I'm just a noob here, but I've been an active member on other vbulletin forums. The one thing that I noticed that made the place a better environment was making the "create a thread" option a priveledge and not a right. In order to actually create a thread on my other forum you had to have ~15 "useful" posts. This caused new members to learn to use the search fuction for common questions, and it detered spammers from making accounts to start malicious threads. This still wasn't an end-all-be-all fix, but it was a deterent, sort of like locking your board up with one of those flimsy dakine retractables.

I agree with Carm / Tim. Time for a mod change up for more active members. Wolf / Kill are the only active mods.

I like hexon's idea as well.

I as well think this is a fine idea and am quite happy to hear that Snowolf will be bringing it up to the higher up who can do something about it.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

I think that by "useful" they just mean non spam, or something relevant in a thread that is established already. I could be wrong though.

Another idea is to not have the ability to post links until you've posted 15 times or so.

There really isn't a way to determine what a "useful" post is. It just sort of went by the honor system. There were a few sub-forums that didn't increase post count (introduction thread, games thread, etc), so obviously you couldn't increase your post count in those places. And generally, people could tell if a member was just posting to increase their count (things like saying "hi" in the middle of a thread) and these things could be reported for breaking the forum rules.
