Default Maximum Number of Threads

May be we need a maxium number of threads a poster can start in 24 hours period like the rep.

I really can't see why any single poster need to start over 20 threads in a short period of time.

Lee I'm sorry to say I think the Admin. decision not to pay vCash for posts has encouraged this situation. If they aren't going to pay for posts, maybe they shouldn't pay for starting threads either?

What??????????

Anyway, I think that's a good idea. Or maybe not in a day, but in a period of time like an hour or something. No more than 10 threads an hour or something should be enough for most

Lee's suggestion has nothing to do with vcash. It has to do with people starting a lot of threads to cause trouble here. Not everything is about vcash

Well most of the culprits who are starting a ridiculous number of threads have been members for only a few months. I can assure you v-cash is not something they have at the forefront of their minds.

I would think the new members would be the perfect group to want vCash. I know I wanted mine to build up. Of course, if you are talking about a group that just wants to make trouble then that is an entirely different issue.

Yes, that is what is being discussed here.

10 threads an hour? So thats saying if someone started 240 threads in a day that would be okay?

No, but if you've noticed some of the flooding that's been going on, people will start a lot of threads at once in a very short period of time.

I was just throwing a different suggestion out there if people felt 20 a day limit was too restrictive for some reason.

Personally I think an over-strict and over-moderated board is fine by me and 10 threads a day is more than enough, but I know others won't agree

Excellent suggestion, I think 3 threads an hour would be a great limit. Most people seem to contribute to old threads anyway, and I don't see any reason a single poster would want to start more than that in only an hour.

It's possible that some posters would start more than 3 threads in an hour. Especially in tournament threads and challengers etc. You have main draw for singles and doubles in like 2 to 3 tournaments. You will have 4-6 threads already.
