That was a pita, not done much coding on the forum lately so forgot whats what  :stupid:

Anyway in theory spammers will only be able to create two posts now per registered account.
Should limit the amount of posts the moderators have to remove.

It would help if a few people could create a new account and test.

Tired   :fighting2:

Also please let me know if i've broken something.

Has this made a little difference guys? I've had a little look through the logs and spammers have not been able to post more than 3 post.
