Members List

I think a member should have more than 20 posts in order to be on the members list. I mean come on look at it. Its flooded with a bunch of members with only 0 posts. A half of this site is full of members who have no posts. I think this problem is because of the video section. Here are what some rules should be:

10 posts for a signature and avatar
20 posts to get on the members list
50 posts to view MMA videos and downloads

We have a lot of members but also a lot of members not posting. There are only about 20 members with more than 100 posts and thats a huge problem. I hope the best for this site thats why we need these new rules installed. I think this will make are site endeavour.

hmm that idea has some merit actually... I could argue it both ways.. but yea we have tons of people just signed up but not doing anythig.. members who have not signed on since they joined... we should have some reward or way of recoginizine those of us who post and to encourace other members to become more active but it should not be at the detriment of the casual poster perhaps that should be hopw you can enter a clan.. need to have so many posts or something..

The way I see it, once a person becomes a member and they just look at the video section, they become hooked on this site. The video section brings in the most people to this site, if you have to post 20 times in order to view the videos then they will just go somewhere else. Yeah it's kinda bad that they don't post but at least they are on our site rather than another.

Should we install these new rules? I think they are pretty reasonable.

I think it's an alright idea, with both good and bad points.

I'm not sure how many, if any of you, have email account on MSN's Hotmail. That's set up to where if you don't sign in or do anything with your account it gets 'frozen' until you reactivate it.
I think something like that might do the trick. If you sign up and don't do anything, you get frozen and forced to reactivate next time you try to sign in. That way the serious members who just don't talk that much can stay, and the ones who aren't... well stay frozen.


Póg mo thóin.

thats what I was hinting at.. leave things as they are but for other features make them for more active members.. like I stated before the clan thing we been talking about.. or maybe give more options to them

That would take a long time and some posts and threads may be deleted. If your talking about the members who have not posted at all and all they look at is the videos or never sign on, you could delete their accounts if you want. If they are members who have posted 1-5 times then just take them off the member list. You should have more than 20 posts to be on the members list IMO.
