View Full Version : Posting links

06-22-2013, 09:48 AM
It's been awhile since I messed with this, and it appears the board was set to not allow members to post links until 15 posts have been made. This was originally done to prevent spammers from registering, spamming, and then disappearing. The software apparently is non-negotiable and can't lower the limitations.

I have disabled this option and installed a newer version, where it can be specified how many posts must be made, and I set it to 5. This is what I thought it was all along, but I was wrong.

I know it can be a pain for a new member, but the majority don't come here and immediately start posting link after link anyway. And even then, they can write things out for a few posts before posting them normally.

Please let me know if anyone has any issues with the board after I have made this change.
