I've had an idea. Is it possible to only make the crap shack accessable for say people with 50+ posts? That would stop the re-regers (DBD, UkX etc), and it would mean the first view of the forum isn't the CS.

Scott, I understand what you're saying but that sort of defeats the purpose of making it a forum open to everybody, including new members. Also I wouldn't be surprised if something like that made UkX make 50 stupid posts elsewhere in teh forum just to get access - he seems so intent on returning to this forum I'd imagine he'd go to that length, too :p

Perhaps 200pts of reputation before you could gain access to the CS might work better.

Whoa no way that limits it even more...
We have 16 staff members, I'm sure two idiots that reregister often isn't that big of a problem.

I just thought new members could earn the right to spam freely.

Yeah but rep is so iffy, though. Somebody can have 50 posts in the San Andreas forum and have below 200 reputation points. The ony real way to get big rep is to post some sort of GTA IV finding or post in the Off-Topic forum, and that limits it greatly.

I just have this feeling that the CS needs some sort of restriction to keep new members from causing trouble in the CS.

Depends, took me months for 200 Rep , So a normal member could have it in a week or so if he was good on behavior

Most of the problems came from Veterans, people that have been here for a semi long time at least

What if the CS was given a trial for a couple of weeks. If everyone was well behaved it stayed open, however should members start acting up the CS is closed immediately.

Were already voting for it to be open or closed, and I'd guess anybody being a prick gets warning points and banned eventually.

Plus i can guarantee someone would come along and ruin it for everybody else.

I have an idea on how to keep rereg's out, but I obviously don't want to share too much of it since this is a public forum The only downside is vBulletin doesn't support it by default, so I'd have to find a plugin for it somewhere...

The poll isn't done yet.

And I do think a post minimum for seeing and using the CS is a good idea, but more like 5 or 10 rather than 50 or more. It's only so people don't reregister and lurk the CS.

I really don't see a problem with that. Hell, the higher our usercount the better, right? I think the problem comes when they start posting. I'll explain my idea in the Staff Lounge later today and maybe you guys can help me see if it's a feature already or if we have to find a plug-in.

That's what I meant, to avoid registrees going straight for the CS to wreak havoc.
