    I've always used Usergroup Permissions and Promotions to prevent spam with a high degree of success. Rather than limiting the location of the posts I limit the ability of new members to post anything other than text content for the first ten posts. No links, no images, no attachments, nothing other than text. Any member who makes ten posts under those conditions is very probably not a spambot or human spammer.

    It's not clear exactly what you want to do. More precise detail would help.

    Forcing new users into new user forum

    Hello,

    How do I force new users into a "New Users" forum I have created in order to approve new accounts after they have posted x number of times (without spamming)?
