    So you propose they hide the spam in threads making it harder to find and remove rather than a big top of the forum fresh thread we can spot instantly and pull?

    no just thinking it would detour some of the spammers if they noticed they couldn't post right away...

    Good idea! 300 posts minimum should just about do it.

    It's a bot, you can't deter a bot. Not since the invention of the internet has someone actually taken the time to register by hand and spam a forum. The bot registers, attempts a thread, then defaults to a post if it can't do a thread.

    You realize that there are a good percent of users that join to post a thread asking a question then leave and never come back. While we wish they would come back, we still want to help them. Not be jerks and be like oh uh post 30 times and then i'll help you. In which case they will post 30 useless posts since they are just noobs that need help, then post a thread. Which in the end would result in more spam and less people helped....

    I didnt want to totally crush your idea but there is no way it could work.....

    The search function on this site is lacking so a lot of first time posters do so because of it.

    lol
    i figured out why the op wrote this thread. I did some research and looked at his first thread, i was looking to make a mockery of his first thread lol which was also his first post. But instead i found that his first post/thread was spammed and he felt it wasnt handled well. So that explains why he made this over reaction strict suggestion


    I could be sherlock holmes

    Infact i would like my title thing to be "sherlock holmes" rather than green apple lol

    never said it wasnt handled well - i just expressed it in a pm to one of the moderators that the report link could be more of a report link (add text next to it) instead of a small icon that most people over look - and i really dont think this is an over reaction thread considering the post you are refering to was made in march of this year --- my suggestion is not one that has never been done before or uncommon - it is merely a suggestion - if you dont want suggestions - then close the forum category
