Suggestion: Lower the 30 post minimum for links?



I've been actively reading around on the forums for about a week now, and I've already noticed quite a few of the newer (including myself) and/or less frequent members being unable to provide relevant info, sources, etc in their posts due to being restricted by the "No links until 30 posts" rule. I would link to a few examples, but uhh.... I can't.

I know that 30 is a relatively small number, but it's still an annoyance not being able to perform such a common task. I assume the main reasoning behind the rule is to prevent spambots from linking malicious sites? If that's the case, how about lowering the min post count to, say, 5 or 10 posts?

Other than this^, I just don't see the good in having this rule. Sure, there might be some new members who would spam/troll with unnecessary links, but I would imagine that that number is greatly outweighed by those members who actually intend on posting useful, relevant links. It just seems like more of a hindrance than anything else.

Thoughts?

You would think the prople that run the site know it best and how it works best

to assume otherwise is to be a tit

Dont be a tit mate

To be honest: I like that limit. It reduces spam. Imagine all of the stupid ads that would get posted here if this was lowered... Most spammers are too impatient to actually get 30 meaningful posts before they can start spamming their shit.

Anyway... You're halfway there so just participate in some meaningful discussions and you'll be there in no time

You'd be surprised at what they're cool with. People still do post links without 30 posts (I don't recommend doing that yourself, you'd be breaking rules, and those who do it are breaking rules) but I don't see the mods running around and killing off every single link and calling it spam. Point is, it's a good system no matter how you cut it, imho.

You don't have to be super frequent to make 30 posts. Go to the side room and you'll probably be there in 10 minutes

Re: Suggestion: Lower the 30 post minimum for links?

Your post had four paragraphs. One could make 5 posts with the same amount of text. If you write the Op x3, but spread them out on several useful posts, you will reach 30 in no-time.

Good luck.

Re: Suggestion: Lower the 30 post minimum for links?

lol, no that doesn't work either.
Post-count uppers like that get merged or deleted.

Generally, I don't think it's that big of a limit.
The idea is not only to reduce spam but to contribute a little before you start asking questions.
We have so many threads on production I'd be quite surprised if you had a unique issue tbh.
Try using the Advanced search to see if the subject has already been discussed.
If it has why not decide who seems to know what they're talking about and send them a quick pm?

I'm obviously misunderstood .
Read my post again (especially the "useful posts" part).

Re: Suggestion: Lower the 30 post minimum for links?

It's not that much of a problem imo, if you really want to share a link you can put it in with (dot) instead and stuff like that. Someone else usually posts the hyperlink or the youtube video after that.

I don't know if it really stops a lot of spam (let's not test that), but it does motivate people to spend more time posting useful stuff before they start dumping links to their stuff (if that is why they joined).
And for those who just want to talk here, they'll get past the 30 soon enough.

Re: Suggestion: Lower the 30 post minimum for links?

Thirty posts is really not a lot , I would suggest just chatting around with people to build your post count up. Im sure this isnt the first time this has been brought up , best bet is to just go with the flow and keep on posting.

It should be raised to 50.
Or better yet, based on a two tier system where you have to hit 50, and then also get 25 thanks.

Oh boy 25 thanks. I had trouble getting 1!

I think I'd go with you are required to comment on 50 tracks. It would be the only music network where new music gets listened to!
