    50 posts

    What's the reasoning behind 50 posts prior to pm'ing? I'm surprised we don't see more threads with...
    1 . . .

    2 . . .

    3 . . .

    etc. as people try to get to 50 posts. Maybe there is a good reason? If not, drop it.

    This does happen sometimes, but i delete the posts instead of moving them so it takes it off their post count. Once or twice if they persist i've suspended them for a few days and they've come back just accepting thats the way it is.

    A lot of the time the people wanting to PM or post links right away are either spammers or people looking for AAS sources anyways. Get a few PMs every week asking "where i can get roids lol".

    Was it changed from 20? I remember when I first started, it was 20. I eventually got 20, then it said 50. I'm good now, but I don't see the difference between 20 and 50 when it comes to spammers....I'd imagine they'd (or their software) would try a few times and give up.

    It's made things way better IMO! But there is still alot of retards that just post crap so they can ask for sources. Nature of the game I guess.

    sometimes it just discourages them and they don't even bother, other times they start posting crap until they hit 50 posts. So its obvious and we just mass delete their posts and ban them, which takes all of 20 seconds to do.

    some spammers are starting to make a series of posts though (none of which make any sense) just to override spam filters on the boards

    yup, and it makes it very obvious when they do this, so I mass delete their posts and ban them which take about 20 seconds.

    good point, loads of problems with the sponsor section already.

    Has there been any such ideas to eliminate these sorts? If I missed it, sorry!
