Chatbox removal discussion

A lot of people are now spamming and making unnecessary posts and derailing some threads so I think mods should be able to tag a post as off-topic or something?

why did u guys do this??
We essentially reverted it back to the old hatbox rules. This was done for a number of reasons, as outlined in this thread. We'd love to have you (and others) back on! Just contribute a few posts to the forum :)

It's a little comforting knowing the gen public can't just see hatbox without signing in now too. Thanks to the great staff team for being so receptive to the community feedback :)

Hatbox is only useable for users with >50 posts.
I suggest to change this requirement to [number of posts] times [number of member days] = 3000.

So, 10 posts over a year or 50 posts over 2 months etc.

or 400 posts in a week see if someone has the appetite for it haha.

I like the idea but unfortunately don't have the ability to do implement a dynamic post count requirement.

The post count requirement will likely change in the upcoming week - at present 50 posts is a trial for the week.

Thanks! :)

Can the post requirement be lowered though? 50 is a lot for a forum that is not that active (which I know is the problem itself, but it's hard to reach 50 without spamming unnecessary posts) - especially when just something like 3-7 posts are made everyday in the entire forum.
Hi iStudent, got any tips?

After some discussion with the other Admins (Isuru) we have decided to lower the post-count to 25. This still means that there is a requirement of good-quality posts to get access but makes it more accessible to those using the forum.

Again, this is subject to change and feedback is always appreciated!
