Question New trolls - non supporters

How about non supporters being given say only 20 posts, after that they can't post until they become a supporter?

Getting sick of the new trolls that have just appeared recently, all of whom are not supporting the site.

Good idea in principal but Pottsy would never have it

Also, what would happen with people who have been members years with thousands of posts but never paid?

+1.

Something has got to be done, 90% of forums charge 10 a year so for how much it is on here I think its just plain wrong not joining anyway for all the help and advice you get and like you say it will help to filter the idiots out too.

It wouldnt affect the posts they have done would it?

Would it not just encourage them to join now if they wanted to post regularly.

Been asked lots and lots buddy. Pottsy wants it to be a free resource and as a result will stay that way.

I think we just need to report and ban- they will get bored

Was thinking for people signing up from now on etc

Agree its not likely to happen though. Just need to keep reporting the posts & hopefully they will get banned etc

Yes it is.

And if they are supporters then where can we go to bad mouth them without them knowing?

At one of our honda forums even the build threads/projects are locked for non-paying users. Not saying it's good or bad. But we also have all discounts etc locked for non-paying users so that it would benefit you to become a memeber to take part of discounts/group buys etc

It still can be a free resource of information as they would still be able to read threads and get information, they just wouldn't be able to post without becoming a supporter.

Surely the mods should just be on "anti-troll" duty

As a non-paying member I have to agree with this. Would certainly get rid of a lot of cr*p that is now coming up on the forums and ruining my procrastination time.

Just to say, I'm currently waiting to purchase the civic before I start buying stickers for it...
