Problem: Leeches Solution: Get rid of them What's going on guys? A recent share of mine shed some light on a potential issue that is going on: The amount of leeches we have going around. I've had numerous and numerous of members with aged accounts, in one way or another, interact with me today asking for a password to one of my shares. These members were people that have had these accounts for years, some even more than 5 years old, and had an average of only 10 posts. Basically these are people who do nothing for the community but come here to reap the benefits of having a membership to this community but in no way help or contribute. They come here just to enjoy our downloads and nothing more. We need to have this community on a "One hand washes the other" basis, NOT "Hey, let me use you for all I can and give nothing in return." With that said, I want to suggest an "Account Inactivity Ban" This can probably be automated. Basically I believe there should be a criteria for members to be able to maintain active with their accounts. There is NO reason why 5 year old accounts should have only 10 posts. I'm not saying people need to live,eat, and breath BHW, but they should at least participate in the community. I think maybe a fair criteria would be to set a post count minimum of 50 posts a year. I'll set up a poll, but what we will have to consider is the quality of members who vote. NOT just the number, reason being is because obviously these leechers don't want to have a minimum post requirement. This suggestion could be twisted in other ways as well. I just feel that we need a nice little sweep every once in a while to keep the bugs out. Heh, maybe I'm just being a little protective of this place. I tend to do that when I care about things.
