Spam filter suggestion

Postby TheStrayCat » 2015-12-23, 13:30

Hi all,

To avoid or at least limit repetitive spambot attacks, I'd suggest implementing the following technical restrictions on the site:

1) A user can post external links only one day after their fifth post on the forum. Exceptions can be made for popular harmless sites like YouTube or Wikimedia projects.

2) A user with less than 50 posts cannot make more than five posts with external links per hour.

If this cannot be implemented technically (of course, I don't know how exactly the engine works), we can at least discuss more effective available ways to prevent mass spam.

Any opinions or ideas?
