  • We have banned all free email's - can we offer paid subsciption?

    Hi,

    Due to lots of trolling and abuse we have banned all sign up's via free email accounts (hotmail etc). This has dramatically reduced the abuse.

    However, we get quite a few complaints. Would there be a way of charging people a small fee (£5) to sign up with a free email account - would this come out of the box with vB 3.8? Or any other suggestions to verify its not a dupe account or troll?

    Thanks

    There is no option to purchase a subscription unless you are already registered. This requires modifying the code. We cannot officially support code modifications or forums running modified code, however you can try searching or asking for help with this over at www.vbulletin.org.

      Would it be possible to copy the registered usergroup to registered2.
      Then change the permissions for registered so no one can post.
      Then when someone does a paid subscription, they are placed in registered2 automatically.

      IMHO, you are going to kill your forum with a paid only approach.
      There are ways to prevent spam from being posted.
