As some may already have noticed we have implemented a waiting period of three days for new users, during which only posts to the Newbies Area are allowed. This was done in an effort to cut down spam, and give the newcomers time to read the forums and maybe have their questions answered before asking them.
While this cuts down some of the spam, today someone registered a couple of weeks ago posted a couple of spam threads.
The question is simple - pick the combination of waiting features you'd like to see enforced. After they are in place, we will start to prune and cleanup the forums a bit more.
