What about implementing that a new user has to post like 5 posts before they can make a thread it would cut down on the spam here which has increased this year.

It's something to consider, though I do so enjoy banning spammers.

You will still get to ban them they are going to post spam in other thread this just limits some of it.

True, but it's easier for me to mass-edit new threads once a spammer's been identified than to go through each thread and do it post by post.

I actually agree with the OP here, that could be a good idea. Though I do see KAS's point.

Well, they can still post and many do. Doesn't matter to them if it is a thread they create or not.

I know but like I said this year it seems a lot of people are signing up and starting new spam threads and then leaving not caring if they get banned.

I appreciate your concern. Spam is always a problem on any message board. I will take this under advisement and I may try your suggestion.
