I won't be here tomorrow, so I thought it may be a good idea to ask the public, should we:

Make forums readable to ONLY registered users?

and

Make a VIP section? Maybe for torrent links to full ciders, or maybe a few other bits and bobs, not sure yet..

Please post any ideas and comments as a reply to this thread thank you! I will be back in two or three days and if you want either of these, or have any other suggestions, I might put them into action!

Thanks,
~loco

I think making a VIP section would be a good idea.

So..what should go in it? Obviously something that isn't available to the general members.

And what gives people vip access? I was thinking if they donated before, all team members get it of course, and maybe after a minimum post count?

Great, reviving a 2 years old thread... for nothing.

If there is a problem with one of my wrappers, please let me know by posting on the game thread AND by sending me a pm.
If there are no problems, then a little "Thank you!" is always heart-warming! ;)

These types of Forum users are called 'Grave Diggers'.
They dig out the oldest posts and post in them.

Nobody knows why, but i suspect that this gives them a thrill watching other users complain about this.

It's the 3 post limit. Just make it 1 post and create an intro thread or something?

Don't think i know that?
I meant categorizing the 3 Post spammers into groups, just like the normal ones.

This one belonged to the grave diggers group, and we've got many more groups, like: Thankers, random posters, same thread posters, random question askers, etc...

doc's Blog seems to be the main fault for this situation.

We've had the Moderation Queue running for new users for about 2 months, lots of trash like this was filtered.
seems like the best option is to enable it again...

We've got a lot of those in the general talk sections, not everybody uses them though...

How about if that was the only visible option that they could post in? Should stop random posts being brought back from the dead with useless comments?

I could limit new users from posting anywhere besides the general talk section for the first posts, like codez4mac does it.

but people already complain that they can't post everywhere and that too much stuff is locked down.
i'll continue this with you over PM

Well, didn't know that... I guess I did fit into the thankers' group.

Anyway, there are also some older forum users that don't seem to follow what we, in french, call the "nethiquette" (which should roughly translate into "nethics", as in "net ethics"). Oh well...
