Suggestion BST Thread Limit

Discussion in 'Support & Feedback' started by CMNS, Feb 22, 2013.

    I think it's annoying to see a single user create so many thread at once in the BST, it's not fair for other users as their thread got pushed quickly from the front page and don't get decent exposure as it should.

    So what about setting up a limit? Basically a user can only have X number of active threads running simultaneously, once the limit reached s/he has to close their other thread in order to start a new one.

    Or, any other ideas?

    If you see any duplicate threads, just use the Report option.

    people do so because they need different type of service in same project.. so they need to describe both in different threads and about limits DP had already set limit for Bumping thread so people can only create new thread like this from next time they need to bump and even premium member can't bump next thread within 7 Days. You can check yourself you had created 2 thread on Same day (may be simultaneously also)

    If DP had set the limit so you could never do so. :p


    just imagine how many Duplicated threads you will get at that time :confused: or report your own thread get an infraction and delete your thread. (Admin and Mod never become free from deleting old threads)


    Yes there should be a limit needed in all forum not only BST :
    "People cannot create next thread until 5 to 10 mins after creating last thread"
    It will be helpful to reduce spam. sometimes spammers just come in forum register and starts creating threads simultaneously.

    I'm not talking about duplicate threads, you can check Domains section now on the BST to see what I meant. A single user selling almost 20 domains, 1 thread per domain...

    Really? So it's fine if I create 200-ish threads for each of my domain?

    Answer is yes if you have 200 domains for sell because you must verify ownership of the domain in order to post this listing.

    Not a whole lot... we have a ton of systems in place that usually prevents spam before it ever gets posted.
