      Possibly. Will need to discuss with Glenn and Mods in the bunker to thrash it out.

      Not sure if it would work here but the forums that I admin on, when they run a competition, the actual competition link is hidden unless the user has made a certain number of post before hand.

      Then if they click the link and have made the correct amount of post during a certain time they will get access or if they don't the get an error, saying sorry or something.

      But as I admin on IP boards only and I wrote a mod to do this, I am not if it would work here.

      Pretty sure that is already possible.

      I think we could probably look at the posts that are made in future. And if it is obvious that they are just registered for the competition, then they would be excluded.

      Anyway, who said we are running any more competitions?

      It's a great giggle around here, also posters require some help, and thats what I like a giggle and helping people.

      Maybe look at the average amount of posts people make since they have been on here, I dunno 20 a month, then you have to have been a registered member for a minimum of 3 months, then they can enter.

      Why dont you only allow people who have been thanked 10 times in a month, that way at least they have been helpful posts.

      (you can thank me now)

      Some people do not say thanks to helpful posts though.
