I've never used tha facility before! I voted average for this thread just to see what would happen. Can somebody try voting higher or lower, and see what happens? It has three stars at the top at the moment. Post what you voted for it please.
I like the idea, but I think it should be more like a week as oppose a month.As a suggestion, what are peoples opinions on a 'one month rule' where new members would be unable to post until (you guessed it) a month after registering? As I see it this would:
~ Encourage new members to have a good read of the content of the site and forums in that time before contributing themselves, therefore
~ Stop alot of the more repetitive posts about 'who can reccomend a good knife, axe, stove' etc typically posted by new members who havent bothered to read previous posts on the subject
~ Stop people joining just to have a rant about a specific subject and then clearing off
So someone joining the forum just to slag someone off and causing them a great deal of stress isn't a problem then..?Is it just me? I don't see a problem that needs fixing.
People join and ask questions, people answer the questions with the latest information.
Isn't that how forums are supposed to work?
If we took away all the questions that had been asked before there wouldn't be much left to talk about would there?

I have no problems with repeated questions though...
That's what the report button is for. The mods do a fine job around here and such threads soon disappear if reported.So someone joining the forum just to slag someone off and causing them a great deal of stress isn't a problem then..?
I personally don't think making people have to wait for a bit would necesarilly (sp?) put them off joining...I have had to wait to join forums before and it didnt put me off..Yes it may some, but it may make them want to join all the more also...It would certainly stop the likes of Cowshedder comming on just to have a pop at someone...Is it really thay much of a problem though?
to the extent where we want to put people off from joining?
Not seeing it myself.
