Moderation (approve/unapprove) of posts available?
Does the newest version of YaBB, or perhaps a mod, include the options to moderate posts, e.g. to have posts submitted but put into a moderation queue?  Then, a moderator/admin could go through and approve posts or delete them; unapproved posts would not be visible to the public.

The reason I ask is for combatting spam... although we've managed to cut down on the spambots severely, there are still a few that slip through. I'd like to be able to auto-moderate certain posts to prevent this kind of spam.  For example, users with fewer than X posts (say, 10) would have all posts with links or certain keywords go into auto-moderation.  This way, regular users would not be impacted too severely, but spammers would have their messages not be shown publicly.

This is already possible on vBulletin, for example, where moderation is built-in; there's a plugin available for auto-moderation based on certain criteria (which works as described above).  I'm hoping that this is already available, or can be made available, in YaBB.  I really need an easy way to keep the spam posts from being publicly viewable.  (The vB/plugin method works great on one of my other forums, but I'd rather use YaBB than vB!)

Re: Moderation (approve/unapprove) of posts available?
this sounds like a darn good idea where allocated board mods can accept or reject postings based on content instead of having an admin delete an unwanted post.

Would imagine a "number of posts before unmoderation" setting would be easy enough based on previous postings in a "post count" enabled board.

I would see this NOT as a boardmod, but a standard feature for next release or certainly take a vote on it!

tim

Re: Moderation (approve/unapprove) of posts available?
we will have to keep bugging you lot then until !

As a general rule of thumb, does the boardmod stuff get incorporated into new releases or does it remain purely  a boardmod thing ?

Would love to see some more features, not that its short of many of course Smiley

Love the spellcheck thing - awesume lol

regards, Tim
