We at Northern Country Morels would like to thank all members for their contributions to this site, but it has come to the attention of the Administration/Moderation team that many new members are now posting various-meaningless posts just to gain their ten posts. Many of these posts disrupt the flow of the threads and some are even off topic. We would like to ask new members to please refrain from posting just smilies or short threads without a specific point. These threads will be deleted, by discretion of the moderating team, and the member will lose that post towards their count.
This means that if a member has only posted ten times and we remove one of them, they will lose their privilege to access the restricted areas of the forum. If a member with ten post has posted more than one that is deemed to have no content or is off topic, then they will lose the number of posts that were deleted and will have to post posts with valid content however many times to regain access to the restricted forums.
If the member continues these actions we will issue a warning which if continued will lead to a temporary ban. We try our best to avoid any bans so please try to stay within the rules on these types of posts.
If this continues to be a problem we will have to resort to posting restrictions for all new members which would take from the time of the team. We may even have to further restrict access to the maps which seem to draw more of the members who only post ten times and leave.
Please see the forum rules if you have any questions: faq.php?mode=rules
As of the 16th of April, 2009, we will start removing posts that we deem inappropriate or without meaning when it pertains to a thread. It has come to this because many new members are posting their ten posts, that are considered without meaning, just to gain access to the maps and other forums and are not contributing to the overall content of the forums. The information contained on all of the pages at NCM are free of charge and we would like to keep it that way, all we ask from you as a member in return is to add meaningful content pertaining to the threads.
We encourage everyone to be a family on here and enjoy themselves. Post as many times as you want and ask as many questions as you need to know. If you need help, there are many members on here that will help you out without even asking for anything in return. Just remember that there is no thing as a stupid question. Many of us are here to gain knowledge and friends so keep posting and enjoy your time at Northerncountrymorels.com.
Thank you for your time,
-The NCM Moderation team
