  • [Forum] Automatic Moderate Post

    Here's my set up

    - I have GlowHost Spam O matic mod installed
    - I already disabled auto-moderate and akismet
    - Newbies Manager: Put New User Into Newbies Group? Yes
    - Newbies Manager: Newbies Group ID : 9 (This is the newbies group)
    - Newbies Manager: Auto-promote Users From Newbies To Trusted/Registered Users? Yes
    - Newbies Manager: Trusted/Registered Users Group ID : 2 (This is the registered users group)
    - Newbies Manager: Promotion From Post Count: 3

    How come all of the newly created threads from the new user still go to "moderate threads" ?? Even if more than 3 . I dont want them to go to moderate threads because I dont have time to check or validate them. I want the new user just post replies or create new threads and then if they reach a certain number of posts they will become registered user automatically... I need your help

    Thanks

    The software is doing the right thing.
    Spammer comes,creates "certain number" of posts,becoming a member without restrictions?

    You or your moderators have to have the time to validate those "certain number" of posts.


    vB5 is unequivocally the best forum software, but not yet...

        Unfortunately the answer is NO.

        Switching off validation is the only way to solve your problem.

          how?

          what if you have 10 posts a day? and you miss checking them for 2-3 days? Where is your time to go through all their posts and check them?
