    Blocking first time posters in the sales threads

    Can you not configure the sales threads so that users have to have so many posts (30 +)or have a user account for some many months... It just stops cr@p like this getting on the forums Classifieds: ONLINE WORK FROM HOME JOB, DATA ENTRY JOB ONLINE ADPOSTING JOB, ONLINE COPY & PASTE HOME BASED J

    Seams madness that people can just create accounts and post any old rubbish, if a member has been on here for x amounts of posts or time then there is less chance of being ripped off by users only posting to sell things.

    the VBulletin software has the option to stop people without a minimum post count posting in the for sale section

    I thought there was a 10 post minimum... doesn't stop all spam though, people just post random rubbish to reach the post count and then spam the classifieds. I guess it stops bots, but there are plenty of other ways of doing that.

    We used to have that in place but with various software upgrades it is gone
