I like the archive idea for old forum posts. Just need to make sure it searchable.
The new forum needs a 3rd party section for all the add-ons.
Not sure about the zero post idea. Yes, a lot of them will be spam bots & it’ll probably be easiest to just delete those accounts.
It might annoy a few people but I can’t really think of a way to determine spammers from legitimate accounts.
Are you able to change me from a forum mod to a global mod on this forum? There’s a few repeat visit spammers I’d like to ban.
