Is it possible ....

Postby slparry » Thu May 31, 2012 5:46 pm

in each persons profile section to have a bit to have a photo of the person and details of everyones first and surnames? At times the avatars and psuedonyms get very confusing :)

Is it something else to do with your age Steve :wink:









I do know what you mean though, just have to read it more than once to make any sence of it.

On one of the (several) hifi forums I frequent there's a rule whereby everyone puts their first name in their sig line - quite a nice idea although I wouldn't necessarily want to make it a compulsory here.

One thing I would like to see - and I think it's not too much to ask - is that new members introduce themselves in the 'New Trixters' section before wading into the rest of the forum (especially the 'for sale' section). Tell us a little about themselves etc etc, including first name. :)

Could you set a minimum post count before being able to post in the forsale section? 5? 10? I'm sure I've been on a forum that did this.

UK-MKIVS (Golf forum) want 100 posts + three months membership before sales ads can be placed. Additionally, the item must be presented with a clear photo that also shows the date of placement and the vendor's forum name. Unfortunately, there is no requirement to identify that the item is sold; e.g via an edit 'sold' in the title, or an automatic three month deletion of that item, whether it is sold or not.

I don't agree with that. If people want to register just to sell something so be it. After all, it might be something one of us actually wants to buy.

It does not really happen that often anyway, and if its relevant to the forum then fine. The fewer rules the better.

I'm with Herb on this.

In my case I went through the banter section and commented on posts where I normally wouldn't bother, just to get my post count up.

It would make more sense to me to just require that you create a thread in the about me section, even if it's just to say that you've got a box of bits to get rid of.

I'm forever trawling forums looking for a new kitchen :?

I thought we already had the 10 postings rule after debating this long and hard some time ago.
