The number of posts requirement should be reduced to 30. It would cut down on a lot of spam participation and I don't believe new participating members will survive 50 posts about the same sh8t being regurgitated around here over and over throughout the years.
30 posts is very reasonable.
We had the problem of users spamming their post count up to market from day one ever since we introduced the post count limit, I've stopped counting those "What's Your Favorite KoF?" threads.... if anything, it gives us mods more work because there will be new members whose spamming will have to be limited. This is where the wheat gets separated from the chaff, so to speak.
Back then ng.com was more active so it gave us lots of work but now it's easy to pinpoint spammers and deal with them. 50 posts may seem a lot but the idea is to tell people that active contribution is what we're after, not easy market access.
By the way, back then Rot set the number to 200, now THAT was excessive.
Whether or not 50 are too much or just right will be determined during the trial period, if 50 turned out to be to much we could always lower the amount to 30.
