[Forum] new rule to activate signature

Hi,

There are hundreds of fake user accounts on the forum. Users with no post. Users with a signature full of spam. The goal is to generate backlinks to another website.

I have added a rule to prevent from this: user signature can be activated only if the user has posted more than 10 messages older than 7 days.

If a user posts 10 fake messages, he will have to hope they won't be deleted by a moderator during 7 days (which is quite impossible in my opinion).

And by the way: this rule also applies to the "website" field in the user profile.

Spammers, have a nice day.

Re: [Forum] new rule to activate signature

this implies that defining a non-empty hidden field was not sufficient, doesn't it ?

I think we are not fighting against robots.
