Sets the number of seconds an account is required to age before it's given the implicit 'autoconfirmed' group membership. Note that the user must pass
$wgAutoConfirmCount to become a member of that group.
This can be used to limit privileges of new accounts. Accounts created by earlier versions of the software may not have a recorded creation date, and will always be considered to pass the age test.
When left at 0 (the default), all registered accounts will pass.
Some other useful settings:
$wgAutoConfirmAge = 600; // ten minutes $wgAutoConfirmAge = 3600; // one hour $wgAutoConfirmAge = 43200; // half a day $wgAutoConfirmAge = 86400; // one day $wgAutoConfirmAge = 259200; // three days $wgAutoConfirmAge = 86400*3; // three days
