Re: Alternative to 10 post rule
^Two examples of abusing the 10 post rule! Go and enjoy posting in the Dev Section now!!!
You guys can change the rule to 100 post it still isn't gonna matter its gonna get abused regardless... When I started I opened a thread asking for help on my phone and got my first 10 post that easily.
The mods are never around to catch that 24/7 they are busy lurking where they are needed and handling reported post...
THE ONLY way that I can think of is anybody that opens a DEV thread have the ability to delete post. I opened 20+ dev threads and the first 3 pages are DOWNLOADING NOW, FLASHING NOW, WILL REPORT BACK LATER, THANKS, AWESOME, ETC... Having the ability to delete useless post will have smaller threads and real Development post. You see threads with 5000+ comments more than 75% are useless posts.
Having the OP of Dev threads can delete post will be more helpful than increasing the post count of new members. After all the purpose of dev threads are to report bugs, and anything that has to do with development.
Control for OP of Development threads to delete post. It will also help MODS concentrate on other areas such as themes, Q&A, General etc. Having the ability to delete post for a thread OP ONLY in the Dev section isn't a major "POWER" to give.
