    We are flooded by armies of noobs starting ridiculous threads asking some low basic shit...

    As mentioned many times before we are ready for Help or Support forum for noobs, where people can voluntary help people and where noob flaming will be not allowed.

    All stupid posts could land there and helpful users could help/discuss.

    Please, really please do this. We really need section like that as this forum is becoming slowly new DP...

    Please support this thread!!!

    It's not a bad idea. So you are saying make a section for helping newbies so we get less of those "help me make money" threads

    Yeah Jonny - thats the idea. This was discussed many times but mods said that any idea that will go viral in this section have chance to come to life, so post your thoughts!!!

    yea no shit man, we really need something like this. back in the day when i 1st started lerking this place, there was useful post around every corner. now its about a ratio of 1 good thread to around maybe 40 bullshit threads, and its only getting worse. when looking through the cpa section for example, looking at the threads being posted just makes my want to rip my f***ing hair out. sure, i can just ignore them but, its just seriously overwhelming and ridiculous now. the worst part about this though, is if this help section were to be actually implemented into the forum, most of the noobs are to f***ing dull to ever go there and use it. they would probably just keep spewing their bullshit where they normally do like usual.

    evilman, I know you are mad, I see your avatar :p

    They will be spamming the hell of this forum, no doubts of that, but at least mods would have place to throw all this garbage to... So you wouldnt see them anymore!!!

    +999999 for this idea

    OR CLOSE FORUM DOWN, invitation only!!!!!!!! too many noobs lately

    or i got good idea too

    when you join, you are not allowed to post anything for 2 months, just read the forum, and if you just leave account like that in-active for 2 months, you still wouldnt be able to post, until you actually start searching and reading through forum, instead of asking questions... that is amazing idea i think, and very much doable

    ExtraWinner you are a younger member too (by looking at your join date) ;)

    But I agree with this 100%. This is how it looks now everyday (hundreds of these threads):
    - threads about how to use scrapebox and if its worth buying
    - threads with title like How can I make X$ in Y weeks?
    - a lot of Which article spinner is the best? threads
    - paypal sucks threads
    - Hey I'm new here Spoon feed me threads
    - etc. etc

    :rolleyes:

    My idea is:

    Nobody is allowed to open threads until they get at least about 20 thanks. This way they will actually need to post good posts (not just random posts to increase their post count) from the start and try to help other members and get in debates. When they reach 20 they will probably be smart enough to first search and then open threads.

    Or just get more moderators.

    Good idea. Lots of foolish questions and answers to them make you crazy sometimes.

    it really seems a good idea but I still vote for Invitation based registration AND inactive a/cs which are idle for say 2 months or so. Another idea given by other member "no one should be allowed to Open new threads Till they get 20 thanks And are at least 2 months old"

    If these things can be implemented, lots of garbage can be cleaned.

    Although I like the 20 thanks idea, I can see people lurking for months if they really are noobs, wont even be able to ask a question. And makes me wonder if they will learn anything really or be downloading every BS guru course on the members downloads section...

    They'll be trying a used or rehashed method that prob doesnt work any longer. Sad but I wished i got alot more help when I started. I try to help members on here when I can at all times if I am knowledgeable about something. But for the most part there is alot of spoon feeding that people want and how to avoid that is the question.

    Like this is not the place to learn how to install wordpress, I'm sorry. Welcome to advanced internet marketing...
