Any thoughts about allowing thread creators to allow a minimum activity level before being allowed to post in the thread ?

It's not uncommon to see newbies attempting to derail discussions in some threads, and this could be an effective method to prevent trolling and derailing.

Already suggested by me in this Sub-Forum:
When I create a thread, I'd like to be able to restrict the users who are allowed to post in it.
E.g., I won't let newbies make a post.
Or, if I'm feeling 1337, I'll only allow Legendarys to post. Oh, and myself, of course Roll Eyes

I could also create a thread in scam accusation where I'll accuse someone and only allow him specifically to speak up for himself. I.e. a private conversation in public.

I mean, right now I can moderate my own threads, so I could just start a self-moderated thread and delete any posts by newbies anyway.
I guess that would make adamstgBit kind of unemployed, no longer having to clean up the mess that the wall observer Wink

Features needed: blacklist / whitelist for the thread with "groups" like newbies being an option on the lists.

Yeah, well... I'm gonna go build my own blockchain, with blackjack and hookers. In fact, forget the blockchain!

I think it would be a wee bit of a shame but I know what you mean. Sometimes the best points of view come from nowhere. Self moderation deals with it already. The specific person thing does make sense for reputation and scam threads but some might suggest a two person exchange should be done by PM only.

I could see this being an annoyance to some newbies; if a lot of people make no newbie threads, newbies won't have many places to post and express their opinions on things. I think making a self-moderated thread and deleting troll posts would be a better option. We shouldn't drive away new users from the Bitcoin community; while there are many alt accounts being used, some members are genuine and just want to be part of the Bitcoin community.

yes.. that would be great.  also to add in blocking postings from members with paid signatures.  that would also be very interesting to see.

How would one define a user with a "paid signature"? The administrators would continually have to update the system with definitions of a signature to block on request, and plenty of signatures get changed every month. Also, just because someone has a paid signature doesn't mean that they don't have something meaningful to contribute.

Same goes for Newbies, but an even more complicated issue would be someone changing their signature to a paid one. Would that delete a 2 year old post?

I think it would do more harm and cause more frustration than it would do good. This almost gives the forum a "cliquey" feeling for the experienced members and really alienates newer members from participating in any sort of meaningful discussion.

We need to hear the voices from across the board and not limit ourselves.

it would not delete the post but it would prevent them from making a new reply in a thread that has paid sig users blocked.  also i think its quite easy to automatically distinguish between a paid signature and a regular one.  with all the formatting that goes into these you could allow plain text sig users but not those with formatted signatures.  i don't think the campaigns will switch to text only as its not as attractive and visible. 

another option would be a personal block user list that you could apply to a post.  its not hard to gather all the members participating in paid signature campaigns in one list.

So I could take it off, post and put it back one. If I rewrite the post it would take only a few seconds. Even if the campaign is checking via bot I could bypass the system. Assuming there are no time based limits in place.

also i think its quite easy to automatically distinguish between a paid signature and a regular one.  with all the formatting that goes into these you could allow plain text sig users but not those with formatted signatures.  i don't think the campaigns will switch to text only as its not as attractive and visible. 

I dont see that as a problem either, there already is a script that blocks paid sigs.

Nope, but it might be hard to create a list of all accounts made for a few posts. IIRC the speculation section had a problem in that regard for a while.
