no name member bots

Question

Posted

i've been seeing a lot of these (no name) members showing up lately. they're definitely bots & then seem to just post some non english language w/ a link in their status

 

a bit odd because i didn't think there should be a way to sign up without a username

I've done another workaround, created a second "Members" group which people are promoted to after one post and disabled the ability to add status updates for 0 post/no name members in the "Member" group  ;)

 

The promotion only takes place after a member has posted once (regardless of current post count).

 

The two member groups are the same, except for the ability to create status updates for lurkers.

You aren't required to have a member name until you post, that's one of the "bugs" of IPB and Facebook/Twitter connect, we also can't disable status updates for 0 post posters.

 

There is a way to do it, but I have to ask about it first.

What about adding nofollow to all forum links?
