PostPosted: Mon Mar 07, 2011 11:57 am    Post subject: Minimum post count before starting a thread

All,

We are currently experimenting with a new feature that requires users to have at least 100 posts before they can start a new thread. After we gauge the effects of this feature we will decide whether to keep it, remove it, or change the minimum post count.

Users who pad their post count in order to get to 100 will be dealt with in the harshest manner allowable. Consider this your one and only warning not to pad your post count.

I think it's a great feature and I hope you don't remove it.

Thanks, LC and LG staff for making this happen!

I think it should be either length of time as a member should be a year, or 100 posts, which ever comes first.

Also, is it possible that we can ask a mod for approval before starting a thread, and we get permission to do so?

What about post padding to get to 10k?



Serious though. Great idea.

100 post rule is King! I think other boards should learn from this masterful move.

This is good news. Devil's Advocate: anyone (especially a Laker hating troll) can participate in a game thread and have at least 20 posts. It would take about 5 games or so to reach the magical number of 100 - thus giving a troll free reign to post threads that causes division within LG. I hope that in addition to the minimum post count the intent of these posts are also considered (i.e. are the posts trying to incite a rise out of true Laker fans on this board). I'm just saying...good news regardless.

Good and Bad.

This sucks because the new fans that want to say hello with a new thread won't be able to, and also, long time lurkers won't be able to come out of the shadows and make some of their very good posts.

But it does get rid of the trolls, i guess.

20 posts?

You can get to high 40's in one game, very doable.
