It would be better if this entire idea was scratched alltogether and the DEV team focused on tackling the real issues that are tarnishing the environment of IF.

its really annoying to see thanks post and look at all pages in a topic to really find out meaningful discussion.  but 150 characters are too much.  the main issue is that the so called spammers just type in 1 or 2 words to increase their number of posts to get a new rank as it is.  one solution could be that the rank is given in response of how much time a user spends on the forum and stop using the post counts.  there used to be an IF addict contest before so no new feature needs to be implemented.  Moderators could just monitor the amount of time spent on the forum and after a certain limit designate a new rank.  I think that could solve the problem of unnecessary posts.  I hope that the 150 character limit will not be imposed since this will really cause a block and many users might stop using the forum.  I participate in the games regularly and in most posts its just 1 or a few words nothing more so this could pose a problem there.  I thing i dont like is that when there are pictures or long messages, the quoting technique also uses a lot of space.  look at the iifa pictures for example so many users quote and express their feelings. it is good that users can express their emotions but it takes too long to see each and every pages and long long quotes.  i dont know what to suggest as a solution but maybe a quote limit!!!

This is one very good feature to control spam posts. You guys can also enable image verification to prevent post padders. Image verification slows down replies.

You can also add a limit like 10-15 sec limit between each posts. :-)

If I think of some more ideas, will add later.

Twitter Fan? Smile  Are you a member of a Chat Club on IF? I think 10-15  sec limit would kill the chat clubs Ouch 

Not a Social Networking fan! Just been involved with Spam and Post Padders in the past. Smile

very good idea 2 get rid of spam
but 150 characters is some times large (very few)
i think 100 characters will work better
if 100 characters doesn't work, then u can change the feature 2 150 posts

This is a very helpful feature. It saves us from repeating "no spamming" tag in every possible post. Big smile
Hope it encourages better discussion. Will be looking forward to this feature.
