I think that since the new screening process has begun for joining ATS, there is now longer any need for the minimum posts before a new member can u2u!

This restriction is stopping new members from finding their way around ATS as they can not u2u someone for help!

I recently 'adopted' somebody and they could not u2u me until they had posted a certain amount of times, and during that time he was forced to just struggle his way through ATS!


Can this be fixed please???

i second this motion. no more silly restrictions. the veterans of ATS are not being threatened by ATS's popularity are they?

It sounds logical to me, I mean 20 posts isn't that high of a hurdle to surpass anyway for some troll who went through the screening process to misuse the U2U feature.

New members are able to U2U staff without restriction.

Well yes, of course...but the adopt a newbie scheme is rather redundant without being able to u2u your aboptive Veteran. Also, staff don't always respond. Sometimes, things get too busy for them or whatever and they don't reply. In which case the member in question is left with an annoyed feeling that he/she is being ignored.

The "Adopt a Newbie" concept is not an official board function, as it has been simply a movement among membership. While exceptionally admirable, there are no controls in place for something like open U2U's for new members.

There has been a movement in DISC to organize a "Welcome Wagon" effort. If this gets off the ground, new members will be able to communicate via U2U with "Welcome Wagon" membership.

The restriction will not be modified. The screening process has made a big difference, but we still get spammers... just fewer of them.

I see. I had been under the impression it was official.

Thanks for the reply.

20 posts is quite a lot for a new user to be able to send U2U to other non staff members.

20 posts can be accomplished in a matter of minutes if you choose threads that are poignant and that you have something to say.

This is a member driven content community and as stated above the 20 post rule is to get rid of spammers.
