Post Number require to start threads?

5 replies
Hi,

I've not had a mega mega search (office network is a tad slow today..)

But would it be a worthy suggestion to implement a restriction that newbies cannot start threads until they've reached a specified post count?

This would help cut down the countless threads all asking the same things.
#number #post #require #start #threads

    Please no.

    That would just cause them to post even more useless responses in existing threads than they already do just so they can hit some artificial number to create their own threads.

    Things would be worse, not better.

      Hrm. How about we simply require a post count of 25 or 50 before a new member is allowed to post at all?

          Why would you want to do that? It would cut down significantly on the stupid questions from people who don't even know how or want to use the search feature and instead make themselves look like arrogant self righteous people for "being the first to ask a question"
