Default Do we really want new members?

If Gprime really wants new members, then maybe we should be able to view the newbies' posts. I know I wouldn't have stuck around if I had to wait so long to post when I first joined.

I made this same suggestion on the moderator board almost 2 years ago but Blackice ignored it.

I think it's pretty much the only way to prevent spam though. The last message board I had had captcha and email verification and still ended up with hundreds of spams.

The problem is...there isn't much traffic here anyway so I highly doubt we're going to get much spam anymore. Although it would also suck to see waves of spam bots come in after 'letting up' on the tight policy there. So heck...I'd have to agree that we need to be more lax with that 'anti-spam' measure there.

There is nothing that prevents new members from posting

You're right. But regular members can't read those posts for a long period of time. As a new member I'd think the site was dead. Well, more dead than it actually is.

Yeah, but their first posts are moderated and will have to be approved by you or john. Why can't we allow them to post freely and just have additional moderators?

Might as well give everyone Mod-ship, the way things are going.

Also, Was searching for the greatest soundboard ever, and gPrime was the first thing to come up.

Bad idea. If everyone was given modship, that would include you.

Exactly....and even I question my ability to handle being a mod. So making everybody a mod is simply out of the question and being a member of gPrime for a "long time" alone doesn't cut it. Although there are a few of our veterans who have accepted that job.

Inactive everyone is more like it. I'm somewhat active but there are no mod tools built into the app I use on my phone.

Trying to initially remember what brought me to Gprime...Think it was albinoblacksheep.com which is also a dead site :/ That and I was like 13-14. Which ultimately may mean, we just don't have immaturity appeal anymore :D

Gprime brought me to ABS!

My draw was seeing everyone talking about everything and anything, and the hilarious comments that abounded. I stalked the board occasionally for a good 6 months before joining.

I agree with Blackice. It's pretty much the fact that the board is next to dead that keeps it dead.

What if someone gets to hosting a good CS server, and we slowly get members like that? You know, like advertising through the server. I think Heyyou is good at that modding shit, let's make him come up with a killer CS mod.

Ofcourse this will never work, just a batshit insane idea that came to me.

Also a bunch of the people who constituted the body of regulars back in the good ol' days are now of college age and hella busy.

Maybe Gprime's golden age really has passed.

True...I've only been coming on periodically and I'm still the top poster in this forum. Do we need to hold another mod/super-mod election so we can be guaranteed new active ones?

That might sound good to you, but since it was you who posted the idea...chances are if we go through with it we'll get 30-50 more 'Liquid Snakes' in this forum. I think we only need one here to keep us 'amused'...any more would just be plain annoying. However, seeing as how this forum might just 'die' in our eyes...we might have to go with such a desperate plan...though it's not necessarily a bad idea either. I mean we could just do the same with garrysmod and etc.

If new members can post, I'll never come back! And I'm all for nudity.

Well, at least you're for the nudity. Besides that, it would suck if we lost you just because a couple of "newbies" came in.

Sadly I think the glory days of Gprime ended when Gabe and Sam got banned.
