    Question Minimum Ten Posts Is It Good Or Bad?

    When a newbie registers on E-I they need a minimum of 10 posts before they can avail of some of the features like joining groups and adding friends etc.

    Judging by the number of newbies signing up and spamming threads purely to gain 10 posts I was wondering if this rule was actually helpful for the forum or not?

    It is bad enough when they spam current threads but some seem to like resurrecting ancient threads for some reason.

    Perhaps both a minimum post count along with a minimum number of days registered would be more constructive and cut down on the ?

    Do trolls ever really get bored? I think they'll just see 30 posts as another target to reach before they can really start annoying people.

    Why make it more newbie unfriendly god knows it can be enough at times. I mean some new posters are totally ignored when they make good valid comments. And yes I am guilty of this as well.

    I don't see how the minimum 10 post rule would affect a newbie posting a valid comment?

    It's the race to 10 posts that's the issue with people posting to get there.

    It's bad. I remember before I joined, I could view certain groups. Then when I joined, I couldn't view them until I made 10 posts?

    View them while logged out then mate,If you can see them before you join then you can still see them logged out,but that does seem daft that the privacy filter allows that.
