    What classes as new?

    Number of gems? - but this is hardly accurate

    Date joined? - they may just have been inactive for a long time

    Amount of followers? - high numbers could be due to polite people following back automatically

    My threads are not silly, and my rep count is healthy, and this tpic is not about me as I am not a new member.

    Well I haven't seen it yet, thing is it isn't mostly the new users that make "silly threads" it is some active users who have been on here for years/many months and if you don't like it, just leave the forum then.

    Then don't complain then, if you don't like it then you can leave because whether you like it or not, people will still post things in Chat that is not to your liking regardless of what you say and there is a reason it is called "Chat."

    Do you mean prohibited? Your statement makes no sense this way.

    We should welcome new members. stopping them post anywhere wouldn't be a nice thing to do. Chat is chat anyway...

    Okay so, as Rhythmical pointed out you meant to say "prohibited," not "not prohibited." Also, I don't think you understand the concept of objectivity vs subjectivity.

    1) Ideal for who?
    2) Silly in who's opinion?
    3) Who would determine what counted as "proof?"
    4) Positive and genuine according to who?

    There's no way of objectively answering these questions as everyone will have a different opinion on the matter. Since there's no objective way of answering them these questions don't actually have definite answers, so basing any policies off of them is a fallacious way of doing things. Then there's the fact that not all new members are idiots so it's illogical to punish the whole lot of them, especially when the crime hasn't actually been done yet. It's like a police officer arresting someone because at some point in the future they might rob someone.

    Yea erm... threads such as these tend not to be celebrated. It's based on an idea which is totally unrealistic and pretty stupid really, in my humble opinion. Of course, you didn't think it was stupid since you're the one who posted it. It demonstrates my point brilliantly.
