Why not limit thread starters to moderators only. That way they have complete control That is what they want right!

On a serious note: If someone starts a bad thread it drops to the second page in no time with the level of traffic here; so what is the big deal?

Not necessarily. Usually gets locked before that happens. Extra work for the mods.

If it wasnt for the new policy, tonight there would have been 100 new trolly threads started during the 2nd half and 3OT periods.

Right the Suns fans are just all over this place they would surely have started 100 new treads. How did we ever survive before these new rules.

I totally understand why you would make that 100 posts. However I'm not one of those people who spam and I don't post a lot. There has been on 3 occasions I wanted to make a topic but couldn't because 'm not at 100, and ended up going on other Lakers boards to post it. Eventually I'll get to 100 :'(

Can we make all the people with less than 100 posts sit at the back of the bus too? And use separate water fountains? Also, they are not invited to any LakersGround events.


Same thing I was thinking. Posting discrimination. I have a dream, one day...

Serious note, I like the rule.

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.


It's just another deterrent. Having at least something is better than nothing.

I think 100 posts is too much, you will not grow the forum this way. I mean if there is a stupid post have a moderator or voting system ban the post.

I agree this is a dumb new rule.

LarryCoon wrote:
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 padded my post count according to some when posting the news hear so will refrain from starting a thread.

Seems like a reasonable enough policy really.

Your premise therefore is that allowing posters who haven't contributed otherwise (either because they're new or because they're primarily lurkers) to create new threads will grow the community above and beyond their existing ability to participate in current threads. I disagree -- I doubt there's anyone out there who only would have participated via a new thread, and even if there are, they are vastly outnumbered by people following the pattern we're trying to curtail.

You're suggesting that the long-time lurker would finally get off the couch and post if he did it in a new thread, but not by contributing to an existing thread. You're suggesting that a new member would be more likely to add to the community in a new thread than an existing thread, and that this outweighs the primary negative -- new users haven't spent enough time here to understand the protocol, and in their naiveté create new threads they should not have created.

I'm not sure whether the net effect will be to encourage or discourage participation -- you can argue it both ways, and it can only be resolved through careful observation -- but I am sure that it will prevent the kind of participation we want to avoid.

Wow, dude, 25 posts in 7 years. That's gotta be some sort of record.

Perhaps one of your children's children can inherit your account and begin starting threads when you reach the 100 post requirement. By the time that happens, the technology may allow them to simply download their thoughts directly onto the LG collective consciousness. Resistance is futile, you know. One day they will all be Laker fans.

Oh, assuming, of course, the ozone layer hasn't vanished or the talking apes and/or machines haven't inherited the earth.

However, reaching 100 posts does not necessarily correlate to increased intelligence, so we can still be surprised with said posts.

A reasonable next step would be to give all posters over 100 posts the ability to perform a "Citizen's Ban" on any poster deemed to be detrimental to the site--a judgement that will be completely objective, one made exclusively by the troublesome poster's peers in the specific thread, and the fate of posters who are so marked should be presented at a tribunal of ten sub-mods (any posters) who are online at any given time.

A "Citizen's Ban" shall be be enforced by the banned poster's voluntary cooperation in not posting until their fate is determined by the tribunal and the Citizen's Ban shall be reinforced by an actual ban, or, at maximum, death by firing squad.

This policy will make LG the greatest site in the world. Thanks for making it happen.


Why not take it a step further?

Let's have a 24/7 on and off patrol sub-sub mod guard to go around checking each thread for disturbances. Give them temporary ban powers and then call them in front of a sub-tribunal tribunal to see if their actions warrant the attention of a mod tribunal.

Then Lakersground will be the most overly censored and bureaucratic site in the world!

We also need some form of bullets even though this is a virtual world. Maybe we can create some kind of button to "stun" or "taze" the user remotely.

The taze function can be performed by individuals with either a join date before March 2007 or 2000 posts. These arbitrary numbers satisfy me.


I don't like your ideas. Thusly, I'm committing a citizen's ban on you. You may return in 30 years. I hope that you find a place of refuge in the internet's wilderness.
