What's the point in joining if you can't contribute anything, even for a week?

I've joined several forums which dont let you post, I've not had a problem with that. If I liked the place I still read everything and stuck around. Most spammers wont stick around just to place a link, a lot just forget.

I feel like that would do a lot more bad than good. It would discourage and isolate the new members that actually want to contribute even more. Plus I don't feel like there's a big problem with spam here at all.

I don't see why genuine posters should have to lose out to a few spammers who are dealt with anyway.

I really think posts made in the Current Events Philosophy and Religion threads should count towards post count, that's where a lot of the most well-written thought out posts are,and where the best discussions are, and I think there should be some recognition for that.

I think moderation should be stricter. Posts with close to zero content (f.ex just "lol") should be deleted. Less crap to sift through when reading through threads.

Not wanting to go all nazi, but there could also be a limit on the size of signatures. I know there's a limit on how much text (and code) there can be in a sig, but it doesn't take much text to link to a large picture or two. Maybe there's a way one could have limit in lines instead. I've seen it on other forums, but I don't know if it's possible with vbulletin.

That'll happen when I get paid for doing this

It's not really a big enough problem to enforce a strict rule. Anyone who makes one with an excessively sized picture is asked to change it or has it removed anyway.
