I always told myself id never post in suggestions but w/e.
Basically, link forums account to an in-game account or character. Until that character or account reaches x (lets say 100) hours, that player can only post in the "new player" portion of the forum. Basically like how there is a 10 post requirement for the suggestion box, but hopefully this might actually work.
It doesnt necessarily need its own sub-forums, or at least not as many as we already have for the "regular" forum. Just something so that there aren't people who are 3 gyms in spamming posts about "gib megas", "how do i delete a character", "special steelix/how to use butterfree", etc.
I dont know if the servers could actually handle it, but I feel this would really help clean up the forum and ease the work load on staff members.
TL;DR How to cut down on shitposts
I cant format to save my life sorry ily
