  • moderating Registered user first postings

    Hello Everyone.

    I use BBulliten v3.8.1

    After all the security of registration I had a user post porn into my forum.

    Is there an easy way to moderate registered users first posting?

    Its probably in the manual (somewhere) but I cannot find it.

    In the Yahoo newsgroup I had a mechanism where I moderated users first posts and then ticked a box in their user profile which stated that posts from that point onwards were OK.

    Can someone help me.

    Use the "promotions" system, I use it to do the very same thing but I have it set for 5 posts..

    To do this I created a new usergroup (Fully Registered) where I put all my existing users, then created a new user group (Registered) and moderated their posts and then after I'm happy they are genuine the promotions system would then move them to the Fully Registered usergroup.

    Very effective and I've caught loads of spammers but as there posts are moderated the posts are not publically seen.
