    Most of you guys will automatically be moved from the "Registered Member" to the "Legit Member" group in the next little while. Other than the group name change, everything should stay exactly the same in terms of how the site works for you.

    The "Registered Member" group is the default group users enter when they register for DSP. Once all of our real users transition to the "Legit Member" group, I'll be redefining the permissions of the "Registered Member" user group in an attempt to reign in the spammers. New members' posts will be subject to moderation until they reach an approved post count of 5, at which point they'll automatically join the "Legit Members" group.

    Hopefully this will discourage the spammers. Let me know if anyone has trouble using DSP over the next couple hours/days.

    No, just an "inscrutable" group for you.

    Good call, thanks for looking out for DSP

    I might set the bar higher than 5... maybe 10 posts
    though it seems that most spammers only post up to 3 times so maybe 5 is safe
    still 10 isn't so much different when someone actually has something to say

    IMO

    Right now their posts are have to be approved by a mod before anyone sees them, and only approved posts count.
    So they could spam 100 posts; they won't get promoted until 5 of their posts are manually approved.
