Let's try and get this back on topic.
We want to prevent someone from dumping their golf gear on this
site. The 20 post limit was devised.
1. Will it stop club dumping? Probably to a degree yes, but if
someone really see's this site as a good selling spot, they
can simply junk post until they hit 20. Just a thought, but did
you guys think this might help increase forum traffic by forcing
people to post?
2. Do we really care that they are dumping clubs? 3oneday does, I
don't. Like buying stuff and as far as I am concerned the
more the merrier. See the current front page for several examples
of people under 20 posts, who are not dumpers and several who
3. A post limit, like it or not, will discourage some poeple from
even bothering with our forums, ensuring that our site remains
limited to the chosen few.
4. Are there better alternatives? Yes, and we already use one!!
All new classified are moderated BEFORE they appear in the forum
to ensure they comply with formatting rules. I would have thought
that was the perfect time to remove any dumping from the site. It
achieves the desired result without any of the side effects, and
without a change to the current moderating system.
