I want to enable a „low auto-confirmed“ level (leaving common auto-confirmed users intact).
Those users (and IPs) must comply with the following criteria.
- 3 or more edits (in different articles) from this user or IP is older than an hour.
- None of those edits are undone.
- Edits older than a week does not count in neither (1) nor (2).
Achieving this „low auto-confirmed“ level must allow to create one article per day (with captcha). So guest users will be allowed to create articles if they can prove basic competence (at least 3 edits with neither spam nor obvious stupidity).
Due to dynamic IP pool, all data older than a week is obsolete.
Active and competent guest users make way more than 3 edits in a week, but doing such thing is nearly impossible for both spam bots and spam monkeys. It takes much more time than removing their spam articles, so even the most tenacious ones (ones who really can do 3 grammar / other minor edits and wait for an hour) do not pose a threat. It takes much more work for them to spam than we need to remove that spam.
So I want this „low auto-confirmed user“ tier for both new users, and guest IPs(!). Is it possible?
