i think it would be more effective if in order to advance you had to get a certain number of 'thank-you' clicks from people who you help out rather than just mere posts. If you get # of troll votes you digress back into restricted access until your 'thank-you's go back up.

this way you could allow all these new mods to get back to being the regular posters they are and you allow this section to be a cluster fuck that is weeded by those who want to advance to regular status.

I agree, but it is hard for newbies to get "thank you"s, because they will most of the time ask the questions, not answer them. Never mind the fact that most people simply ignore the functionality exist at all.

I knew there is/was a "reputation" thing, and mysteriously I can't see it anymore Undecided

It's true the Thank You solution would be another alternative to 50 posts. But as long as the moderation team can keep up with troll posts it will pretty much work to be the same.

there will always be brand new newbies that ask questions that 2 minutes of research will result in an answer, if you want to advance out of newbie stage, you do a little homework and help out someone else.

Or it could be a combo. 

50 posts and 5 thank you's!

Since i made the OP i have been thinking about it and i really like my idea, and that is something i don't say often. By setting an amount of thank yous that must be received you force any would-be troll to either keep his noise in one place or to at least pretend to be a useful member of society for a bit, and who knows, they just may enjoy that more than trolling.

I think a solution that still allows non-bitcoin holders to talk to bitcoin holders is considerably better than this idea.

Well I've been mining kicks in the ass for awhile now.  I'd be happy hand those out for free to get rid of this garbage.

I think that's a great idea. But how does one actually DO a thank you click for another's post? I've spent 15 minutes trying to find some icon to click, or a FAQ that describes the procedure. Is it turned off in my newbie setup or am I just blind today or something?

The OP (original poster)  was a feature that would be useful, if it existed.  These forums run on Simple Machines Forum (SMF) software which has no "thank you" option.

Ah! Thank you very much.
