suggestion about new member rights on posting

Postby Welsh Wizard » Fri Apr 26, 2013 11:36 am

Following a thread in one of the forums, an idea has come up that may be advantageous to us all.
Not sure if admin can do some thing along the lines of way the thread has progressed.

quotes from the thread below.

Tman wrote:Yep, good idea.
I remember writing a screed about someone's problem with the 6.5" vs 6.75" Triumph front wheel spindle problems, looking up years and part numbers and the b*stard never even said thanks or whether it was sorted or not.

Maybe if such a condition was implemented in might help avoid the frustration of no response from the poster,
Or even maybe make it a condition that they have to post an intro before they can post anything else.
I know on a number of computer forums I used to frequent that you had to post at least 25 times to a thread already running before you could start a topic yourself.
