[OpSec] Make moderation of first post mandatory

@admins: At least the first post should go into a moderation queue to handle the spam attempts.
I believe the corresponding settings can be made in phpbb admin cp
.

This. I am on one site where you are not told when you will come out of pre-moderation. You get released from moderation when you demonstrate that your posts are relevant to the site and not just things like "I agree". When you join you are told that "your first few posts will be moderated". It cut spam down to almost zero.

Good idea! It took some time, but finally I got it to work. :cheers:

This feature was already enabled but due to some conflicting settings of the user/forum/group/role permissions it never worked. :sweat:

Thanks, MoerkJ! glad you figured it out.
That will spare us those annoying posts (we already have all the fake watches we could ever be looking for :P )
and save the mods some precious time dealing with it.
