I recently joined another board which has "groups." You are assinged to a group based on number of posts and length of time that you've been a member. You also have certain privileges based on these criteria. I wonder, would something like this help here at LPSG to 'control' the amount of lurkers and trolls who sometimes come out to wreak havoc? During the recent chatroom trouble, someone mentioned something along these lines (of giving less privileges to people who've not posted very much), which, along with my own experience at this other site, got me thinking about this. Would assigning us into groups, and limiting our priviliges based on these groups, be helpful here? I'm sure this feature exists here? I mean, I've certainly seen the "_____ does not belong to any public groups" box in my own, and everyone else's, profile here. BTW, the privileges that this other site gives based on these criteria are: longer editing times the higher up you go, more, and longer, access to certain 'priviliged' areas (gallery, chat, etc), less ability to start threads when you're still new, and more PM space. Although, their gallery does not contain nudity, it is simply pictures submitted by the members on the group's subject matter, or of themselves. And it is free to all members, not like here, at LPSG.
