What is the criteria to be considered a real boxing fan as opposed to being a Pactard or Flomo. It seems if u mention either one of these guys u automatically get labeled. I am a Floyd Mayweather but I consider myself a real boxing fan b/c Floyd isn't the only fighter i watch. He's my favorite right now but by no means does that mean once his done fighting all stop watching boxing. I don't consider myself a boxing historian b/c I have recently be come a die hard over the last 5 or 6 years but I was always a casual fan. Is a real boxing fan supposed to be able to recall facts from the past or just have a good understanding of boxing and follow the sport. I wanna know what u guys think. Intelligent responses please

LOL!!!

A while back, Ben and I were toying around the idea of having something like a 20 post count minimum before you could make new topics. I was thinking this would help reduce spam, reduce nonsense posts, and help new members get a feel for the board and what the community is like. I can't remember if it was something that Ben couldn't get to work in testing, or just forgot about doing it.

I have seen some other communities doing this with good results. Many forum communities, not just boxing, and it seems to help. New posters on these systems could only reply to threads until they had something like 15-20 reasonable quality posts. (In other words, just building up your post replays with spam or nonsense posts didn't count.) I think it would encourage more positive community interaction. Even though I think the boards are doing very well now!

Lol, hope you all can get that in the works real soon. There should be at least a 150 quality post count before creating threads...nothin' like a Flomo or Pactard thread by somebody with 5 posts, lol. It's almost like they walk in the lion's den with meat pants on, smh.
