Is it possible to lock posting and/or messaging until the member meets certain requirements on this forum? For example, a couple other forums I’m a member of (I think audizine and Audi-forum) lock you out of posting anywhere and I think messaging anyone until you post in the new member introduction. Then you have to post so much before you can post in the classifieds. I don’t remember the exact rules, they’re a real PITA and vary slightly forum to forum, but I think they’re effective. I’ve received quite a few of these but deleted it after I looked at post count and membership time before I realized you had this post here.
The R6-forum had a rule where new members had to have 10 posts. It just made every new member post all over the forum.... post 1. Post 2, p3.... etc etc. It was a nightmare. I like the idea of having to post in the new member introduction section first though and I will relay this to the administration.
I had several last month when I was looking for Pitbull tire wedge. No profile pick, always had a friend with one for sale that I needed to reach out to via an email, only 1 post on the forum, member for minutes, and odd/bad grammar. I reacted to the first one before my spidey sense went off... and when I told him I was no longer interested he wanted to know why.... I reached out the admins. We should start telling them we are in a biker gang that is roaming and we would like to pick up in person with cash, and by cash I mean a baseball bat.
