the member's first post is not spam, then he is probably OK and you don't need to ap...
