From now on, only members who belong to the group "Member" or higher can access subforums with lossless material.
All new registrants will automatically be categorized under "New Member" and promoted to "Member" when they reach 5 posts. Bear in mind, that every promotion will be checked and people writing 5 pointless posts just to access the hidden sections will be punished, and their newly-acquired access to lossless forums will be revoked.
Ps; We would like to hear your opinions on this decision.
we really didnt want to do this but in order to make sure we have people who really want to be a part of the forums we had to. there are so many people who just sign up and download and never post anything(also known as leechers). :nirvana:
Incesticide89 just said it all.
We can't and we won't force you to upload stuff (although uploading new material and/or mirroring already existing would always be nice) if you can't or don't have anything to upload. However, we do want this to be a forum with members actually participating in discussions and starting new ones. If we would like withthelightsout.co.cc to be a linklist, we would maintain a single file with links.
In addition, posts made in the Junkyard forum now won't count towards the user's postcount.
