    I dare say this has been discussed before but in an attempt to minimise the spammers can a system whereby a new member cannot post a link for say their first 10 posts be introduced? Its fairly common on other forums so why not on here?

    I concur, its is usually several posts before links can be posted on most forums.

    That facility doesn't currently exist, there are a couple of things in the pipeline that will cut spam down still further. The no links for new members is something we'll look at for the future though.
