thread making privs

Can't you guys modify privs such that you have to have 50 replies or so before being able to make threads? It's not unreasonable, and maybe the babe forum will get cleaned up a bit because it's being pseudo-spammed by sitepimps. thanksnocareamirite

This should be brought back. More and more site-pimpers are showing up (or least that's what it seems like from the ban log).

One month sounds good, but one month combined with 50 replies is even better for weeding out site pimp assholes.

You're right. That does sound better.

And here's why. 22 scammers, spammers, and site pimps in about 2 weeks.






It'll also cut down on the dupes (although the power rangers and the turtles were mildly amusing).

used to be like that, i guess sanjay wants people from the crowdgather forums to join and start making threads but in turn this has lead to a shitload of spammers, meh, they all get banned eventually.

It's a site with 343,000 users. Of course it's going to get spammers. And fifty posts will just mean even more dumbasses spamming.

But, isn't 50 shit posts better than 50 shit threads?

If you talk about one user, sure. But in the time since sanjay announced his crowdgather initiative, I think we've registered close to ten thousand users. So, a half a million shit posts. Even assuming only 20 percent of that are spammers/trolls, that's a hundred thousand shit posts. Time requirements are good, like waiting a month to make threads, because it forces the individual to lurk more. As far as site pimpers, well... that's why we have supermods and the toilet.

Shit. I didn't think it was that many.

I doubt the spammers would have the patience to stay registered for a month and make 50 no contribution replies. The stubborn fuckers would stay, but most of them would be weeded out.

This does pose a problem for regular crowdgather members though as they wouldn't have such patience either. fucked if you do, fucked if you don't.
