Valid concerns have been raised concerning the quality of content being submitted by new members in efforts to gain points.I would like to emphasize our commitment towards maintaining the quality of content and the sense of community that exists.Measures have been put in place to ensure that all posts by new members are manually approved until they reach the 10 approved messages threshold then they can post freely. This technique isn't fool proof but we feel it's a first line of defense against spamming and poor/lazy posting.

On another note i feel that the communities attitude towards new members needs to be adjusted. Since you find the community to be a nice place, it's only natural that others would want to be a part of it too and growth is good. It's understandable to want to protect the sense of community but let us embrace growth whether organic or stimulated.

Thank you once more for being a part of this community.

I think being a NV is an experience. One has to learn the ropes before you figure your way in this madhouse. 10 posts is a good benchmark. I think admean you should hide those terms and conditions in the fine print in small font before it is abused. Na tumia Osungu.dll ile ngumu so that it is another hurdle to understand.
