Doubt it, it would have to be done by actually clicking through all the foreign name voters to see if they've stuck around.

yeah there's virtually no way any type of minimum-post rule could be enforced.

welcome to the internet.

on vbulletin?

most certainly. it's another matter whether the administrator has those features enabled (doubtful).

and just so people understand the gravity of this, the mark would be 9-14 votes with people that have more than 100 posts. not such a wide margin there.

it's getting pretty fucking tedious to see people with 10, 15 posts registering their opinion when they only have a nominal interest in music to begin with.

a courtesy limit of about 100 posts would do just fine.
For once you propose a very good idea.

Basically I voted no because I'd never even heard of the band. I'm not a musical noob. All I know from reading this thread is they are techno? Let's induct bands like Kraftwerk before we try to induct these guys.
The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

Can't people just not vote when they haven't heard of a good band?

I think that concept is far too complicated for some of our members.

I still think only yes votes should count & that 20 yes votes gets you in.
