This is my plan to stop spammers: >new anon IDs are confined to only posting at a /newusers/ board until they have 3 days of activity and some 25-50 posts >/newusers/ posts will not show on frontpage, so there is less incentive to spam >posting and deleting your own post will reduce your post count by 1, so that can't be used as a stealthy strategy anymore >you must post at least X characters per post with a new account so your post count actually increases. This ensures you can't just type "lel" or post an image 50 times and have your post count increase, you will actually have to engage with a thread making it more obvious when something is random spam and when it is not >this only addresses anon ID spammers. IP spammers are dealt with IP ban ranges and are irrelevant to this anti spam measure Do you think this would work at all? Would it be too constricting? If anything, it ensures other boards are clear of spam, even if the /newusers/ one is still a target of it Let me know before I code it

>>24698 I agree, I don't like /newusers/ either, it was just to illustrate a point. I think /newchum/ or /newchums/ is a good one. Unless someone suggests a better name it is what I'll use

>>24702 lel just make it /newfags/

>>24707 but we use chum instead of fags here

>>24692 Is it bots what spam?

Why not just outlaw spamming and 3day ban spammers?

>>

>>24714 because spammers just make a new anon ID

The first step has been taken. All new users will be confined to /newchums/. I still have to code the other rules

>>

>>24719 I think its purdy kewl that a posts txt doesn't appear on the front page from /newchums/ but the pix do.. Encourages board posting while discouraging spammers.

Deleting your own post will reduce your post count by 1 With this spammers should be fully under control for the moment.
