1000 post minimum to start a thread

- 10 posts required in Help Board before allowed to post in any other board (this will force users to see Help Board stickied threads and let them ask the stupid questions they should there)
- 1000 posts required before alloowed to start a thread

terrible threads and low post counts are not mutually exclusive.

example: you have almost 20k posts and this is a terrible thread

Are you implying threads will get more cluttered with a bunch of meaningless posts by people trying to inflate their count?

I think only allowing threads to be started in the Help Board prior to reaching some milestone would be a good idea. Requiring a user to have 10 posts in the Help Board would at least force them to see the Help Board and might keep some of the dumb questions over here.

What issues do you see with this, Chicken?

Right. Users will start shitting all over every thread in order to reach whatever number of posts that is required to start a thread of their own. The idea sounded good in principal, but it's a lose lose situation in the end.

Exactly. The worst threads are generally started by the people who have a shite ton of posts and think that they are awesome

There are more subtle ways of doing it than I just did.

Like, say, every once in a while find a funny thread and just respond with

Are we going to ban everyone now who responds with only ? Or is there gonna be a cap on how often you can do that? It just wouldn't work.

you act like there aren't thousands upon thousands of message boards that require a certain number of posts prior to being able to start your own thread.

Isn't that what the OT is for? I keep trying to figure out why people post in there so often
