I been reading the rules and such. Does this mean a newb like me can post pictures now - before having 10 posts? I know that the software offers several options to control what gets posted. I think you already use automatic usergroup promotion to allow PMs after 10 posts. But as someone else said, a new member can benefit greatly by being able to post a picture of their project or problem. And as you know, some drive-by DIYers only post a few messages until their issues are solved.
So, that pretty much leaves the moderator approval method. I'm guessing that's what you're doing, according to the quote above.
As far as the 60 second wait between reporting posts, that's another variable in the admin CP. But 60 seconds isn't that bad, unless you are trying to report every single post a spammer made since they joined. It's usually not necessary to do that. The mod or admin will prob'ly check other posts a spammer made and deal with the culprit after their investigation. Letting them know about one of the spammer's posts should be sufficient.
Oh gee, too bad the 10 post rule isn't based on word count instead. I'd be well past the limit already.
