    Low posting quality

    How about no ability to post for a period of time, I mean a long period of time. Have a welcome statement for new members explaining the wealth of information contained in this site and as a new member they should have plenty to keep them reading for quite a while so there shouldnít be a need for them to post anything. If they donít like it thereís always TOS.
    ETA: And totally shitcan the General Discussion forum!

    Amen to that.

    What happens for the people that are already knowledgeable though? Just because you havenít been a member here for a while, doesnít mean you donít know stuff worth sharing.

    What do you think the chances are of someone new bringing something to the table the SMEís, industry professionals and the BTDT guys have not already hashed out? Maybe you allow a new member to list their credentials and bypass any probationary period. If they bring a high level of knowledge Iím sure they may be known by Mods or other SMEís outside the site. Build the wall!

    I suspect the answer is the usual reason such things happen to an forum: they start as a small/medium sized forum of like minded people with a higher level of knowledge, and as they grow, it gets diluted by more members with less knowledge to impart. I still find the SN ratio pretty good here and way better than other similar forums I stopped visiting a long time ago.

    Also members knowledge can increases to the point that what was new and interesting is now known and just not as stimulating. You reach a certain point where there’s just not that much new anymore.

    Good or bad, GD drives traffic. Traffic pays the bills.
