Posts before private messaging

Post by Isabel_Kitty on February 26th 2007, 5:25 am

My idea: Setting a limit of posts before the ability to send private messages. This way someone cannot register and send spam to your members. Admin should get to set the limit from the control panel, for instance 100 posts before members can PM.

Im for this idea! Ive had some annoying pm's from people asking how to make their own site for example, and whilst I always help others I feel this is simply annoying and rude if they only signup for that

As long as admin can make the post number themselves then I am certainly for this!

I'm sorry but i don't agree with this proposal.
If it was a feature that could be enabled by the Admin at their own discretion, then fair enough, but if its something that will become mandatory to all forums regardless, then I don't agree.
We have never suffered from any issues of spamming and all the girls on my forum are responsible adults who are there for a purpose.New members rely heavily on being able to pm me, due to the nature of our forum, with personal issues and this proposed feature would prevent them from being able to do so.

Maybe however it could be done in such a way that new members can actually pm the admin and moderators, but not members until they've reached a certain number of posts..

That sounds ok

I found this suggestion buried on page 50! lol

I like this idea a lot. Because usually the pm spammers are not regular members. They just come in and spam via pm but don't ever post in the forum itself.

You have a great point there! I guess you wouldn't be able to pm that person until they have reached the post requirement. Their pm button would either not appear or be faded out until they have reached their limit.

Agreed! I like that as well. I think it would be good for them to be able to have the capabilities to pm the staff members. If they spam them, they will be banned right away because the staff members would know about it immediately!

i would have some changes to your suggestion...

often new members of a forum... dont know what to do, where to go...
so contacting admins and mods is often a thing they do first

so maybe make an exception for those
