|Posted by: Victor February 26, 2008 08:10 am|
| Starting from March 2008, the access to the General Discussion area will be restricted for new members or those with little participation in history-related discussions.
The basic conditions for access are:
- membership for at least 6 months
- minimum 150 posts in the historical section of the forum.
Those who fulfill at least one of these two conditions and want to receive access to the General Discussion area will post their application here.

Thank God for that!
That should stop the quasi-spammers.
|Posted by: dead-cat February 28, 2008 08:51 am|
|they'll be posting to other sections though. at the end of the day, someone will have to clean up. either in the "general discussion" or somewhere else. that's the curse of spammers.|
|Posted by: Alexei2102 February 28, 2008 08:54 am|
Correct 100 % IMO. Perhaps a new rule in regards to spam should be better. Something like instead of closing some sections, a direct ban towards the user in question ?
|Posted by: Imperialist February 28, 2008 10:11 am|
|The first thing that rule should do is define what will constitute spam in a forum. Information that nobody asked for? Is there a way for someone to find out if the information he/she intends to post in a new thread is "asked" by x% of users?|
|Posted by: Victor February 28, 2008 10:14 am|
That is too extreme.

|Please keep this topic only for subscriptions for teh GD section. Thank you.|
|Posted by: Victor March 01, 2008 11:14 am|
| The measure is now in place. Those who want to participate in General Discussion on the forum and fulfill the above mentioned conditions should apply in this topic.

Filled application! See you all there...

| I do not understand, I meet both requirements!
I've been on this forum since the beginning and participate in the historical section all the time, maybe not lately because I'm so busy, but that's why I come here!!! I do not understand why I am not allowed to use the General Discussion. I have 196 posts in the historical section!

He's right about "he's past".
Let him in!
|Posted by: Victor March 04, 2008 07:20 am|
I think I was pretty clear about this: you need to "file an application" in this topic first. I do not have the time to take every member and see if he/she fulfills the requirments, especially since many are not active any more. So, to save time and unnecessary work, those of you who do not have access to the GD section and meet one of the basic requirements for it, make a post in this topic and you will receive access.
Please read more carefully what I write.
|Posted by: PanzerKing March 05, 2008 05:23 am|
| Actually, it was not very clear because in the U.S., and probably in Romania too...an application is usually a form with questions and requirements. I literally thought there was an application to fill out.
That is why I did not understand!
If I would have known that I just needed to ask in this thread, I obviously would have done it now wouldn't I?
No need to be uptight Victor!

Not very old really, but old enough to count me in.
|Posted by: Jeff_S March 11, 2008 10:23 pm|
| Victor, would it be possible to let those of us who don't have rights to post in General Discussion still read it?
Putting the focus back on the historical sections of the forum, and getting rid of trolls and spammers are admirable goals for sure. But GD was interesting sometimes too, and what harm can it do to let the rest of us read it? Surely if people start moving their spamming or trolling to the historical sections that can be dealt with individually.
Also on a technical note, when the restriction went in to effect, it's as if our earlier posts just vanished. Before the restriction I had about 50% of my posts in GD. Now my "most active" forum is post-WW2 and recent, but that's still only 20%, or 102 posts. I haven't been posting like a madman in other historical sections, so I'm still about 50% in GD I think. The problem it creates is that without counting posts by hand, there is no way to know when I'm over the "150 historical posts" limit and can ask to be allowed back in to GD.

Also, you are welcome to GD forum
|Posted by: Jeff_S March 11, 2008 11:11 pm|
| Thanks, and thanks!
Now for the sake of your health Dragos, please go to sleep.
|Posted by: Victor March 13, 2008 06:50 am|
There is no need to have 150 posts if you have been a member for more than 6 months.
|Posted by: Jeff_S March 20, 2008 11:41 pm|
Thanks for clarifying that. You did say "at least one" of the two conditions, for those who read the initial post carefully.

|Posted by: MMM January 22, 2009 12:53 pm|
|The logic is at risk here... You don't want spam, but I'll be forced to reach 150 posts to gain a "right". So, I'll have to write things just for the sake of numbers! Not quite spam, yet not quite different!|
|Posted by: MMM February 17, 2009 12:22 pm|
| I think I can...
I've fulfilled the 150 posts request - thus, I guess I qualify for a "voice"
May I come in?

I'm new on the forum and I think that the restriction of min. 150 posts on the forum is too much. Say 50 would make sense. Thanks!
|Posted by: dan_531983 June 25, 2010 11:44 am|
| Hi again,
I think I have membership for at least 6 months, but still unable to post comments regarding WW2 eastern front. I also have an interesting video interview with a brave men from div.6 reg. 15 infanterie who escape from the Don Bend encirclement with maj. Rascanescu !!
Dear admins, when it will be possible to have a database for this kind of video interviews with our veterans/ invalids ?
Please grant access. Thanks. Dan.
|Posted by: dragos June 29, 2010 06:59 pm|
|Dan, this restriction applies only to General Discussion sub-forum. You can post in the other sections of the forum, including the Easter Front forum.|

| I am new here as an official member, but i have been visiting this site for the past week as a guest. I wanted to introduce myself and the reasons why i am here and what my specific interests are. From what i've read here the "General Area" is restricted for newbies untill a period of 6 months has passed or i've posted 500+ times to the historical section....is this correct?
I have not tried to post to other area's of this board yet, but let it suffice to say that i am very interested in the extremely obscure and rare topics concerning Romanian forces in WW2 as well as other Axis minor Allies.
My initial take on this site is it is one of a few rare gems on the internet and a gold mine of info and people.
I shall try to post my questions in the correct area very soon
