    Do you think not allowing newbies to start new threads would eliminate a lot of the junk threads like "an ATT retail employee told me 3g iphone 64 gb is coming!!!"

    you know, just make them contribute to other threads until they have say 50 posts? then they can start new threads? sound cool?

    What if they joined because they need help? A lot of newbs join that way.

    Or stop members from posting "junk" POLLS

    Yea ... what we want is a bunch of newbies posting dumb answers to 50 questions before they can finally post their own question (which is the real reason they came to the forum). NOT a good idea!!!

    Cheers.

    Since there's already one fairly detailed discussion about this, we don't need another one. Also we welcome your opinions on this topic, but it is not up to a vote -- decisions like these rest solely with the administrators of MacRumors. Thank you, and please use the link Eraserhead provided above.
