Disable newbie PM until X number of posts


I've recently installed the MonkeyStop Keyword and URL Moderation mod and I'm impressed. It's a great help in catching rogue posts even in the middle of threads.

Anyway, I was wondering whether something similar is available to stop users being able to use the PM facility for X number of posts (or some other timeframe).

Recently we've been getting people complaining of getting those old "Nigeria scams" via PM.

Is there anything out there to combat this sort of thing?

Many thanks,

Red ;-)

Can't Use Private Messages Before X posts

Its for version 3.54 but I am still using it on 3.64

And it works a treat
