Good to see all the heavy ton guys are in one thread.......all the posts here are logical and reasonable......which is hardly seen these days. I think there should be some restrictions. I don't like the idea of sending the topic to the mod. In tha case you need to have full time mod for sure. But i guess, one should have 100+ posts to be eligible to open a thread. It takes some time to understand the environtment here and a century should be enough. thanks.

I think we need to attach a poll with this thread now, i should have done this initially. Mods, is there any way to do it now?

Some people may thrive on one-liners, others on match thread posts. Esp after the World Cup started we've seen a good increase of members even reaching First Class Cricketer status, but I certainly cant generalise that all their posts are (or are not) good quality. Essentially BanglaCricket cant be expected to be a free-for-all forum, there must be some quality control mechanism extra of the existing board rules in regulating threads.

Since we're talking about number of posts as the qualifier, I'm assuming entirely that it wont be dependent on "Club Cricketer" or "One day cricketer status" but a certain number of posts. I somehow am not convinced that just 50 or 100 posts might be enough for quality attaining objectives. Setting a minimum number of even 100 or 200 could hypothetically encourage some posters to post separately and get their post count up and thus "qualify" as thread starting members.

I really do second the motion that there has to be a thread review system by the mods for threads that new members want to start. So, Just throwing open the thought that Mods could perhaps delegate this responsibility to Banglacricket Staff members... and most staff are tenured "Test Cricketers" here anyway. No offense guys, but I for one dont exactly know what "staff" do, so maybe this'd be ideal.

Just create a blacklist of a person creates 2 faltu thread then the person is on the blacklist which means they woul be temporally banned, obviously if they try toc ome with a new alias there IP's would match

You cant stop waterflow,it will flow one way or another,impose too much bans and the members will divert,much like the WC crowd.So I believe the present status is the best,and mods are always there to delete a thread if necessary(I have to admit,some even love to delete when it is not necessary)

And the Controlist one's,you sound too much like Bush

the simple truth is: freedom protects us all in a subjective universe, where it's a matter of time before we're the target if that freedom is subject to the tyranny of unilateral power... besides, i think there's ample storage in cyberspace. so let's just choose not to deal with something we don't like, rather than try to silence it... just a thought.

i say live and let live... and let God judge when it's time.

Alright, enough is enough. Seeing 7 of coolguy121's 7 threads on his sign up day, reinforces the need for a policy to keep these newbies at check. One of the threads has been rather nicely dimissed outright by IanW, another just exposes his shallow understanding of BD cricket, and so on.

Can we please take a firm stand on some sort of policy?

2ndly.. I understand there are some new members now, but their repetitive postings of just

is at times seemingly a violation of forum rules (ie. one liners... without substance). I sincerely hope this doesnt get out of hand. It does bring down the quality of threads.

A balance needs to be struck.

For example people should be allowed to say what they want or open threads but only if it is not offensive or just "wrong", e.g. a thread which someone started about what Habibul Bashar would do after he retires including speculation about him being a farmer etc, which was just an excuse to engage in Bashar bashing (lol..has a ring to it...Bashar bashing) and personal ridicule on him. Anyway the right thing was eventually done and this pointless topic was deleted.

Watching a lot of controversial posts last couple of days, I think we need to give a second thought about open threads.

Mods, is it still possbile to attach a poll with this thread? If yes, then please do it.

Yes I have seen this being implemented in other threads..... like no one with posts below 100 can open threads... I think this will really help the cause a lot

What we could do is

Newbies CAN NOT open more than 2 threads per day until they reach 50 posts.

This can be secretly implemented and not documented in the Board rules.... otherwise, it defeats the purpose.

This may be self-defeating. Instead of a few (or perhaps more than a few) "useless" threads, the perpetrators will now be compelled to swamp existing threads with "me too", "one liner quotes" and other such annoying artifice to increase their post-counts. Imagine the burden on our moderators then!

The best thing to do is to ignore these threads. There really no need for some one and his/her 50 other friends to post "stupid thread" and what not. This keeps the so called stupid thread alive with even more stupid posts and ad nauseum ad infinitum.

If y'all let it go or use the report button, the moderators can take appropriate action without things getting too far out of hand.

Patience is often a virtue. Ask our cricketers

Mods: What are the options for members if someone thinks that a NEW thread is utterly redundant and needs to merged with a current OLD thread? Plz advice.

You can either report it or pm a mod of your choice.

You can already do that when you "Edit Post" and go Advanced. Afaik, there's an option given there that says "Delete Message"

personally, i find two liners about an ongoing match situation to be the most annoying. what is the point of posting to state that a team is 1-0 and then again, what a fantastic freekick, followed by, oh nom, it is 1-1 now! why not wait till the end of the match and post one final analysis?
