Do you use 'Newly Registered' groups?


Apr 21, 2020
I have never set up a forum that uses automatic 'newly registered' groups, but I am now leaning towards doing this for my current project. Mostly this is because there is a large self-promotion opportunity in several areas and the policies will allow for things like posting project links in signatures. I'm considering limiting this somewhat for the first few posts, though I am not sure for how many yet. Currently, I have it set to 10, which I feel is enough that the average user has to engage a bit instead of just making three or five posts as quickly as they can, and that really just limits signatures and posting topics in certain forums. But who knows - maybe that'll discourage people too much.
