Status Update Spam


Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a way to avoid this?

Something like requiring a specific amount of posts or otherwise?

99% of the new users are coming in to spam us through the Status Updates, and apparently the Spam Check doesn't seem to work anymore (i.e., the thing this is supposed to protect our forums from spammers that was supposed to be awesome when announced last year or the year before).

The spam service only protects you to the extent of how you have it configured... If you are letting Code 2 / 3 members register, then you're the one letting them through..

Create a new join group that doesn't have status update priveledges... After X posts, you can auto-promote them into a 'full member' group that does have status update priveledges.
