Restrict guest viewing -- possible?


I own a gaming forum (running vBulletin 5.4.2) and was wondering if there is a way to restrict guest viewing.

In other words, after the guest user has clicked on 5 thread pages, their IP is blocked from viewing further pages for, say, 24 hours, and they are presented with a message along the lines of "Glad you're enjoying our forum. Please consider registering to see more".

We see a large number of guests daily who view our forum for tips etc on the games we cover, however this is not translating into membership and participation. In order to grow the forum, it seems logical to incentivize membership.

Any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated.
