Default Changing when people can edit their profiles.

In an effort to thwart spambots, I have changed things so that now a user must have

10 rep points (not rep power) OR
5 posts

before they can edit their profile.

Once you have 10 rep points or 5 posts the system will unlock your ability to edit your profile.

Please note the system only checks every hour, so you may need to wait a while after meeting the requirements, but no longer than an hour.

This means nothing for most of you, but I wanted to announce the change.

This MAY be a good idea, alternatively it may be harder to locate and ban the bots. This is a trial.

I guess it depends on how persistant they are, if they can be bothered posting five times xD

Default Re: Changing when people can edit their profiles.

Alternatively, if they have to post five times, they'll either give up or post five times with something that would easily identify them as a spambot, like, "Buy ___ today for only $___!"

That's the way I see it going down, anyway.

Great idea, in any case.

The PM requirement is not what is being discussed here.

The PM requirement is done on almost every forum to prevent bots sending out hundreds of PM's to the members.

This change has nothing to do with the issue you are asking about, and I will not even consider removing the post requirement to PM people, I have seen what it is like.

Your friend can muster up 5 or 10 posts in an area that counts, 2 or 3 in the "new members say Hi here" thread. It isn't that hard.

Depends on how much effort the bots put in.

It should be a good way to make most of them go away. I highly doubt spambots could put five posts in and get rep before they are reported or found. Also I'm tired of alot of people putting all their work into banning spambots >_>

Now this is a good ideas.

And surely AshenREAPER will be undefeated of the Flame of Erasure, because:
Less Bots = Less Boom.

EDIT: ReCaptcha is sometimes passable, because sometimes the code is somewhat clear even to the eye of the bot,

Look at this one:

If he's a bot he's actually having a hard time now, viewing the User Cp for alternate ways to spam.
