Thread: An idea

I have a theory. Maybe we could cut down on so many idiots posting before doing research if we made the site have a trial period of 2 months or so when people could not post as a new user, or could only post in certain forums. Would this be a good idea? is it possible/feasible?

well as long as your not talking about me im all for it.........but you gotta admit they're usually good for a laugh.

and mass, you know i'm not talking about you. You're a very helpful guy. Good looking too.
This thread is for laughs, not really serious. I've just noticed a lot of posts the last few days that were particularly bad. i think i'll link to some of them in a minute.

here's an example. names will not be used to protect the imbecile. Person A asks a question about dosage spacing. Person B, who has run 5 cycles by 20, one winny only, one "deca tabs", calls him a newbie and tells him to do more research.

Actually. 3 months of research is A LONG TIME to do research without posting. How much ARCHIVE READING can one do. If you really research, you can learn most of what you need to know in a week for your first cycle.
I would say NO POSTING IN THE STEROID SECTION for atleast two weeks after membership.
I dont consider just DBOL or just winny tabs a cycle. I consider it a substitute to Creatine phase.

Good point, 3 months is definitely too long.

While I admit this would be nice the fact that many people come on here right before doing something dangerous or foolish makes me hesitate to prevent them from asking a question which may save them from possible harm. In a perfect world they would read first but I think we have seen how many do not. Stopping them from posting wouldn't necessary stop them from moving forward with an ill advised plan while us telling them on a thread directly not to do it would have a much bigger impact.

But what if they wanted to be a post whore in The AR Lounge area only ??

But without the "hook me up with a source " or "help me with a cycle" questions what would we do all day??

How about the "no flaming policy" doesnt take effect until the newbie has been on three months????
