Isn't too much to wait for a week to have a signature ads or to advertise a forum? especially for a promotion forum?
Is it possible to reduce the days count to 5 at least?

Perhaps you should clear up your suggestion in a way where it is not stated as a question. Also you need to add a poll for voting otherwise it won't get far. Wink

But my own thoughts on this... I don't think the week wait time is so bad. It encourages members to stick around some and participate in the forum. Not just drop their advertisement and run.

This could lead to members advertising their website/forum, leaving for a week and then coming back to 'bump' their thread. I actually think dropping the wait time is a good idea, as it will not only keep members coming back more regularly, it will also be better for AR.

If it was my choice, I would have the wait time at 2-3 days.

On my forum for example, I allow members to reply to their advertisement threads every 24hours.

Hey everybody,
Here is the standstill on this. This feature is a spam countermeasure. So here are the options, either members wait 1 week before being able to post links, or we disable this feature and they can post them instantly. i cannot change the time to 24 hours or anything of the sort. It is either 7 day wait or instant link access. If you are all willing to have this changed then I will go and change it.

Is this what you want?

I don't see the problem with allowing members to post links straight after registering. If you have enough anti-spam measures in place, not many will get through the registration process anyway. Also, we have a great moderation team, so spam isn't a problem as it will be removed straight away.

That's my opinion, what do others think?
