First Post Approval
 
Something I just saw on another forum (non-Steelers)... They have to approve a member's first post. It's another layer of spam protection.

Just a thought to prevent the spam instead of having to clean it up later.

it would also be effective to weed out the assholes that just show up to bitch after a lose.

Actually, that's in effect right now. All members are approved before being able to post. Sometimes we'll let one through, we are human, but it's been a little better. :chuckle:

I'm talking about their first post, not joining. I'm guessing it would be a little easier to spot spammers (or trolls) than just going off of their IP, email, and username.

I'm not sure if that's a vBulletin setting that exists, but i'm pretty sure there's a plugin for it. I'll look into it and if the plugin is safe this idea may be put to use. Thanks for posting! :drink:
