Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

A proposal to change the rules regarding posting in this group [View all]

I think it would be helpful if there were restrictions in place on who could post in GC/RKBA. Standards that would help keep the troublemakers out and may improve the reputation of GC/RKBA as it will appear we are making an effort to police our own.

To be able to post in GC/RKBA one must first:

Have been a member of DU for at least a year.

Have at least a 1000 posts.

Have less then 5 hidden posts in the past 90 days.

Anyone who does not meet the above three criteria and does post in GC/RKBA will be blocked until the 3 requirements are satisfied. These requirements would be pinned under a title such as "Warning! Read this before posting!" so few would have the excuse they didn't know the rules. Those blocked will be unblocked once the requirements are met. I had asked krispos42 permission to post this and he replied in the affirmative and said that Admin could put in place the software which do the above automatically. He also suggested I cross post this in Meta which I will do.

It appears to me that a great majority of regulars already satisfy the requirements and while some may complain about the hidden posts restriction, I do not believe it's a valid complaint as it is very easy not to have any hidden posts here at DU. One needs to be very aware of community standards before making a post. I have just one this year and I knew it was going to be alerted on and hidden before I posted it. I also think the 1 year/1000 post requirement will prevent almost all trolls, zombies and troublemakers from ever posting here as they will end up being Mirted or PPR'd long before meeting those two requirements.

Basically, pro gun people will have to prove themselves before being able to post here. New DU members who are pro gun control will be able to post in the new gun control group which is being formed.
