All of you are aware of the members registering everyday, but they don't even post and just digs up and snatch things here in the forum. Peeps we like to call leechers.

Starting today, I will now implement the hiding of some of the forums to the newly registered members. Meaning it will have a certain requirement in order for a member to view it.

This will be implemented on our two most important forum, the SCANDAL Gallery and the SCANDAL Media forum.

A member needs a minimum of 50 post for them to view the said forums.

So members what do you think, this is open for suggestions. The required post cannot be reduced anymore, but suggestion to increase it can be considered.

Increased post requirements from 25 to 50 as of December 12, 2009.

Thanks mc~.

Well, I did spend time on those gifs and ~KaKouYi~ as well but it was my fault in not putting watermarks, so for me its really okay at the same time its not.

Lesson Learned

i agree with kono mc~..

for everyone please use watermarks to your work so you will not be discredited.. for anyone who doesn't know what watermarks are, its a simple text, logo, or emblem signifying that you are the creator of the gif or images you made..

again,

Please put watermarks

mc~,just my thoughts.

A 25 post requirement is good and i know where this is coming from,but at the same time they may just post something like "Oh yeah thanks.",in other words,spam.You might want to increase the post requirement then,to give them more time to fall in love with this forum.Will this requirement be visible to them?

EugeneAng is right when he says that these people will put 25 simple messages just for can see all the thread and after that, they will post no more message. And I agree that it's irritating when people comes on a forum only for taking infos, pics..., and when they don't want to give any info to the forum. There is no perfect solution, but is it possible to add other conditions to stay in the forum, like new members must give an presentation of himself for example? And it's right that it would be good to increase the number of messages to 50.

Nope that's not possible. Once a post is deleted it will be counted on the poster.

well, i personally does not like the system.

u guys can flame me for saying this but there sure is people who just like to stay low and support their favorite band etc

not all people are leachers, i don't noe what happened to you to make you said that and if people don't get it here they will go else where to get the media files or just simply forget about this band that you guys are so proud of .

Good idea, then just go to the other sites to get the media files. There's many SCANDAL blog out there. Happy

This forum is not just for SCANDAL media, we are here to discuss things we love that rotate around SCANDAL.

So if you can't do an easy 50 posts, we can't do anything about that. BLEH!

just to clarify things, i am just voicing my opinions out.
aint that what a forum is for ??

and the guy did ask for opinions. i doubt he's referring to opinions of others opinions though.

and if your way of loving this group is to put up a barrier and have fun among yourself there's no point in opening a forum anyway. and also not spread the 'love' among other netizens, i don't really how much you love them by not promoting them.

Yes, we know not all people are leechers but if you don't post and do stuff here doesn't that make you one?

I know you can support your favorite artist/band from behind but wouldn't it be great to share it with others?

As mc~ said, you could go to other sites for the media. All I'm saying is that, please do post to threads. It's that easy to get access to the media here.

We work hard for some of the files there.

Agree with kono and mc~ there are many many other blogs, forums, websites that provide the media as well.

Well we just don't want people who sign up here to be leechers.

I had to post a lot to join the media section, but its definatly worth it. And its an anti-leechers method that works great.
