I think it could be an useful feature to be able to report users themselves, not only their spamming posts...

Good Idea! :thumbup:

I think we need a limit on posts. For example, a user can only post 2 Topics an hour or somthing like that. I know it could be annoying for people who like to post often. But maybe you could limit reply's to posts to 3 An hour. And new topics 2 An hour. :)

That actually doesn't seem like a bad idea. Honestly I post like 0.1 times a day, so no problem there. I only think it could come in bad if you haven't been on in a while and you check the new posts to see a bunch of threads you want to slap replies on.

Isn't possible to put a Captcha system to confirm the login, or to confirm a post ?, wouldn't be more effective :-? ?

Lol. True, it is pretty weird =)

But yeah, normal Captchas should do the trick

The new captcha buttons should also work :)

I hate Wheatley and GLaDOS, except when she turns into a potato. I guess Wheatley was also nice until we plugged him into the mainframe. Hm, maybe I shouldn't have "plugged that little idiot into the mainframe"

You're right - and on the forum where I stole this idea from, that's an issue. The trick is to set the number of posts really low, like five posts or so. Most spammers sign up, post once, and go away forever. It's just a minor annoyance for anyone else, because they can just post four more times.

I saw one on another forum that posted 3 or 4 before leaving. 5 is a safe number.

Shoulda work to inject new life into it then, Maybe changing into something similar to RTSL integrating the Discord server, and turn the forum area into an archive for information =/.
