Important Question

    I know this isnt the right section but i figured most people come to HW, so the question is should white belts be able to make threads or should they have to reach a particular post count like with having a av? The reason i ask is because 95% of white belts threads are little more than trolls or dont now what their talking about and it seems to be on the rise now that fedor got beat. Wouldnt sherdog be better if white belts couldnt make threads in all honesty?

    Either post count or join date. There are people that are white belts that joined a few years ago. They should have the right to make threads

    There needs to be a waiting period for whitebelts before they can create threads imo. Just to stop people from making troll accounts for the purpose of making troll threads.

    10-15 days before the ability to create a thread doesn't sound too bad to me.

    Agree with this. And if they went around just post whoring then it is likely they could see the ban or dubs anyways.

    I think if someone is really willing to post 250 times or whatever just to make a troll thread, they've earned it haha. Most people wouldn't take the time

    It's a good idea, but some of the biggest trolls have 1000+ posts. (Not me :p)

    I doubt Sherdog will put a mandatory number of posts before allowing the priveledge of creating a thread. For Sherdog as a growing website, it simply doesn't make sense. It will discourage new people from coming to Sherdog, meaning less ad revenue and less exposure, which will only further MMA ignorance.
    That said, I've seen some truly exceptional threads from white belts, and equally horrific troll jobs from black belts.
