It's not that uncommon when new members seeking help want to post a link, particularly when it concerns a forum that's problematic. This restriction on posting links has obviously been quite frustrating for new members since it's been a common complaint.

If or when YaBB's own support forum here updates its software with a stable version (still waiting after a couple of years), a good idea would be to follow Dandello's lead in her test bed of 2.5.4 so that even a guest can ask for help.

To have support be even more user-friendly, this forum shouldn't need to restrict new members from having clickable autolinked urls in their messages (as well as guests). Even though the public isn't able to see it here, YaBB's anti-spam measures are so good that spam-bots are no longer a problem.

You and the other support staff do remarkable work despite the ongoing limitations of this support forum. Smiley

I will say that the post limit before asking a question is a great method to kill off spammers. I think i will try it out with my new forum install.

You can ask a question on your first post. There is no post count before you can ask a question.

However, there is a minimum post count of 5 before a link can be posted. Wink
