Prevent Forum posting by non-members until completed 5 games

Postby clangfield on Wed Dec 18, 2013 4:53 pm

Concise description:
  • Stop people creating new accounts just to post abuse and get busted

Specifics/Details:
  • I'm sure you know who I mean...(a nod's as good as a wink, as it were)

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • Will avoid repeated abusive posts by previously banned players
  • Hopefully avoid wasting mods' time by having to bust the same idiot regularly

I'd doubt you could tie games completed into posting rights but new posters can certainly require mod approval for x number of posts before their posts automatically can be visible to all on the forum.

It is a style of bulletin board that is used all over the net... The majority of "public forums" use this free service. It is not tied to Conquer Club...

But that takes a person to just moderate that all day every day.

I don't think this would be a problem, technically speaking. Even if it were, that's not a reason to not submit this.

However, I think that NR's should be able to post. Often, they have questions or other issues. That is a reason to not submit this.

A reason against this would be to exclude NRs might make them feel left out and quit before the 5 games are completed.

So what's to stop him from making two accounts, playing 5 games of doodle earth against himself, and then posting?

Against this, people should be able to ask questions.
Not being able to post on forum could annoy several new players.

REJECTED

We are trying to make New Recruits feel more welcome. Not allowing legitimate newcomers post isn't a good stance to take when questions are there from a lot of people.
