Post Queue for the first post only



  • Hi,

    There is post queue for users below certain reputation level. However, it makes more sense if this was only for the first post of the new users.

    We had a spam user registration several days back and he posted more than 100 posts at once with a very regular email address and nickname, we also use Honeypot, StopForumSpam and Re-Captcha. So, clearly he was very motivated to make advertisement of his product 🙂

    There is also waiting time between posts for certain reputation threshold, however we cannot adjust the thresholds separately.

    We would like to keep a reputation level (maybe 5) for waiting time, it makes sense; however really do not need a threshold for post queue, because we started to spend a lot of time for approving posts although threshold is only 1.

    So, I suggest addition of this feature, where we will only approve the first post of the new user, after he/she is approved, then he/she will be cleared. However he/she has to wait between posts till they reach to a certain level.

    I think this settings will make sense to many forums.

  • This is how it used to work before, the reputation threshold only effected the time between posts. Need to split the threshold for the post queue so you can set it to 0. Can you opne a github issue at https://github.com/NodeBB/NodeBB/issues.

    I am sorry, I am new to this, so I would like ask not to make any mistake...

    should I just copy the topic link in the issue? Or should I copy the post above to the issue?



  • Doesn't matter, can just link to this topic from github.



  • Thanks, it is here in case anyone else is interested:

    This is also what happened to us the other day, but in way more topics...

    I think "post queue for the first post only" option makes sense to distinguish between genuine and spam users. The other addition can be preventing sending other posts to the queue before you are approved, because right now when people are waiting for their posts to be approved (reputation level < 1) they think it will facilitate the approval if they keep sending the same post over and over and sometimes in different topics. So, when I get chance to review in the queue, sometimes I have 5 copies of the same posts to the same topic.
