Being discussed now, we want to hear member's thoughts.

The Lounge can be scary to newbies, especially for young girls scared of old men in wheel chairs with 17 inchers (/looks at GG and his Viagra IV).

Also, spammers dont need to hop into that forum right off the bat.

The idea is to wait until they're a full member. I think that's 30 posts. Thoughts?

good idea. Altho I don't think I personally made it to 30 posts before I started droppin knowlage in the lounge.

scratch that. it was about 30-40 posts before I made my way to the lounge. Seems that it was a DBZ convo that pulled me in.

good idea. i know that certain members have made fresh accounts just to post in the lounge anonymously. this may be a deterrent.

I think it's a good idea I'm not sure 30 posts isn't too much.Someone coming here for information and to ask a few questions might take quite a while to get 30 posts.

It certainly would keep two of our long-time friends off the site...could we include the U.K. forum in this limit? That way patriot/commando would have to make fish posts rather than try to get the dander up for our friends from across the Pond.

The idea isn't really to deal with spammer as it is to let people see the great information here not diluted by lounge stuff.

In my defense....I felt that by not sending her the picture of my 17 incher........I felt I was protecting her from a life filled with constant comparison and continual disappointment.

worst idea ever. Why limit people from certain forums because of their post count?
If by doing this the MAB is saying the lounge is a nasty place... why not do something to clean the lounge up instead of limiting a certain peoples access to the lounge.

I believe there is a newb forum that only shows up for Junior Members and that limits people who have over 30 posts in it.

I can think of a few ideas that are worse....
lol

I brought this idea up based on something I thought about last week.
If someone from my workplace asked me for a good site to go to for fish info, I'd have a hard time sending them to p-fury and certanly wouldn't reccomend it to any students, this is because of the lounge and harless antics of many ...
I'd like people to get a feel for the site and see the vast amount of great info BEFORE coming across the crap in the lounge.The lounge sh*t surely scares many good members off before they get to sample the site.

This in no was is to reflect badly on the mods for the lounge as they do a great job in keepign things in check. It's a far more difficult and thankless job than most know..

whats all this talk about how much "crap" there is in the lounge.

and how that can "scare" someone away.

either you give to little credit to new visitors. Simple reason, noone forces you to enter there. Dont like it, dont click on it. Or youre saying that all the new joiners are retards and have no whay of avoiding this horrible place.

and if you so are a retard with no will power what so ever and force yourself to visit it frequently how can it scare you away!

i can picture it before me.

" hey my name is tim65f5"(tim65f5 is retarded and has no will power)

" i want to learn about P's" #clicks on Lounge button# "oh noes!!!! links to funny vids !! ahhh argument over the internet!!! cant take it .. runs away!!!""

the lounge is perfect!!! the p discussion is perfect!!

Its just up to the individual user to use the board appropriately and according to interest.

yeah. I dunno about how the lounge can scare some people off. and again why are people comming here for info about fish going straght to the lounge? And why would that scare them off if they are genuinely looking for fish info?
Ppl that are here for fish info and resources are not going straght to the lounge. and If that is the first place they head to when they sign up then maybe they really aren't here to get fish info.

How about this. Put the lounge at the bottom of the forum list. that way you have to scroll allllll the way to the bottom of the list past all the P discussion and past the info forums to get to the lounge. that way if they get scared off before getting thier info (yeah like this happens) Then its their own damn fault.
And I'm also tired of those people bitching about the lounge and saying it takes away from the rest of the site. How? Because YOU have nothing to contribute to the ongoing topics you feel left out? Is that the issue? Well if the topic list in the lounge sucks for you. Contribute something to it. Start your own thread with your own interest and maybe someone will share it ad you can have a nice little carebear conversation.

I see this as more of a way to stop banned members from creating new acounts so they can jump back in and start sh*t in the lounge.

If they're coming to the site for information and to ask a few questions then that will be done in other threads and in other forums.
