Rep Requirement for News Posts.

485 Views 27 Replies 17 Participants Last post by  ENTERPRISE
Dear OCN Moderators,
I have seen an increase in spam in the news section, so I think a rep requirement of 35 (the same as selling something) and a post requirement would be nice to prevent this from happening. Maybe a little lower, but just something to keep this from happening, I like looking for real news, and these spammers are hurting this site and I think it's an easy fix. Please do something about it.

No where else would it make sense though right? I mean I see their logic behind putting it in the news section, but spam in the CPU (just an example) section? You really think so?


A 10 rep requirement would suffice I think.

But how long will this limit last before those spam bots spam 5 posts within 150 seconds? And then we have more spam to take care of? What if the bots got smarter and repped? That would just make a mess.
EDIT: well a rep requirement would make it more difficult at least, maybe a unique rep requirement too? This would make it harder.

Well soon you will have more rep, trust me, getting 10 rep can be done in a few days


And yes, DAMN spam to HELL!!!!

rep is used effectiviely for the for sale thread with out too much complaining, 10 rep i think would mostly fix the problem we are having. Maybe not 100% fool proof, but then again, what is?!
