    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?

    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 :)

    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.

    Nope, far from 50 posts. A relevant sub forum maybe? So we're not spamming this thread :)

    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!
