A quick and simple modification for RavenNuke™ v2.5; which adds an additional layer of protection against unwanted Profile and Signature Spam links. New users can still enter their website URL and Signatures, but they will not display to visitors (or search engines) until the user has 5 or more forum posts. Since most spammers won't take the time to write 5 relevant posts, it works as a preventative measure; requiring too much work for the profile spammer to make it worth their time. This also allows site owners to still give "link juice" to respected members while casting the unwanted spammers aside.

Obviously, this is only intended for sites with an active Forums module, so this is not the perfect solution for every site. If you do not use the Forums module, note that there there are options for controlling which fields are viewable in Your Account; in the User ACP. While these edits are specifically done for RavenNuke™ v2.5; with the exception of the Your Account edit, they would probably work for other phpbb-to-nuke installations, although may require tweaking and are untested.

I love this mod buddy. I hate spam as it can get quite annoying and nuke seems to be a spam magnet. Thank you for this.
