Posts for Ranks?
« on: January 20, 2017, 02:42:14 am »
Heya, just a thought regards the posting for ranks system. Surely this only encourages spam? I understand in your thread you say 'We trust that the beloved members of our community will only post when it matters!' but a system based off time/rating posts would mean people;
a) Will probably spend longer looking at the forums and keeping up to date.
b) Encourage more meaningful content within certain boards.
Just two points I thought of. Keep up the good work!  ;)

True. It would probably be better if it was based on time looking at the forum. System could still be abused though as it was mentioned earlier.

Auto refreshers are a marvelous thing to people who abuse

Yes, although a timed-based system could be abused through auto-refreshers; to be honest I'd rather have people auto-refresh, rather than tonnes and tonnes of useless posts, or posts just for the hell of it.
