Re: Petition for right to start a thread in GM only for users with over 500 posts.

People join forums like this because they want to voice their opinion! stopping people from doing that would stop people from joining and MTF would be a very boring place!

Besides you were all newbies once.....Just because you have a zillion posts dosent mean you own the place.

Go Andy!

So very very proud to be a fan of Mr Andy Murray Wimbledon Champion 2013

Double Grand slam champion. Olympic Gold Medalist. Holder of 9 Masters 1000 events # legend

Moderators should be enough to erase bad or inconvenient threads, or to merge duplicate ones. I don´t see why conditions on time or number of previous posts could avoid silly or duplicate threads. To have posted 20.000 times could mean you´re a happy-triggered shit-sprayer. Who knows. Let natural selection take place. . . . .

Re: Petition for right to start a thread in GM only for users with over 500 posts.

this would encourage post-whoring till you get to 500 posts, then starting countless new threads.

What she said.

A poor suggestion. The original one. As if number of posts is in anyway a reflection of tennis knowledge or sense.

Look at me, I have 585,584 posts, therefore I'm worthy of speaking here (or in this case, starting a topic of conversation) as opposed to some person with a mere 18 posts. That's just complete bollox.

It's quite simple, there are alot of people who just like to be the one to start countless threads that have either been done before, or just for the sake of some controversy with little or no originality. Get rid of them.

Someone started a thread recently, or not, I can't even remember about which threads they try to avoid or some other such bullshit. I was half tempted to go into the thread and make it explicitly clear what a complete waste of fucking time and space the thread was. However, I knew that would only continue the trend of bumping up a worthless thread, so I managed to bite my internet tongue. Just.

i dont agree AT ALL. Newbs sometimes have something good to show and let they walking around a bit in this site while they are still a newbie.

Most of them will leave ASAP from this MTF if they cannot post a thread.

I voted for "NO"

If we are going to have a criteria for letting people start or not threads, then, it has to be the IQ... not the number of posts.

Please PLEASE can we put this under consideration.

Xavier7 is yet another one that needs to be stopped. 27 posts on this forum and 7 of them have been new threads. If everyone did this we'd have an average of 2 replies per thread.

I'm with you in this case.
