Member Trial Period

Recommended Posts

Vinnie

There are many forums that run trial periods for new members that sign up, they have lets say 10-20 posts to prove that they are worthy of being accepted to the forums.

 

There is an increasing amount of spamming & not following the rules properly going on lately. I'd feel that this method would allow you to see if a member is not going around spamming, advertising & not following the rules.

 

The main issue I have is with the troubleshooting forums, hardly anyone ever consults the pinned posting requirements.

With all the new members (GTAIV section) it would be extremely hard, if not impossible to keep track of their posts, and even if someone it was possible to keep track, how do we know they aren't simply putting on an act, and as soon as their "Trial period" is lifted, they simply act however they want?

 

I don't really see the point.

Maybe we could have a selection of the trial mode, for example GTA IV, Troubleshooting etc. Then again that would lead to too many member groups. Oh well it was just a thought.

Yeah it would be way too hard for Moderators and Administrators too keep track of all new members as tonnes of members join every hour.

 

Also some members when they first join post like noobs and break the rules and then get a warning or two but then end up too be great members as the learn their lesson. So if this was too take place if they break the rules in the first few days they wont have a chance too try and redeem themselves.

When i first joined, i never posted, untill after a couple of months, and look how i turned out to be, so this trial feature would make GTAForums lose great members.

Fear.

The idea sounds pretty good, but I'm almost certain it wouldn't work. Considering this is one of the largest forums on the internet, it would have to be pretty hard to keep up with the new members flocking in daily. I think the moderators in the IV section are doing a good enough job as it is. No real sense in adding something that may, for the most part, not work.
