Can anyone suggest a forum/bbs script with decent member administration. I
maintain a website for a community summit - which is all volunteer - and use
one now - but people sign up as members and put porn or other spam links on
the BBS. Free is good - but at this point - anything with decent admin
functions will do.

Hi Richard, not sure what kind of forum script you are using, but many
of the free ones will allow you to assign users to a usergroup based
on their post count. One thing I find useful is to assign users to a
group where all posts from that group need to be approved by a
moderator prior to being posted. After 10 posts, they get auto
promoted to an unmoderated group.

On most sites where I have a forum I use Invision, especially as it
makes things such as this very easy to control. vBulletin has a nice
feature that I wish were available for IPB, through this any member
can be "sent to coventry", that is, their posts are visible only to
themself, nobody else sees it. They simply think nobody is responding
to them and soon get bored and move on. (Great feature, but not enough
to make me change to that forum).
