    Addicts Access

    4xx posts and one year of membership.

    It'll keep the post-whoring down if there is also a time limit.

    Thoughts???

    It isn't paranoia when you KNOW they're out to get you...

    As a reformed post-whore, I'd say that the time-limit would be more than enough. (Oops, I posted again. Sorry.)

    Might as well make it as per the custom title :

    11 dots
    500 posts
    AND invitation only, based on whether your peers rate your input towards AO ???

    But this will only anger the 'let 'em all in' brigade ........
    and doesn't go far enough for the 'keep 'em out' brigade .....

    I feel that the Addicts as is, seems to work, for the purpose that it was constructed for in the first place.
    it MAY be felt that things have changed since then, but I feel that there are still insufficient reasons to change anything, and [therefore] sufficient reasons to leave it as is ......

    And why give Spyder more headaches

    What I'd REALLY like is for the Addicts title and the Senior title to be reversed ..............
    as, for some perverse reason. I think 'Anti-Online Addict' is WAY more than Senior Member ..............

    so that at 275 posts, you get the title 'Senior'
    THEN, at 400 posts you can claim the title ADDICT












    YES : I AM that sad

    I guess it really depends on when we want to disclose all the secrets and mysteries of the Addicts Forum to them and if they are really ready to take upon themselves the added burdens. Can we trust them to safeguard the kingdom before we have trained them up in the ways of an Addict? Do we allow such an apprentice possession of a decoder ring? These questions and others must be answered before we allow them entrance. The previous suggestions do deserve merit.

    Or just make it 11 dots required. Period. I vote for that. There are several good people that made it to 11 before they hit "addict" status, and it's based on merit more than a simple number of posts.

    Uhh, Tyler.. if the Addict's forum is a kingdom then does that make me the King of it? Better yet, does that make me the King and Terr my Queen? Because that's well.. quite interesting?

    Now that's funny! Got your own little hoe thang goin' on.

    11 dotters, that's a great idea. By then their contributions will be known.
