    How about this?

    A new member CAN use the help forum immediately. However, they CANNOT use the rest of the forum until they have completed 20 rated games AND have been a member for one month.

    Should we have a vote on this?

    RHP is not a democracy. It's a Russtopia.

    Sure it is, but Russ tends to respond when a lobby group appears and the idea is reasonable.

    To hinder spammers and multi-account abusers of the forums, a minimum of 10 moves is now required before you can create a new thread or post to the forums.

    The exception is the help forum, which remains open to anyone. Also, in the rare occurrence that someone becomes a subscriber within 10 moves, they too can post freely.
    Well done.

    I've made zero moves this month.
    My point is that when you come to RHP it is to play chess.
    The forums are an added bonus that you gradually get into.

    Anyone who wants to post straight away is, in my opinion,
    almost certainly someone using a second account.
    Or there is also a chance they have been here before under another name.

    Some know too much of what has happened in the past to be new members.

    Doesn't have to be a second account old one could be gone and they could be starting new one.

    Perhaps Russ secret tweak will work, lets see what happens.
