Question, how did you implement this? Reason I'm asking, is the message that you show in the screenshot should not - in my opinion - ever be visible. :-) I wrote this for a client, and here's how the specification worked out...

When a guest views a topic, they can only see the poll results.
When a member with < required posts views a topic they too can only see the results
When a member with >= required posts views a topic they have not voted in, then they see the voting options, with the choice to click a "view results" link to see the current results. This is standard phpbb.
When a member with >= required posts views a topic they have voted in, they only see the poll results.

So there's no reason to show a "you need x posts" to vote if you never show them the voting options. :-) Of course you need to check on the vote side, to keep someone that knows the phpbb structure from passing in a vote via some background process rather than going through the forums.

Anyway, just a few thoughts I have to share. :-) Not intended as a criticism, just a suggestion for something to consider. If you check you'll see that it's very very easy to write this way as well. ;-)

Good idea! At the moment it just checks in posting.php, if $mode is set to 'vote', it displays the error.

Good point there :)

I'm not sure, as that's a pretty big MOD. But as mine doesn't change so much, there's a good chance, that it works ;)

Thanks for the MOD man. Does it also work with 2.0.19?
Is there any MOD like this one -> Minimum posts before sending a message?

It will probably work with 2.0.19, but there is no excuse for using an outdated version of phpBB. Also such MODs exist, look for yourself: http://david.smigit.com/mdd/?keyword=mi ... opment=yes
