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.


Please allow newbies to create topics. 4 or less than four is ok but please do not make it none. Because in one forum at least I know a newbie gives written update on two days. Otherwise I have not seen that member post anywhere else. So if no topic rule is applicable for newbie then it will be difficult for that member to give the update. So for genuine members, at least there must be some leeway.

No, you need to be strict on this. If there is a genuine case of a newbie giving updates then I-F staff can make an exception for him/her. A newbie can request - either directly or via forum mods - to make an exception for them in that particular forum so that they are able to post updates or whatever. The GM/admin can review their case (talk to the forum mods, etc) and decide whether that would be ok or not.

I don't know if you are aware but given the really ugly things that have happened I-F needs to be really strict on this matter.

Thanks a lot Vijay for this! About time you did something.

I guess this is good enough for now but there are always other things you can do to keep the members of this site safe, but this is a start at least.

Hopefully, now no one will face what my two friends have gone through due to these changes.

Thanks once again.

Sweta,
I do believe The Dev Team doesnt count here and are exceptional.

After reading some replies here, I felt compelled to make a post. I agree that restrictions should be made on newbies since they can be either genuine fans or harassers, but please do not place too many restrictions! I know a lot of people from fb who joined IF on my request, and all these restrictions really put them off IF because they did not find it user friendly. While IF should take precautions against harassers, I don't think it should make potential members aversive to it since it's the members that keep this site going. When old members leave, new members will have to come in to take their place and when new members decrease substantially because of so many restrictions, it becomes a problem to keep this site running, right?
