I am creating a custom plugin in nodebb and I want to fetch a list of all authentic and confirmed users over there.
we're getting more spam than actual posts
@Jim-Bridger Maybe overkill for your problem but have you tried setting -> ACP/admin/settings/user -> Registration Type -> Admin Approval?
if that makes it so they can't post, it wont work for me because it will take too long to approve new users. plus we need to see what they will post before approving them
@Jim-Bridger Yep. One of the downsides to the more draconian approaches becoming increasingly requisite modern days of "social engineering" infested community sites.
That is the best I have got. Maybe one of the dev gurus will have more insights.
if this feature doesn't exist, even as a plugin then I am just flabbergasted.
my tiny forum is getting pummelled so hard by spammers that I'm probably just going to delete it, i dont see a way around it.
Enable post queue if you are getting spam. It puts the posts of new users in a queue for approval before they become visible.
im not using reputation, how does it determine what a "new user" is?
If they have no posts they are considered a new user, so until one of their queued posts is accepted all their posts will go to the post queue. If you are not using reputation make sure
Reputation required to bypass post queue is set to 0 or lower.
