Default 15 posts before links?

I am assuming you have the "15 posts before you can post links" rule to deter spam...

However a lot of people initially come to a forum with a problem that usually requires the posting of pictures. These people are probably just leaving this site for another, or just posting 15 times about whatever, just so they can post a pic...thus creating more spam then if you just didn't have that silly rule.

Just my 2 cents.

It also does a good job of filtering out the people that can't figure out how to remove the "http://www." part of the link, or adding random/obvious space's to it.

The proper way to fix a S-Series automatic is to replace it with a 5spd O:)

Information Re: 15 posts before links?

I agree the limitation can be frustrating, and I am open to trying out new ideas. I had tested a few spam deterring post options a few years ago, and this one seemed to work the best overall. I'll be testing some new features/ideas with the new forum. I would prefer to do away with the 15 post limitation, but spammers are relentless and I without some protection you would be surprised how fast things get out of hand.

Thank you for the feedback,
Charlie

Some of the other forums I'm a member on have similar limits for pics and/or PM's. (Not that I'm saying the latter is needed here).
