I actually like ef's Idea. Weeds out all the one time posters from the real fan posters. I say this because out of 1200 members on the forum about 400 of them are active posters...........and out of those 400 only about 200 post consistently and regularly

I've been thinking about this while reviewing almost 3 full pages of posts. Didn't I just inform the other day of all the avatar threads. Ever since then it's been the people posting in these threads that have raised the total new posts for the day. It keeps me from other things MADtv related that I could be working on.

You can put me down for a vote of either lowering the post count to receive the avatar or somewhere along the lines of what Eric posted.

Also for those who havn't, please read this thread.

Lol it would be very interesting to see what the forum would be like if they removed the post numbers again

Umm No the Post count removal wouldn't solve anything.

LOL, when I was posted that NiK, I was thinking that peoples should just post the same amount they would before they knew about the avatar post requirement. Don't worry...hehe

Is it a bandwidth issue Hivolt, if we let everyone have an avatar who like say- introduces themselves in the sticky off-topic threads or something? What's your thoughts on this discussion?

The bandwidth impact is not significant. We have a lot more bandwidth capacity now than we did before. Allowing people avatar access if they post in a thread, would make a lot of manual labour for you and me, Mystere.

I now vote for the avatar post requirement to be somewhere between 20 and 50 posts. How does this sound? We havn't heard from you yet Cat_Named_CeCe, what do you think?

I agree with the idea that you have to apply for one.

I am new, but fear not: I shall not spam the board!

Anyway, I have an idea... maybe? A Paypal donation link could be placed underneath the forum's header. Posters could donate to help allocate hosting/bandwidth space, and be granted custom avatar priviledges in this way? Or is that completely off the wall?

Although I don't see too much wrong with lowering the post count myself; most work hard to make their own avatars and probably aren't likely to stop posting after their permissions are granted. Their posts would probably be more relevant, anyway.

We already have the bandwidth. I think that something like that would be a good idea for getting the new sight designed though. HiVolt?

...I still think we should lower the post count requirements though. How about 25?

Relax Caffeine King......After a long debate the requirements were lowered to 50 posts, a while ago.
