Newly registered users by time instead of posts

Post by j3000 » Sun Sep 03, 2017 7:59 am

Is there a way to move users out of the Newly Registered Users group after a certain amount of days instead of posts? The problem with the post count limit is that we're getting a lot of low value, one-line posts where the only content is "nice", "I agree", etc.

We have a buy & sell forum and I'd like to limit new user access to it.

https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... to_groups/ should do what you want, just be aware that you may get a lot of spam posts once you loose the 'first post moderation'

And to add to that, make sure you have a good (non-Googleable) Q&A CAPTCHA question.
