New Policy for New Users?


Ultima

Recommended Posts

It's really annoying that these newbies just pop into the forum and ask questions that have been answered or request features that have already been requested. Can it be made so that new users can't post new topics unless they have x number of posts? That way, they are forced to search before posting a new topic that's *usually* been adressed already. I was going to propose this a few weeks ago, but held back. Now it's just ridiculous...

Thats a very excellent idea, Ultima. Even putting it in the registration page that they must read faq or have x amount of posts b4 makin new topics because of so many repeated topics.

@tumu:

One site I belong to, they make other sections of the forum hidden until ur first post. Maybe that could be done here, like making the post new topic button hidden until x amounts of posts, until they click on the faq thread or click the use search function thread.

Can we have that warning removed for people with over 50 posts or something? :)

Having an x amount of posts WILL NOT work

Yes, agreed.

But yeah, EliteTorrents used to have this thing where five random questions from the FAQ were asked before you could sign up to the site. And you couldn't really CTRL-F, you had to read the whole thing before you could get in.. :)
