Well, seriously I think most of the warez threads and posts is mainly due to thanks meter. I don't know what joy these noobs get by filling the thanks meter. Seriously they think that posting links of paid apps will fetch them more thanks. Due to this also many a times spam thread are made which results in bloating of general section and theme section. They just make threads and threads about unuseful stuff just for thanks. I don't say sharing is bad. Making thread about some useful or good stuff is fine but why spam. I think you people should add something like -1 or thumbs down button which cancels the thanks count. This could seriously decrease some amount of trolls and spammers as no one would like a -ve meter. If noobs are so mad in getting thanks they would then also be afraid of getting negative meter.

I think, then you need a method to get the posts even in this forum and not in e.g. dev-forum.

You mean, the number of posts is a sign / measure of quality? I dont think so in general, look at some threads in dev-forum. It would start a running to collect postcountings with "when comes update", "Yeah", "Gr8", ..., and Q's without searching - like already now.

Its a pretty good suggestion.
Maybe give it to people with 50+ thanks.
That would solve the quality of posts problem mentioned by Martin.

Yeah, 50+ post will be a good option. And I think a ban or infraction should be provided if the count hit too much -ve ( eg. -30~-40 ).

No, imo, the run for collecting thanks would start also - resp. the number of thanks !could also have to say nothing about quality - see actuallity.

i think idea about -ve meter and this power being only given to members with 50+ thanks is very nice...........negative meter can be upto some point and then after that his account gets banned.........

mod should really consider this one..........

hmmm... i have another suggestion...
currently, every sub-forum (for eg, our fit's) has a single moderator...
but its practically impossible for any mod to read each and every post, to find if someone's breaking rules in any way...
and afaik, all mods currently handle atleast 2-3 sub-forums...

so, why not make a committee of "sub-moderators", consisting maybe 4-5 ACTIVE members of a sub-forum...they co-ordinate with the moderator and each other, have a few powers as well as responsibility, and their powers and responsibilities are restricted to their sub-forum only...not whole of xda...

this actually has potential, but again, like every other thing in the world, it does have its own limitations...

and regarding the -ve meter, mods should have the power as to who should have access to it, and who shouldnt...(i mean not everyone should be able to press the -ve button, unlike the thanks meter button)

I completely agree with you.
