It had that option, yes. What I did was pm every new member, welcoming them and letting them know that they had a week. It worked half the time and sometimes the new member would never post, at all. I knew whether or not they were robots or spammers usually because of the name they would choose. I also checked their IP and email address. Regular looking email address's like JohnR@yahoo etc were just normal folks, maybe they would post, maybe they wouldn't. Robots always hade names like, yulquiplet < that was one of them. Either way, my member list grew so I liked that

Sorry for the filibuster

The main issue with $$$$ is that we have 12 years of historical posting that we ARE NOT going to lose... so the only real option is to upgrade to the newest VBulletin software...
