I have noticed we get TONS of new members when there is a flagship release around the corner (chances are, its a Pokemon release). Would it be a good idea to temporarily shut down new member signups during flood seasons? Or many limit who can post? Like over 100 posts or been here for more than 2 months... I dont know. It seems that new members just come to spam about whatever "bigRelease.nds" and then some stick around and try to make pokemon hacks then eventually leave. I certainly dont want to be unfair to new members, not at all. Most of them need help and we can do that. Maybe when they go to register,we have them answer a few questions like -did you come here for the new "bigRelease.nds"? and then have them pointed in the right direction, without them needlessly making a new topic for something. -did you come here for flash kit help? then ask which one and send them to the kart section. Or make a kinda...quiz? no... Some sort of identifier for those who have clone karts or soemthing. We gather pictures of various flash karts, and compile a list of questions, ie "what color is the plastic, what color is the PCP, where is the sd slot, is it springloaded, etc -did you come here for modding help? which system? Then send them to whatever system section or tutorial they need help with. Then at the bottom we have an option to join the forums. "Did you have something more specific you need help with? -->" Oh and/or we need to either have new members TYPE OUT that we have no roms and dont supply them, or have another quiz. "Does GBAtemp host roms? yes/no" "Will GBAtemp help you find roms? yes/no" Etc... So here's what is left, tons of unused accounts. Is there a process where an old under 100 post account gets deleted after so many years or something? I understand this is alot of work and probably not feasible or something we want to do, but I feel like it would certainly help out new members A LOT.
