    Creating New Threads

    Every morning I wake up and find someone from East Pakikurdihimilayistan posting idiotic spam threads.
    Is there some way to limit who can create new threads by post count and/or membership time?
    So that anyone with only 6 minutes of GMI time can't create these idiotic threads?
    Also if you can lock out anyone with the words Ed, Truckm, hunchm, andre, and 2007 in their user names,
    it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    plane

    ps. Yeah, this is radical, but it makes so much sense.

    "The car's brilliant and ... a great surprise, pleasant surprise for all Corvette lovers everywhere ... a huge shock to our competitors ... because I don't think anybody was expecting something that good. What pleases me the most about it was that ... I can say this is the first car that's come out, that was done since I left.

    Evidently our administrators are looking into this matter, but I agree, it's a serious nuisance.

    It is annoying but a lot of people come here for help so making a post minimum would suck. Maybe if their is a way to let new posters make threads in certain sections and have to get a post count for the rest if that is possible. That way they can make a thread asking for help or introducing themselves without having to bump a bunch of threads for post count.

    Another option if technically possible could be moderating new threads if the user has less then X amount of posts. What I mean by that is the thread doesn't go live onto the forum until a mod okays it.

    Actually, I'm more interested in the second half of the request.

    I'm loving your sarcasm today, thanks for the chuckle, but I think you are going about your troubles the wrong way.

    You've heard of the saying; "before we fix it we have to differentiate the problem from the symptoms, and fix the problem"

    Alter the first part of your daily routine, and everything will be a lot better, for all...........

    Thanks Ed for the kind thoughts. Just installed a bs filter on my laptop.
    It looks like some of your post was cut off.

    Not sure what I'm missing from your post, but fairly sure you can keep it for yourself.

    Hmm, that sure was an untimely install, not to worry, I have an idea! - Just for you, I've typed it all backwards, this should get past your filter:

    nope
    it's becuz (afaik) you've only told me about the problem with your acct & I can't fix it
    (guess neither of us communicate much with those who COULD fix it )
    +
    I can't really tell which you want more
    -- getting it fixed
    or
    -- complaining about it
