Wonderful new rules!Clap I cannot wait until they are implemented, because the harassing on IF has increased since I joined and this site should be a relaxing place for all.

Thank you so much for the changes. They were much needed. I hope something is done to prevent the Newbies to post Pics in the threads or anywhere. They should not be allowed to post pics anywhere be it the forums or their Siggy/avi box. Let them become a Groupie and after that they can post. 

And also do something to track the Proxy IP addresses. 

And the SEARCH button should be completely discarded away.

But over all this rule is quite good.

It's good to see something being done about this. Smile

They should not be able to post images/videos/hyperlinks even in the forums either. That's a big problem with MIDs/stalkers. Remember that the stalking that led to our suggesting these changes involved a member's private pic being put up in the public forum. Mods aren't always around since they have their lives and the creeps take advantage of this. So the best thing is to take away newbies' ability to post images/videos/hyperlinks be it in the forums (threads) or in PMs. Or scraps.

Not only that but newbies shouldn't have avatar/signature capabilities because they can easily put up someone's private pic there.

For avatars I-F has a choice of standard avatars that we can select from a list. You can allow that for newbies but they shouldn't be able to have a custom avatar.

For signatures, no pics or hyperlinks but text should be ok.

Newbies cannot make more then 4 New topics per day. We came to this after looking at the data available where how many new Topics created by a new Genuine member and a Spammer. On an average a new member makes less then 2 New topics where as a Spammer makes 10+.

Even one topic is more than enough for harassment. Again think of the recent incidents where someone's pic was put up and mocked in public. Newbies shouldn't be able to create new threads at all.

We will be adding a feature where Members can choose not to recieve PMs from person who are not in their Buddy List. (Coming Soon)

This is good but I also suggest that newbies shouldn't be able to PM anyone except staff and people on their Buddy List. Not everyone on the site will set their PM settings to Buddies only. A lot of people will leave their settings open and the creeps will take advantage of it. Better to simply restrict newbies from sending PMs to random people in the first place.

For the genuine newbies they can post on the forums and ask the people they are interacting with to add them to their Buddy List. It shouldn't be a problem.

If you all of the above then these freaks will be helpless: no matter how many MIDs they create, they wouldn't be able send the PMs, create new threads or post disturbing/private pics anywhere.

Members can report PMs just like they can report Forum Posts so that our inhouse team can go through it and take action on the same if its not following our site Code Of Conduct. (Coming Soon)

What about scraps? We should be able to report them too and you should be able to track them as well.

Also, we should have the ability to hide our post history. Please try to implement that feature as well.

One suggestion: I believe it takes only 50 posts for a newbie to become a groupbie. Maybe you could raise the threshold. Or implement a time-limit: in order for someone to get past all these restrictions, they must make a minimum number of posts AND a minimum amount of time must have passed since they joined I-F (one month? 1.5 months? you decide).

I also suggested moderated posting earlier. Please consider that as well. Smile
