How to prevent maximum number of topics per user?

Post by spomsta » Tue Aug 20, 2013 5:31 am

Hello,

I got some registered user which wrote about 10 consecutive topics during the night and this morning I discovered that.

How can I limit the maximum new topics per user? For example, no more than 2 or 3.

I am talking about new topics and not replies.

Thanks

There is really no solution for that?

I think people are wondering why you care. isn't that the whole point of a bulletin board? for people to post on?

If it is a registered member and not spam then I would think you would be happy to have more posts.

And if it WAS spam then you should read this
viewtopic.php?f=46&t=2122696

If not, I can imagine your users getting very frustrated at wanting to write things and not being able to for another 23 hours, by which time they will have given up altogether.

Thanks all for your reply.

The thing is that sometimes some stupid people come to my forum on the night (when I sleep) and they start flooding my forum with about 50 new posts, and I really want to prevent that!

So, there is no effective solution?

They are not spambots, they are real persons.

Some people around me know about my forum and they are jealous, so during the night they register new account and they start flooding creating a lot of new topics with bad words.

I really need a solution to prevent that.

Turn on the new member post limit in user registration settings.

Then all their posts go in to a queue until you approve them.
