    Really?
    I just got a free API key and entered it into my test-board, and it doesn't seem to trigger. This clearly isn't the place, but I'd like to know what, besides entering the API key, needs to be done for it to take effect so it can be tested.

    What exactly are you expecting it to do, and how do you know its not working?

      I'm creating posts and threads with apparent spam content.
      As far as I understand, those should be catched by Akismet and placed under moderation (or so the vB docs claim ).

      Am I mistaken?

        You're doing this as an administrator user? Why would an administrator's posts be filtered?

          Of course not.
          It's a regular user, silly.

          And the threshold is set at 1 million posts, just to make that clear as well. The default was 0, which means none would be filtered.

              Actually 0 tells the system to scan all of the user's posts.

              If a non moderator usergroup has less than this number of posts then all content will be scanned by the Anti-Spam service for possible signs of spam. A value of 0 will scan all posts.

              I don't have it enabled on my site but it works on this site. Doesn't catch every spam post but does catch quite a few.

                  Hmm, that's odd.
                  This setting controls how many of a user's posts will be scanned by the Anti-Spam Service. Once a user's post count exceeds this threshold, his or her posts will not be scanned for spam content.
                  A value of 0 would mean that the user exceeds the minimum even at 1 post, wouldn't it? I agree 0 could either mean off or all, but then the inline help text should be amended.

                    Sorry for going offtopic:
                    (or so the vB docs claim )
                    which docs are you referring to?

                      The help-text accompanying the setting. I quoted the on-screen portion above.

                            I agree, the inline should be changed.

                            However when opening the help page...
                            (yoursite.com/forums/admincp/help.php?s=&do=answer&page=options&pageaction=options&option=vb_antispam_posts)
                            ...it says "A value of 0 will scan all posts."
