    possible suggestion? i'm not sure but this might keep the spam/annoying posts to a dull roar. so i was thinking that any new members that sign up for ifans.com/forums should not have the privilege of posting new threads, but only posting replies to threads. this may be a horrible idea i'm just trying to contribute to the forum the best way i can. thanks.

    This subject was brought up a while back. It isnt really feasible because this site was made to help, not prevent.

    No, they shouldn't be allowed to post threads because that's not what forums are for.

    I know this would actually apply to me, lol, but:
    I think that anyone new signing up should be required to say if/what kind of iPod/iPhone they have, and if they have an iPod Touch 2G, they should be required to answer trivia questions about simple things (name 1 firmware, does the iPod Touch have a mic.,etc.) AND they are allowed to research, so maybe they'll get used to search first!
    That would be flippin' sweet!

    not all new people post pointless threads. i joined yesterday to keep up with the latest things ipod touch.
    and for people that want noobs to do a whole test before you sign up, that is just stupid.
    you want me to take a test before i join a damn forum?! lmao
