Discourse: New User restrictions

Hey Spark team,

I really love the discourse forums here. Nevertheless, “they get in my way” and I think that’s sad.

  1. I had a great conversation in https://community.spark.io/t/what-exactly-is-3-3v-filtered-output/2319 - sadly, I cannot respond in this thread anymore, because “new users are temporarily limited to 3 replies in the same topic.”? Why? :frowning:
  2. I wanted to share a spark core project I’m working on, so I wrote a longer write-up and took several pictures for that. Sadly, “new users can’t put images in posts.”. :frowning:

I see that certain limits are important to prevent spam. But I feel they get more into the way of regular users rather than helping with anything. :confused:


Edit: Ironically, my “trust level” got raised by this post. These issues are fixed for me now, but I’m sure you could still impove here.

Max - thanks for the feedback, fully agreed. This has been bothering me for a little while but this post gave me the motivation to do something about it :slight_smile: I boosted the number of posts a new user can do, and added picture/attachment/link capabilities for new users too. Hopefully this will work a little better!


Awesome. Thanks! :smiley:
