Before the forum changed from VBulletin to Burning Board last year, the procedure for new members was set up differently. As a new member, you had to have your first 5 posts manually moderated, before being able to post on the forum freely.
This however caused a delay in posts being visible for genuine, new members as it depended on members of crew being around to moderate & ok the posts. But it did cut down on the amount of spam that was seen on the forum. Since the move to BB, this function is no longer enabled and the spam bots are exploiting this loophole.
Due to the smaller numbers of crew that are now around, would TG consider reinstating a similar policy to prevent the multiple spam posts that can be seen almost daily on the forum?
