Spam prevention


Edited: Nov 13, 2018

I don't think Wix forum has adequate Spam prevention. I would like new posts (ie the first post) from new users to be approved by admin

Can we get a disable function on this feature? Or maybe an automated function?

@Paul Phillips That's a great idea, but I think it's not a feature that's important on a lot of people's forums. It's also hard if you have a lot of members who post frequently. Let's say in a minute people on your site make 50 posts, you will have to go through all of those 50 posts and accept or deny them (read all of them when some can be long). Wix can maybe make something "AI" so it can go through and read them and detect words or to know if it's spam. I have seen spam posts on this site though with like Nerve damage stuff and medicine, which has nothing to do with this site. ;)

I am only referring to the first post from a new member. It's unlikely you will have 50 new members in a day. Once their first post is approved, they would be like any member and posts can be made at any time.
