    Can we make it so that a person can only create 1 lounge thread per week?

    This will filter out a lot of garbe threads that we don't really need.

    I like the idea.. maybe more than 1 a week but this should definitely keep out the people who post just because they're bored.

    Agreed, good idea.

    I think it should also be hidden from the "new posts" section, too.

    Far too many members around here spend all of their time in the lounge and no time making money.

    Just being able to post 1 a week may be a little constricting, but 3-4 a week feels like a more reasonable limit.

    Look at the time of the year you're suggesting this: northern hemisphere's summer. It's when the internet goes full bullshit, every year. There was an old thread, and it's true if you pay attention, many users who join in the summer don't last long, but the ones that do are hard workers.

    Since Leith thinks 1 is too few, you think 3 is too many, 2. We'll limit it to 2.

    ...Unless you're a jr vip+ or donor?

    Interesting suggestion...

    Not sure how this will pan out, but I know I post threads in lounge often using keyword rubrics that will bring in new traffic and in return my mission is to hope that more new visitors will convert to new members...

    I fully appreciate that cannot be based on rule of thumb accuracy, for sure no way will that happen for every visitor. But I am sure that the greater the outside reach and indexing gets externally will act as another way of promoting BHW to the world.

    Of course the rule on no r e l i g i on and p o l i t i c s is just great and is best as is...

    But I still am of the opinion that the Lounge bizarre as it sometimes get is still a great refuge for a laugh and coffee break.

    Plus to a lesser extent an additional external promotion arm for BHW

    This in no way opposes the OP suggestion, this is simply another point of view

    Just my 2 cents...

    I dunno about limiting the amount of posts, but as far as how many threads one can create should be limited!

    If we REALLY want to improve the amount of quality posts then maybe we should consider limiting the amount of posts you can post in the lounge in general.... i.e like 10 posts.


    Perhaps lounge posts not showing in the new posts could help too, I'm a bit indifferent there.

    But something should be done, before it goes out of control.

    Roparadise is banned this week so lounge threads will be down 80% anyway.

    I actually meant 3-4 threads a week, not posts, not sure why I said posts.

    We could limit who gets to create new threads in the lounge either by time joined or by postcount.

    I don't think limiting it by postcount will be a problem, because the user who is spamming in other sections just for the chance to post in Lounge should probably be removed.

    No limit should be placed. If people are starting to post shitty threads then eventually people will just stop checking that persons posts out. It would be better just to let people know that they are posting crap and we disapprove (in comments or neg rep).
    It would be cool if we could vote threads down and once they have x no of negative votes the threads are closed/locked/hidden.
