Post length

Post by Thy73 »

I couldn't get the search to work, so i'm sorry if the question have been asked once before.

Anyway, my Q is about post length. Is there a way or thing you can do to make a post certain length, so that a post can't be filled with 200+ lines of spamm or whatever people nowdays posts. That you can deside on how long a post can be or do you need a word/letter counter mod ?

Limiting the length won't stop the spam. The only thing that slows it down is to disable all GUEST posting, or at least installing one of the MODs that requires guests use Visual Confirmation to post. You can then apply the methods listed in link #2 of my signature to limit spammer registrations.
