TOPIC: New Members + First Post

Re: New Members + First Post 8 years 5 months ago #15518

After some recent discussions on how to prevent spam at Digital DIY, a solution came about which will change how the site operates for new members.

A new member can post a topic or enter discussions, although their content will be queued for moderation approval. Their account will be upgraded with normal forum privileges after one post has been approved. The time it takes for a moderator to do this may vary; though it shouldn’t be too long given a few people have put their hands up to help.

Just in case your wondering - a message is displayed for any content that is submitted and requires moderation. New members are not left in the dark wondering where their post has gone!

This should prevent almost all spam from going public on the forum. Thank you to those that volunteered to be Queue Moderators, I really appreciate it.
