Hmm, I think it's about time we raised the minimum points to make a new thread as well. 500 sounds like a good number to me. I'm seeing a lot of noobs spending a few hours in the forum games section then using that to make pointless threads.

If I had my way, I would give one negative CR point for every post made in the games section. Maybe we can convince Shinji to to that.



I would sooo enjoy seeing that come to pass...

Ok i really must sleep but:

@ahojcookie - ahh i see. You wanted new members to read this thread and not make 'pointless' threads? If you go way back in thw general section you will find threads like 'a newbies guide' which gives advice on what to do before making a thread. I remember reading them. ^-^

@needles- yep ^-^ If you want them- go save them and keep them alive ^-^

@arano - I saw your suggestion and think that points being taken for creating a thread is good idea! I do worry about how that reflects badly on the idea of contributing though. Perhaps mods should be stricter and you loose points if a thread you make is locked?

@killar - I'm not sure if negative points would be a good idea since alot of members first play around with the games and then move on the proper threads. I remember spamming about 2000 points on games when i first joined! I think no points would be a good idea since members do spend alot of time on there!

And it wouldn't hurt anyone, would it?

Edit:(Argh, I'm too slow)

Nah, I'm more into bitching than being all diplomatic about it XP

Yes... that would be awesome :P.... I THINK it should also cost CR points to start threads too :(... like 20 or something (people shouldn't be making THAT many threads.)

[Edit]: Aww... Arano said it before me!!

Ok, anyway; I say they make me momentary forum moderator as I go on a rampage to eliminate all threads which are totally pointless, or contain only one - three sentances in the topic post.


Make a system for them to have to have 5 sentences to be able to create the thread. And if it's just spam, deleted! (Also if they don't explain it, in the first post.. or you could edit it in if they state it later.)

I think uploading AMV/etc. (All besides Anime, Music, and maybe Games [Excluding GMV's]) , should cost CR points too.... so people don't get giggity about getting 20 CR points for the crap they made. It should cost 20 too!! Or 50.. cause I hate them... so much... They can upload a few, post a few.. and they're already at 500... :(... or ATM 200... And maybe like lots of posts in the AMV threads too...

Just try making some creative threads. Deleting all the bad ones isn't really neccasary If you like the old ones try to imitate them.

a lot of people are blaming the noobs for spamming the games then making threads. that is a major problem, but if you think about it, after a while, it gets hard to come up with fresh ideas for a thread, so people post whatever comes to mind and hope that it gets some responses. it gets difficult to come up with new topics when they've most likely been done before at some point.

Yeah, but the logical consequence of this should be that the older "good" threads stay on the top page longer, not thread spamming.

Yeah, it's really called 'Don't make a thread, just use a thread'.
