    I went and joined a couple days ago to promote the podcast but found out that new members cannot post images or have sigs.... :S until they have over 1000 posts.
    Punishing new members because of something a couple of old members did.

    Im sorry but that seems like a good way of losing new members. Anyone else think that too?

    Sounds unfair.. but if the new memeber's worth it then he/she will stay.

    So? We do that here, just not with images and sigs. We do it with avatars instead. But I must asy I much prefer having to wait to get my own avatar instead of the posting images and sigs. I loev my images and sigs!

    Yeah it is. And that's what I was saying. Having your own avatar is trivial compared to being able to post pics,videos and sigs. If it was DnBarena I wouldn't be able to do this...

    Yeah it stays that way until admin can find a way of allowing sigs for older members.
    Sucks becasue i been there sinse '07 but i have a new account that i started this year so it seems that i will be in the group of 'the unclean' until i reach x amount of posts.

    That place has steadily gone downhill.

    :lol: nah it's not too bad there really.

    Some seri0use3333 egos though on the main board.

    But it is THE place for advertisement if you ask me, they get huge amounts of traffic second to DOA (shit) i think.

    But i much prefer this place atm, mainly for the seperate boards for talking shit and DnB.

    The mian board there has only a handfull of threads on anything DnB related most times :teeth:

    Nah, it needed that... There was certain user's on there which abused the privelage of posting images.. No body wants to see a picture of a stretch arsehole. Certain people have spoiled it for the masses. Problem with dnbarena is there is no validation on emails. Meaning you can sign up and wack anything in the email address section and crack on posting. This led to a influx of trolls.

    IMO though it is a decent board with a good community, but I think the way they have gone about resolving the trolling has resulted in like you said deterring legitimate new members. I think the email verication system would solve most of there issue's, the only reason there was so many trolls was because it was so easy to make an account... No one's gona make 30 accounts a day if u have to have a valid email address for each one. I think I can probably post images etc... Anything you would like me to post on your behalf?

    your face.
    I forgot my password & have requested in about 5 times & had to reply or anything. Even checked my junk mail etc. So they obviously don't want me on there!
    Seems a bit Nazi ish not be be able to post pics until 1000 posts. That's ALOT of posts. Proberly explains all the crap people talk on there trying to get their posts up!
