That's the whole point of putting

*Reported*

in a post. I think the problem is that people assume that when a post is reported, a mod will magically pop out of nowhere to deal with it.

This is made more confusing by the fact that many people don't seem to realize that regular mods (green) only have moderating powers in their assigned forums. It becomes more confusing due to the fact that they can still ban users, so someone will ban the offensive user, but the thread remains open, leading to much confusion.

So if there are no Pit mods (or S Mods/Admins) around, and the thread doesn't get closed within 2 seconds of being reported, people feel the need to report the same post again, despite the fact that someone has cleared posted

*Reported*

in that thread referring to the offensive post already.

Well, you usually pick up ad & spam posts on the first entry. So,why not hold off on allowing new users to post pictures for ten posts. Other forums ask users to wait a few posts before links can be inserted, and what is an offensive image, if not a link?

It wouldn't really inconvenience a new user to any great degree, denying links of images, (or image uploads), for a short while.

If a member joined just to get an opinion on a guitar or other piece of equipment, he or she will just have to be patient, kick back, and shoot the shit for a couple of posts..

(Yeah, I know the old cliche, "shoot the shit", was an awful pun in a thread about scat porn. So what, )?

It bloody well can. I think it's one of the most annoying features I've found on forums, and puts me completely off using them.

Think of it this way: a new member registers to ask a question about information on some old beat up guitar they found in the attic. He wants to post a picture to identify the guitar and determine if it's worth fixing up, but finds he can't for ten posts. There are two things that could likely happen.

A) The user says "screw this" and goes to ask the question at not-so-ultimate-guitar.com and from that time on uses that other forum instead of this one.

B) The user posts 10 quick spam posts. This could result in a warning or disapproval of forum regulars, which could put the new user at odds with the community from the get go. Plus the spam posts would just mess up the forums.

And like I've pointed out in this thread already, the guy that's been making the majority of the offensive posts has been doing this for months, just making new accounts under different IP addresses. What's to stop that guy from just making 10 quick spam posts and then posting whatever disgusting thing he wants?

Again, that solution is more of an inconvenience for people that want to actually use the site than a deterrent for trouble makers. As my psychiatrist used to say, the side effects shouldn't hurt you more than the cure helps you, and if that is the case, that's clearly not a good solution.
