Mmm, that's not necessarily a good idea.

 

I think forumers that have posted a substantial amount of "good" content and posts could have more "abilities" than lesser "known" members.

 

At 1,000 posts you can "flag" posts.

At 2,000 posts you can "warn" users.

At 3,000 posts you can "set up a poll to lock a thread."

At 4,000 posts you can "set up a ban for a user."

At 5,000 posts you can "lock a thread."

At 10,000 posts you can "ban an user for set amount of time."


That wouldn't work either. Just look at certain posters who have 3000+ post from replying to every single thread,

 


True... Hmmm, I don't know what to do to deal with trolls...

It wouldn't be fair to someone just starting out.

Maybe If it does a trophy check so that you need a certain trophy level to prove that you are a real account then you can post. Is that any better?

No, same issue. A newcomer or someone who doesn't have tons of trophies (depending on the amount) would still be penalized by this.

Hey JD--, maybe instead of messages posted we could have community vote for responsible people, but everyone who voted needs to have a certain post count to avoid alt accounts votin themselves up.

@asraik

Most people will play their PS3 before coming to the forums, so they would probably have a few trophies.

MVP's should just have moderation powers (to some extent.) This would solve a bunch of problems, and it would be fair in deciding who would be responsible or mature enough to handle such powers. (As not to misabuse them.)

That, Plus I know about 20 games that have Trophies that are extremely easy Insta-Plats via hacking. I don't do it but I know people who do.

Yes, that would be nice. But having a lot of posts doesn't eliminate personal biases.

What if I own a PlayStation 2 but still want to be a part of the community? I'll never have enough trophies to ever post. Not everyone can afford a PlayStation 3 or Vita and some may still want to take part in the community.

Sony are responsible for the mods. Therefore, blame them and contact them for hiring more mods. I doubt this will happen, and they will ignore a request from a single powerless customer on Internet. Together as a community... maybe.

Ok I have an idea.
I like JD-- post suggestion but I had something to add to it.

You have the power until you ABUSE IT! As soon as you abuse it once the mods will remove the Pierre ad you Sikk never be able to get it again.
