I know a lot of members are making a lot of effort to make sure that the recent events are not repeated. But some things are going to discourage participation, rather than encourage it. You want new members to make posts and ask questions. I know it took me like four months to make my first post, but I don't think that this is how it should be.
Also in this two weeks when they are not allowed to post, will they be allowed to download things from pics and vids forum? Thats what a lot of the current members are mad about, people who sign up just to download the fights and not contribute to the boards.
