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?

 Its good to see the new features being implemented, VBBig smile.


However, I hope you can look into the following as well.


1) Newbie's should not be able to post images/hyperlink on their post until they reach groupbie. This is not just for the member's safety but also to control the spamming. Many do advertise other sites here.


2) Restrict their access to open new topic from 4 to 2. I understand we can not restrict them from creating zero topic considering its a forum but since we do have ladder groups, they should  work up to get access these privileges:)


3) Lately we have came across abusive scraps so it should be an option where member can choose to get/not to get scraps from members outside their Buddy list.



@Janaki I know these restrictions will be inconvenient for genuine newbie's but its necessary. In the long term, it will be for the sites betterment because member's safety should get first priority and any genuine member will understand why we were forced to do that.
