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.

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.

A post that doesn't get reported should be good enough.

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.
