Thumbs Down Why 150 posts for an avator?

Okay this whole "post nonsense until I get 150 posts and then I get my avator" crap has gotten a little out of hand. It's not a serious issue but newbies are still cluttering our threads by diong this. The solution? Lower the dumb 150 rule to 50 or lower or get rid of it all together. Maybe that will help. Most forums I have visited have no rule regarding having to have so many posts to get an avator.

I like the rule. And if it encourages people to post, I'm not gonna knock it. There really aren't that many people that are posting just to get an avatar, the ones doing it at the moment, I could count on 1 hand. Heck, there really aren't that many people posting full stop. Plus it sorta has a "graduation" feel to it. It took me at least 3 months to garner up 150 posts, but I didn't post just for the sake of posting.

Some people are eager to get them, then start posting like mad. But its not too much of a problem. I say we keep it.

I agree with Mad Dog... Yes I know... "Kettle Calling The Pot Black" but I think I've changed my ways... The only thing is... It takes up web usage for custom avatars, right? So therefore EVERYONE can't get a custom avatar... so why not instead of post counts, you have to apply for an avatar... the mods decide if you contribute enough to the forum or if you're just here for the sketch of the week if you pass then you get a custom avatar.... yes? no?

Avatars are like a privelage on the board, for us who actually stick around, and not just for sketches. We should keep them.

I say keep the rule because getting an avatar when you reach 150 posts is more like a promotion or a reward. Not only that the rule will make sure that the members of this forum are posting a lot in a lot of threads then just one so I say leave the rule.

If anything, I think we should raise the requirements for the avatar, people are posting alot recently, for their avatar. Recently meaning the last month.

Ive noticed that people that have joined within the last month or so have been posting up to 20 times a day in order to get their avatars. It's getting a little bit out of control, so I think the post count for avatars should be raised by 100 posts.

Its nothing new. How can we prevent it? Raise it to 500? doesnt make any sense.

Or you could just let the mice have their cheese and lower it to like 20 posts or even less.
