20 post until unlocking "moderated modus" is too long and annoying.

    noone spams here - as you hopefully noticed already, spammers
    get banned immediately. Only valid posts pass through.
    Offtopic does not increase the post-counter. Short: your
    post is pointless, except the phrase about Locutus, this
    guy is indeed the biggest spammer and seems nobody stop
    him from doing this....

    this 20 post counter is pretty stupid, so spammers just spam some crap to get unlocked...

    i dont spam, and it takes months to reach 20 posts.

    btw, locutus - Posts: 1,979 - thats a spammer ;D

    this is offcourse true, but maybe if you put a little bit effort in it, you can assign more people (wo are trust worthy offcourse) to check the messages. So the admins can keep their minds focussed on the more "important" matters

    Post count

    I agree with ircghost, im a registered/licensed user with only a few posts. I think the boards have gotten a lot better now with the 20 post minimum, and i know as long as my posts aren't crap they'll most likely pass.
    (I hope this one does :P )

    Keep it like this

    I'm a new user also I registerd only a couple of days ago, I was first mad at the "system" But when I took the time to read the right forums, I quikly came to the conclusion that this is a great rule indeed! I think you should even consider to increase the line form 20 to atleast 40, so at the end you'll only have "real' users. but that's just my humble opion:wink:

    This is the screen that we get after posting. It dissapears too fast and on top of this it is not CLEAR that your post will not appear immediately.

    I think that it should be a better way to let us know about this. I have double posted thinking that there was some kind of problem. I just remember to have read the noemal "Thank you for your post" but nothing about the forum been moderated in this way for starters.

    You should put a screen telling the posters that their post is not going to appear until it is moderated. If it exist I didn't see it anywhere or it passed to fast.

    Thanks.

    you have exactly 3 posts - do you really consider that as
    a "high" post-count?

    All posts are saved here, even if you not see them, we can
    exactly determine how much a user posted. You never posted
    more then the 3 posts mentioned above, so I see no reason
    to complain, sorry

    I used to have a fairly high post count, until I came back from a long time of absence, now I have only 1 post or so, and can't post and threads.

    Things won't change for at least a while...
    This mesure was taken before the coming of DT 4.0, because there were too many guys, that didn't even dare to read the warnings, who didn't stop asking 'when will DT 4 be out'... DT staff and customers where kinda tired to say 'when it'll be out'.

    This is one of the reasons of that mesure.

    If you don't want to be moderated, you have 2 possibilities... You wait until you have 20 posts, or you register (and thus you'll have access to DT Pro when it'll be done)

    edit : added the underlined text, to clear things

    I'm wondering if this isn't too much extra work for the mods?!

    In my opinion a one-time delay after registering would be much better... maybe 48 hours...

    Yes, I believe 20 posts is too much, 10 would be much and much better. I'm not a spammer, so when I post something it is useful, and then its not really easy to get 20...

    see: if you're here for 3 years and you posted "only" 15 posts,
    where is the problem then to wait until one of our moderators
    unlock your postings?

    On the other hand: if you have many questions and/or need
    often help or you post frequently -> you reach 20 posts in no
    time. You have no disadvantage if you are below 20 posts,
    except that theres a slight delay for your postings and you
    can't use the board-PM. I mean, common, you posted 15 posts
    since 04/2004 -> that means that you posted only ~7 posts/
    year, do you really can't wait until a mod unlocked it?
