The second one could probably be achieved with 3rd party tools already. The best one I can think of would be IFTTT. Each category has an RSS feed, therefore if RSS feed gets updated. Send email. Full IFTTT support would be great, I'm not sure how that would work, but being able to set up that sort of thing would be bloody brilliant. Maybe even baked into nodebb, so we can set up "tasks" similar to how stamplay.com works. Just with a betteR UI.
How to block registration from invalid emails? New User Registration Spam
We are getting a lot of registrations done through invalid email addresses.
All the registrations are coming from different ip addresses. Of-course we can select and ban the users, but the question is HOW LONG?
One solution can be using captcha for registration, but unfortunately there is no plugin for this!
Do let me know how to stop this?
nodebb-plugin-spam-be-gonedoes exactly what you require. Hooks into project honeypot to check IP against spam database. And has the option for a captcha. (Don't use the captcha, use the honeypot and the Q&A plugin that you're already using)
@a_5mith That's awesome!
