Forum spam - approval mechanism?

theallantheallan New
edited December 2011 in Questions

Hello all,

I run a forum that is now starting to see a reasonable amount of spam (I'm deleting about a user per day). I've got the flood control settings quite tight and the Stop Forum Spam plug-in enabled, but still there is a fair amount of spam coming through.

I was wondering about writing a little plug-in that would run the posted content through a spam filter and either allow the content to be posted on the forum or add it to a queue for moderator approval.

So my question is, is there already a mechanism available in Vanilla for queuing comments and new discussions, with moderator approval pending that I can effectively hijack for this?

Thanks, Allan
