    Ok, if you are creating/react on thread and immediately react on an another thread you must wait a couple of seconds but now you have to wait 250 seconds that's really long. I know there are bots that spams on the forum and create tons of "non-Cubecraft" threads. So can't we do something else like:

    - forbid the words: Muscle, medicines, growth etc
    - links except: cubecraft links, ingur , youtube etc. (this is too hard i think)
    - Making 3-5 threads in 1 hour --> block this user for 2 hours
    - creating threads is only possible with e-mail verification
    - decrease the waiting time 250 ---> 30-50 sec
    - have you more ideas?? let it know!

    wait 250 sec is very frustrating if you will react to threads ASAP
    so this is the best idea to hide BOTS and please 250 sec that's a very long time

    1. Make sure links in your forum are set to ‘nofollow’. This tells search engine crawlers not to follow the links and therfore, SEO spammers will derive no benefit from spamming your forum.

    2. Make sure registration includes a CAPTCHA. Captcha’s are those slightly deformed images of words and you see on sign up pages. Captcha’s do a pretty good job of keeping out spam bots.

    3. Require email confirmation before allowing someone to post. Bots and humans can get around this but it’s an extra bit of efforts that most real people won’t mind.

    4. Enable anti-spam plugins. These plugins can automatically detect suspected spam based on links, IP addresses, email addresses and the comment itself. Keep in mind that these plugins are not 100% effective and do sometimes return false positives.

    5. Don’t allow editing of comments after a few minutes have passed. A frequent trick used by spammers is to create a comment that doesn’t look out of place (For example: “This is a great post, very insightful.”) and then will come back after a couple of weeks and edit the comment to include spam links.

    6. Get the whole community involved. Ask members to help out moderators and flag spam.

    7. Be ruthless. Moderators and admins should review the spam queue on a daily basis, ban spammers and delete all their content.

    8. Only allow members that have proven themselves and have a reputation to be allowed to post links. In Vanilla, it’s possible to prevent members with a low Rank from posting links, editing comments, etc. Ranks are earned by accumulating reputation points or making a certain number of posts.

    9. Provide information on advertising and partnering opportunities you might offer and make it clear in your community guidelines what is and what is not acceptable promotion. This can help with accidental spammers who are trying to legitimately sell something to your audience.

    Great ideas coming from google

    Like the ideas, but idea number 3 I don't like. If hou are one on the forums that most more than 3-5 messages in one hour, you recieve a block for nothing.

    I did not mean that. Not messages but Creating Threads.
    you can post unlimited reactions in a thread but you can only creating 3-5 threads per hour

    CAPTCHA was suggested ages ago, honestly I believe it should sort it out.
    I have asked for it as well as I do not think staff enjoy deleting pages over pages of spam bots.
    Nothing happened at the end :p
