A suggestion for helping folks with their full-time life on the forum and cutting down on the repeated themes from a few constant posters:

Limit posts to 5 per day or 77 per month, which ever comes first. Enforce a 10 minute break between successive posts from the same person.

also

Encourage posters to do creative posts rather than cut and paste from 3rd party sites. We know how to get our own RSA feeds or visit our favorite news or advocate sites.

5 per week

I think a limit of 5 posts a week would make this place a lot more informative, and less hostile, full of drama and histrionics.
The trouble is, some people regularly post more than 5 perfectly helpful and on-topic posts per week.
We'd have to censor them in order to deal with the trouble-makers who want to turn GeorgiaPacking.Org into their own little blog (since they know they can't actually have their own blogs, because nobody would ever visit them there, so they have to come here to make asses of themselves where they can have an audience, most often an unwilling audience).

Such limits invariably kill fora. Selective moderation works, even when it takes excessive time.

Enable the infraction system. Problems will resolve themselves.

You mean a moderator could push a button on a post and it would automatically record an infraction?

After a certain number of these (only the owner would know how many it would take, and have it set), you automatically get banned hitting the threshold number.

A good system? Discussion please. :)

Actually, if all Trump, Clinton, election, and related posts went into one thread, that would solve a lot of problems.

It works like traffic tickets. Different undesirable behaviors have preset penalty points. As time passes, points fall off. Accumulate too many, get an automatic temp ban. Each successive temp ban gets longer, and at some point t-->Infinity.

I also think we should censor words such as "bwahahahaha"

This x1000. I have my page set to show new posts when opening, and there are simply WAY too many election threads. In addition to blocking users, it would be great to block words or phrases, such as, "Clinton, Hitlary, Trump, Trumft, You're stupid, read what I wrote, you're so dumb, troll"...

Irony: Posting a complaint about too many parallel threads in the *second* "What is wrong with the forum" thread. :lol:

It wasn't directed at anyone. I just found it humorous.
