User Restrictions on Selecting a Favorite Team
Edited to add:
Sorry, TD users. I meant to post this under the SEC Rant Help Board. Until just a minute ago, I thought this was the only Help Board, so I posted the topic here. I'm going to repost this on the Rant Help Board. Y'all can whack this thread if you want.


In my short time here, I have noticed the most obnoxious trolls on the SEC Rant forum have a penchant for constantly changing their favorite team logo. These shitposters then use that selection to their advantage to pretend to be a representative of a rival fanbase, cluttering up the board with stupid threads and piss-poor trolling attempts.

Upon account creation, I would suggest prompting the new user with three possible favorite college or professional team selections. That way, you prevent some posters who intend to cause nothing but disruption from going completely berserk on the forum.

I don't mind clever, witty trolling, but half of what I read on the SEC Rant forum belongs in the kiddie pool. I know there has to be some place for these serial trolls to go so they don't infect every other forum on this website (God help us), but I wish there were more restrictions upon user activity and/or moderation in place, especially when a new account is created.

I don't know if this is already in place, but I would also suggest limiting users to no more than 4 threads per day on SEC Rant. If somebody is creating more threads than that in less than 24 hours, it's highly likely that poster's content is garbage and not worth reading. Quality > Quantity.


Thank you for taking my suggestions into consideration. I like this website as a whole, but I think some simple improvements can be made to limit trolling before it gets too out of hand.

In less than a week you seen this multiple times?

What is wrong with your other account where you are an LSU fan?

Umm no. How about you figure out who is who and don't let a message board get your panties in a twist.
