This isent a bad idea....

Ok I see how hard we are trying to get new people to obey the rules. I have a suggestion that should reduce the amount of usless crap.

Here is what im thinking. What if we Email all the new people that join a list of the rules. Then make them read it by giving them a quiz. Or maybe we should have a place where we can vote on a members post and if they suck to long they get a warning. And if there posts are still irrelevent they get bannage. I belive only mods should have this power because it might be abused. Is this a good idea? One or the other. We have to do something.

Its a good thing though. It will take out all the 50 post spammers that leave after 4 weeks. And the ones that ldont mind obeying the rules can remain here.

Forced to reading the rules and a quiz wont necessarily make them follow rules. Their are spammers and noobs in every forum on the net. And I doubt the mods will want to deal with voting and tracking quizzes.

Still, at least they'd have read them. There were more views of the hot babe pic thread than the rules...


The second is crap.

Well if we make them read it. And warn them for spamming. It would be good. Like a 3 strike your out thing. I know it seems strict. Maybe it should be 10 usless threads or posts. Then a ban. But it will reduce it. Then when they complain we can say you should have read the rules. That would work quite well.
