Hello Members of BlackHatWord, I´m a registered Member for about 1 month now, and during this time I discovered that A LOT of new members sign in to this great forum, and immediately start to post new threats about questions that either: could be answered easily by using the searchbox in this forum could be answered by asking the one that knows everything (gooogle, you just have to ask him the right questions) or even questions alá “I want thousands of twitter-followers – show me how it works, as I´m too lazy at the moment!”. I mean, look at myself. I´m also a Newbie with a lot of questions (trust me), but do you see me posting threats with questions that honestly could be solved if I just had used the search-box, or searched on gooogle for some minutes? Okay, some questions are sticky, but also can be solved by investing some time trying to figure it out all by yourself. I had an experience once, it was on a forum where I had registered on to get a problem solved. But this forum didn´t allow it´s new members to post ANY threat nor reply for exactly 30 days. So what happened? Man I immediately needed this problem solved so I began to READ! I began to LEARN! I began to UNDERSTAND! I began to adapt the typical rules of the forum, the guidelines, how the members interact. I had my problem solved within some days, but even more important I also had recieved a certain knowledge about the specific niche of the forum, simply by beeing not allowed to ask, but instead beeing dependent on collecting neccessary informations by myself. Therefore I would like to make the suggestion that every person, that registers on BHW should not be allowed to post/answer for X-days (5 days – 30 days?, I don´t mind the amount of days). The intention of this suggestion is not to insult/flame nor to offend any Newbie (since I am a Newbie myself that would be meaningless!!!). I just discovered this to be a problem for some years and therefore I had some thoughts and made this suggestion. That’s all. And yes, there are A LOT of really helpful newbie-members here on BHW, that share great ideas and write really helpful answers and replies. That is not the point. None of them will be prevented to do so in the future. If someone is really interested in this forum this person will be willing to accept the X-day-rule. Otherwise the person is not really interested and it´s intention for the sign-up is only to gather very fast an expert-advice or solution by some pro´s without contributing or never returning. And a positive side-effect: it could prevent some spammers that found this forum, register and wanted immediately begin to spam. I also used to search box to see if this topic was already discussed, but all I found were threats discussing a similar suggestion (post-count...) http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...60-post-limit-number-before-first-thread.html But I think some of the replies in this threat are very missleading, or not even relevant to my suggestion. And I also found this threat: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...stion-users-starting-threads-only-1-post.html But, again. It´s just an suggestion about the post-count. So.. that´s it. Have a nice evening everybody.
