Yeah I know one month is stupid and all, but I'm just trying to include myself in this supposed forum, while being discrete bout it lol I could say 6 months or ever higher than that, but where would I fit? lol
Anyway, my main point was actually creating a more exclusive forum for the older community to discuss the news (any news) without worrying about newcomers spamming around or any other intrusions. A password would be an idea, but then how would you select the people to tell without being unfair? Also, it would be a lot harder for the mods to make sure only members they approve are allowed to join, and if they did not do that, how would you prevent someone telling everyone else the passwords? The forum age filter was an idea just to prevent that, at the same time making sure that even though everyone would eventually be allowed to join, it would take long enough for them to prove they actually wish to be part of the community.
Oh yeah and actually I decided not to suggest using post numbers because anyone can go there and post lots of crap **spam**, also it would not be fair to those which hardly ever post, but are old members.
see the whole problem with the timer thing of a month or more is that after several months, all the newbies we're keeping out will qualify for the forum, we need a password or something along those lines

I'd trust Silver to pick the right people. Or the whole administrating and moderating team, excluding non-existant people like Umaro and mockery, they just don't have the time and don't know the forum.
I was just kidding.^_^ I know you love me.:cute: But getting back on point, do you think my proposed gem reputation system is possible?
I saw a reputation work fine on other forums, and it's kinda fun. There was some abuse, though. You cannot use such a system to distinguish members too much, though, or give any favors. It may be too hard or too easy to get. On the forum I was -300 reputation gave the person an auto-ban, but such a low reputation was extremely hard to get and required a ton of senior members lowering that person's reputation for about 2 weeks lol.
