Should there be a suggestion to choose minimum amount of characters for a post?

There should be a selection to make it so you can make a minimum and maximum amount of characters for a post to help prevent spamming for people's website who want it

Hm, i think it would be great if there would be an option that prevents writing simply: ''Great, wow'' etc. that is considered spamm on 'fan' forums, or posting smiles only.
An option which allows you to set the minimum letters/per post, like not less then 10 in my opinion would be great.
Also, the options that some boards have: if a user writes a post after a post, his second post that is considered 'duble' somehow enters in first, with JS or...
Hope this post is readble.

So, if there is a poll I would vote a big YES.

i voted yes because on my forum once you hit a certain amount of posts you get stuff for free like free prestiges on Modern Warfare 2 and rewards and stuff. it wouldnt be fair to those who actually post long thought out suggestions when john doe is posting "cool bro" "nice stuff" etc. it should have like an on off type thing so you can decide wether you want it on or off then allow us to choose the amount of words/letters we would like use before a user can submit the post.

I voted yes because some of my members are entering just Smile in reply to the messages. It's kinda bothering :p But instead of characters, can we just have a minimum # of words like 5? Smile

I voted yes, I probably wouldn't use it, but spam is so easy with no post limit. People can easily make a bunch of posts with no meaning quickly. It would be easier for moderation.

I agree. If you don't want your members to post one or two word posts.
Then put it in your forum rules that one word or smiley only posts are not allowed.
Voted no.

A definite yes for me. I was actually just browsing to see if there was some way to do this. I guess this topic answers my question that there isn't but hopefully there will be some day. This would definitely be an advantage on role playing forums but could certainly benefit all forums.
