Make anonymous posts hidden/moderation by default?

Hi everyone - is there a way to make posts by anonymous users appear hidden by default or go into the moderation queue?


To provide a bit more context, I would like to provide visitors with a text area where they can quickly submit some feedback without actually visiting the forums first. I am planning on using the Discourse API to programmatically create a new post with the visitorā€™s comments, but to avoid spam, Iā€™d like those posts to be hidden by default until a moderator validates and makes them visible :slight_smile:

Just bumping this up. The amount of spam my API posting approach is generating is getting to be quite large.

If we canā€™t make posts made via API be hidden by default, do we know if posts made by the API go through spam filtering?

Could you send the posts/topics to a dedicated category which is set to ā€˜moderator approvalā€™ in the category settings?
