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.

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

I'm convinced Matty paid that poster to start such an asinine thread, just to prove his point...

Re: new thread probation

How about for those unsure of the use of a thread, PM a mod for their approval.

Re: new thread probation

Yeah, don't hesitate to ask us questions. Remember we may not always get you an answer right away though.

But at the same time, don't use us as an excuse for not knowing the rules or lacking common sense. We're not here to babysit you

Re: new thread probation

I'm really gonna miss all the "Omg! The Skins Front Office Sucks/Dan Snyder should suck a railroad spike" threads.

..I guess I'll just have to deal with the parking lot threads for my main source of entertainment now.
