We both know that is not true. But this might finally stop people from making dumb threads.

Re: new thread probation

How about implementing a system where a Mod can approve the start of the tread before it posts instead of assuming that every single user will be able to follow this direction. It would be easier if a handful of people patrolled the masses, not to mention Mods have a better idea of what has already been (and will be) posted.

then the mods would get like tons of messages then they would have to read every single one and the aprrove or disapprove them. I wouldnt wish that on my worst enemy

Re: new thread probation

Well, I am the first one who was begging for something like this.... but I hope that people get warnings ... not just in the threads, but in PM's.... Would hate to be kicked off of here... I just love everyone on here so much... I mean... your like family to me... I just love everyone....:vomit:

OK... maybe that was to much to shovel... but I do hope warnings are given.

Nobody is getting kicked off, that's not what this is about. This is simply about losing the ability to create new threads for those that can't handle the responsibility of it.

Probably not.

It depends. We'll look at all situations on their own. I'm not saying anyone who posts a duplicate or questionable thread is going to get dinged. We typically try to give everyone a chance to straighten out.

Re: new thread probation

Matty, maybe you should take just a moment to give a few examples of just what is considered a "worthless thread" It has become apearent that the people who post these type threads don't know the difference.

I think one previous poster gave some examples of the type threads you're refering too, but they would be better served hearing it from you.

Re: new thread probation

Don't know if you can do this or not...

But for those under 1,000 posts or something like that... you should temporarily redirect the user to the search page, or some kind of "Are you sure your not posting a retarded thread?" pop up message...

If people are too lazy to use google, they're probably too lazy to read the forum guidelines. This might be able to curb some of the duplicates and such...

Re: new thread probation

I never understood the obsessive desire for thread creation. I think I've created maybe 5 threads since joining this site -- maybe.

If I was the only person responsible for creating new topics, I'd could probably only think of 10% of the topics we already have available for discussion. I guess it's just me, but there is hardly ever a topic that I want to discuss which isn't already being discussed here.

Some people here are like those in the media who want to be first to report something they think is of interest, whether it actually is or not. It's just that satisfaction they get from the feeling of being first, to the point where it becomes an obsession.
