Randomness post requirement
« on: February 18, 2011, 02:20:28 am »
Due to many new members spamming and trolling can there be a requirement for posting in randomness such as 20 posts. I'm not going to list these people, but I believe they are mainly Casio Kingdom and Casiocalc users who came here for Prizm stuff. Also can there be a 5 post minimum for using emoticons because emoticon spam is becoming common too. Lastly could there be a short mandatory quiz on forum posting for when you register here. That could help people understand our rules before they post.

List of stuff I need to do before September:
1. Finish the Emulator of the Casio Prizm (in active development)
2. Finish the the SH3 asm IDE/assembler/linker program (in active development)
3. Create a partial Java virtual machine  for the Prizm (not started)
4. Create Axe for the Prizm with an Axe legacy mode (in planning phase)
5. Develop a large set of C and asm libraries for the Prizm (some progress)
6. Create an emulator of the 83+ for the Prizm (not started)
7. Create a well polished game that showcases the ability of the Casio Prizm (not started)

I guess this would be a good place to post this link.
Forum etiquette

Also, there's the rules button at the top ;)

Yeah I thought about that before, but then they might just use the Misc section, like Thegame/i am a troll did, and not spam as much, but troll more. I don't want to restrict the randomness section even more, though, since it was always part of Omnimaga. Not that restricting sub-forums based on post counts is possible under such setup, anyway.

If a member has 0-2 posts but negative respect, this should be an indication that this member migth be troublesome, anyway. All rules applies in Randomness except for rule 7 and 8.

Note, I don't think it's just Prizm users, because we got several TI-Nspire users lately too. It is just the side effects of Omnimaga increasing popularity. People google for calc games and if they got a TI-Nspire or a Casio Prizm, Omnimaga is pretty much the site that comes first most of the time. had the same problem back in 2004.

I'm about to temporary return as admin to update the Awards section and maybe work on forum themes, and I thought about maybe temporary adding some extra moderators to the team that will still show up as regular members. (Like Quigibo)

I'll also probably clean the spambot account log and run a scan before returning back to member, then in Late March I'll probably return as admin to prepare the programming contest.
