I'm having a bit of a spambot problem. It's not really bad just yet, but it's starting to annoy me.
Anyways, I'm running PHPBB 3.0.5 and I have JFusion running that synchs userdata via Joomla. Now, installing anything on Joomla is a nightmare as some of you might know as documentation is usually pretty scarce. Nontheless, I manage to get along with it and occasionally manage to get something installed. But I digress.
So until I have the Joomla issues sorted out, I have this idea:
I want any users that have below 1 post to be unable to post new topics.
Three questions arose from that idea:
- Would this work to at least keep the spambots at bay?
- What other simple, non-MOD-related measures can be taken to keep the spambots out?
- How would I go about setting up so that as soon as they have one post, they would get the ability to start new topics? And can this be automated?
