New Rule Proposal to limit board flooding...

Postby rchecka » Mon Dec 01, 2008 11:21 am

Board Flooding = starting too many new threads per day thus monopolizing page one.

There are some members that start 5-10 threads daily, some simply to say hello to whomever. Many of these threads are completely pointless and end up pushing legitimate threads to page 2 where they will not be read at all. This is board flooding and the validity of the board suffers.

I propose we start a board flooding rule to prevent ongoing offenders from continuing to detract from the forum by proposing a 3-5 new thread per day limitation. (Not post limitation, a starting of new threads limitation) Does that seem reasonable? I think if members know they can only post 3 new threads a day, the garbage and bickering will dwindle, and it'll keep the front page of each board more legit.

Your thoughts moderators and members?

While I can set a time between posts (currently 20 seconds), I don't have control over the number of topics started during a given period.
