2. If a mod suspects argument or flames between members, the involved should be notified to stop doing so on the forums and to take the fight to other places such as PMs instead.

Other than that I have no problems with the current system.
Good ideas

I like. And agree.

Particularly the 'useful' quotient...

Lol my dad cut the trip short.

I thought I'd relax a little by getting on UCP after rushing from the middle of Oregon all the way back home in a night.

4) When it is useful (for the thread) they automatically get a rep-point,allowing them to post freely in the forums. What is useful has to be discussed and stated clearly.
5) Create a "sticky" code of conduct thread. Clear rules and guidelines about what we prefer them to post.This should automatically be linked to after joining the forums. The mods will get clear guidelines what to regard as a useless thread/post and to lock/delete in which case.
6) Anyone that has over 10% useless posts can be trown back into the Newbie forum !!!
7) The 10% rating will have to be set by a new button in each post. Click it and it gets the mods' attention. They can easily filter through all the posts. Everyone is able to report them and should report them if possible.
8) Raise the age on which people are allowed to join. Offcourse they can always click yes,im 16 but it will also keep some out. Current members should be granted amnesty This is mainly to keep out the children that join in and start posting rubbish. IN GENERAL older members are way more serious about things
9) For the newer forum membrs create a limit to the amount of posts a day,something like 10 or 20 If they get enough rep,this can be raised.

10-12) Fill in other members' suggestions, i ran out shortly before the dozen

I hope something useful comes out of this to stop the "newbie-terror".

Cheers,
Sjoerd.
Alot of thought put into your idea's but not very easy to put into action.

I assume mods have a life away from UCP, and some of your ideas would need constant mod attention.

Lay off newbies, most of them go away after a couple of days. they get bored easily. And it's dumbass senior members such as myself that need to be sorted out more than newbies.

- Correct
- Also correct
- Not quite true- look at a certain couple of members I shall name no names of...
- And correct. Crushingly honest. I'll join you in boot camp. You bring the illegal stash of weed, I'll bring the illegal stash of Fruit Pastilles.

I don't know about you guys but we should implement a Sesame Street Sub-Forum into the Multimedia category.

But, to get back to seriousness.

All of those things that you mentioned would involve a lot of my time Drakkie. You guys may think doing this moderator stuff is fun and easy, but it's time consuming, and can get annoying with various floods of spam. Half the time you guys don't see it because we get to it and shoot the thread and member down, within minutes of the post... to make sure your virgin eyes will not be tainted.

Well this thread was mostly meant as an opening for the discussion. I agree my ideas/suggestions went a bit far,but that was (partially) intended. In a debate it is always the middle way that gets chosen and rarely the extreme way. some of the ideas posted here are pretty good(better as mine,i must admit).

Now i am just curious what the mods would think would work in this case ?
