    Re: Great Forum Idea

    Well random idea........since I've noticed that a lot of those spam posts occur late at night(my time), is it possible to maybe do iTunes' idea between like 1-6am? When not that many people are online/active........

    That's actually a bad idea, there are over 12,000 topics so your telling me in the span of another 8 months 7 admins will have to make way and approve 12k+ topics? Little much for me.


    Y.O.L.O

    On the other side of things Star's idea is good, but also has problems. I feel some new members have a lot of useful information and it would be nice for them to be able to make a thread and contribute. At the same time it would stop those people/computers from posting those "How to convert iPod....." threads. Which is a huge plus. I think it could be different for each section. Like in order to create a thread in the "Introduce Yourself" section you should only be able to have up to 10 posts. Meaning after you make 10 posts you can no longer create a thread there.

    Or maybe for every other section besides Latest News/Introduce Yourself it could be up to 25 posts to create a thread like you suggested before. But for those two sections it could be different.

    Introduce Yourself: 1-9 posts [Once you have ten you can no longer make a thread. And you can only make one thread in that section period, this will stop the ability to spam that section.]

    Latest News: 100+ Posts [More news from trusted people. Less bullshit spam or false news.]

    Every Other Section: 25+ [This will stop bullshit pointless threads, but not completely unfortunately]

    Just a little outline I created real quick to get my point across. Thoughts.

    EDIT: Also I believe that vBulletin supports these features. Just sayin...
    Really pushing for the vBulletin Artille lol.
    You're idea sounds real good though..
    Nice Idea Artille

    Its a terrible idea
    no one with over 1-9 posts will make a thread in there anyway
    just say some one with 67 posts found out CIV tracklist he cant post it in latest news so thats another dumb idea
    in all other topics its a forum if someone wants to make thread then let them
    The whole point of forums is to talk who would sign up to a forum which doesnt let you start threads immediatley

    Instead of only criticizing my idea, why don't you help me construct a new one or we can make modifications to it. Never said it was a set plan, so I'm not worried about whether or not people like it. Many forums have stuff like this btw, because certain sections are off limits to "noobs". On some forums you can't even view a section if you don't have enough posts/rep, like our Downloads section.

    As for no one making a thread in there with 1-9 posts, that is wrong. Every person (almost) that makes a thread in there to introduce themselves does not have any posts. I guess I should make it 0-10, would make more sense.

    Please, to anyone, help the forums and help us formulate new ideas.

    @EC_Frankenstein - I agree bro, what you said makes a good amount of sense and like I said it's fine us Mods doing what we do now.

    @Artille - It was his opinion so he can criticise it all he wants.

    I see a few people once a week that post in there that are new. It would cut down on spammers posting useless topics in more busy sections like Latest News..

    The move to vBulletin would obviously take a little time, but it'd be worth it IMO
