This forum has the most restrictive posting requirements I've seen on any unofficial forum, it locks so many potential users out of posting.

Do you think it's time to ease up and let people post without having to lock a character to their profiles?

Nope.

There are reasons we do that.

What about the fact that new players can't get their characters verified due to that feature being down? Locks new people out of the largest FFXI community.

My son plays now and he has a verification going on 4 weeks now. Can't post during that time. That logic only makes sense if you actually give people an option...

I understand the issues with spam but if you're turning away posters it's kind of self defeating isn't it?

Every other forum manages it, unless there is some other reason than that?

There are so many more people that would post here if they could, but they can't. I've played ffxi for years and only recently managed to post here because of how annoying it is made.

It is also a little goofy that people can post from characters that no longer exist from servers that no longer exist.

They do have their reasons. But they've also fought so hard to swat a few flies that they've broken good furniture in the process. There's a happy medium in there somewhere.

Out of curiosity, is the ffxiv section just as rigorous with requirements to post there or is it free to anyone with a valid email address?

And we have no response on that one yet lol, forums have been down for a while, the only person that responds to anything can't get ahold of the ones that run it,

So how much are you going to charge your son for content clears?

If under 18, finish all homework assignments and get good grades, wash the dishes after dinner, keep his room clean, do his own laundry, mow the lawn/shovel the driveway when applicable. Bonus points if Mom gives him a positive review when I get home from work.

If over 18, rent.

I worry it's being done purely for an easy life for the mods, which is the death of forums when most of the core users have left.

It's been in place since 2007 or 2008 maybe? It was meant to stop spam bots and slow banned users from simply circumventing a ban with a new account.

I'm not sure if idiot boy knows verification is broken but he will soon.

Only verifieds should be allowed to post, clearly you weren't around when the site was spammed to ***by temp accounts. We had a few days of scat porn, longcats, gay porn and im fairly sure someone even dropped a child porn picture.

It was not a good time.

So I guess the real answer is that the people who run and own the site have more or less lost interest in it and just keep it running to be nice to the remaining long-term users.

Fair enough.

The site is run just like FFXI minimum effort minimum results. The entire site is run like this:

I loved that thing, man. As you can tell.

If they really wanted the site to be better they would put me in charge...but I'd probably turn it into a fan dedication to Simpsons season 1-10...which might make it better actually.
