    I vote for the top option, as it keeps un-necessary posts away from the forum, it helps it stay clean and doesnt cause alot of spam...my vote is on keeping it...it only takes a little while to get past...and its to see if your worthy or not,as i said before...i like it

    I think it does help, but I know that it adds more work for the moderation team :)

    You need to log out then back in for it to change your usergroup. The cron job runs every 15 minutes so if it doesn't change your group when you log in, you need to give it a few more minutes. If you need help setting this up on your own forum, let me know.

    ok thank you, on 3.8.7 though i should be able to get somthing like this working using advanced permissions based on post count right? and have a usergroup IE: Noobs (under 2 posts) with like no permissions, and moderated. then have members with a little better permissions, and as for the text and notice box that would just be a matter of adding the if is member tags to what ever i want the "Noobs" to see =)

    I actually hated it at first. I kinda like it now though when I understand the whole meaning of it.
    It's a great way to stop spammers indeed.

    Is there a download link somewhere?

    It's custom. I haven't released it to anyone or made it a mod yet. Looking for someone to do it for me ;-)
