New PM restrictions and member group

Recommended Posts

To prevent spam abuse of the PM system I've had to make a few changes. These should have minimal impact on everyone, but I figure I better explain them here to prevent frantic emails and pms.

When a new member is validated he goes into the group "members". In this group he can't use PMs! At this point members of this group can post freely, but if we find that spammers get around this restriction I will set it so that all posts have to be approved by a moderator first.

Members of this group also can't use the email function.

Once these new members have 3 posts under their belt then can then start using the PM system and everything goes back to normal.

Just two exceptions are that I have disabled the mass PM function and have increased the minimum time between PMs to 5 minutes.

Now to the confusing bit. All of you are currently in the restricted members group [Members]. You don't advance to the full members group [Members2] until you make your next post. ie, if you haven't made a post since thursday afternoon then you will not be able to use your PM system till you make the next post. Feel free to spam this thread with 'activation' posts if you urgently need to use the PM system and can't think of anything else to post.

I hope this will keep the PM spammers at bay for a little while although i presume it will probably increase forum spam in the interim.
