New user permissions!

Postby Shade » Fri Feb 29, 2008 8:11 pm

I have changed the user permissions to get more users in the community. :)

Guests: Attachments not available, Download list not available
Users, 0 posts: Attachments available, Download list not available
Users, >1 post: Attachments available, Download list available

So why this Decision?

Lot of people search in the internet for downloads. They come, they click, they download, they go away - without to have a look at the forums. Sometimes its pure laziness. With the new user permissions i want to animate the people to have a look at the forums, and maybe to stay here for a while. Maybe they find some interesting Threads, etc. Finally, they would be glad about these permissions. :P
That is the general idea.
And if someone really dont like this community, he has the chance to post easily in the Off-Topic forums and download his needs.

Good idea. I hope that will end this zero post user wave.

Yeah, I hate it when I'm searching for something and when I find it I need to sign up.

UT99.org is no "only-download-page"! I want to animate the users to look in our forums and to write something...

Thats why i have decided to change the user permission.

Okay, 5 posts is maybe a bit to hard... i will think about it ;)

EDIT: Okay, i have set it to 2 posts! :)

I have to agree. Normally the members sign up for taking part in the community.

Maybe you should add a few mirrors to downloads or something so that non-members can download some major stuff.
And maybe this will start a 2 post spam wave.

I dont think so, they will rather post in Off-Topic in "What are you listening to?".

But okay, we will see... its a try.

Yeah i think it's a good idea too. Went to check out the downloads page after my first post here and got the 'you must have 2+ post...' reply.

Should emphasis the community aspect rather than just 'download and run' behaviour.
