Something we implemented on the other forums that I manage is the inability to post a link until you have made 10 posts (mod for it here: http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... &t=1576205). This has resulted in a DRAMATIC reduction in spammers.

Given how heavily spam infested this forum is (you saw what happened this weekend when I was not online the whole weekend), this seems like something well worth doing.

Installed.

Let's see if this is effective.

I was bored and tried this out.

It definitely worked out, the [url]button is removed and when you try and manually use [url][/url] it gives you a nice red error.
