Poll: Rules Required?
Yes, because without order there is chaos.
No, I like to color outside the lines because I'm crazy.

RE: Rules Requirement
All the stuff mentioned above is possible with the forum except the terms and conditions page will need extra work since it's not built into the account creation process. Let me know which way you want to go.

I could start users in a group that only allows posting in the introduction forum. The promotions system could automatically promote them after the first post and allow access to the rest of the forum.

If they had made one post then whenever they clicked the post button again it flashed up with 'Sorry your first post is still awaiting forum approval, you will not be able to post until approval has been granted' or something like that, it saves Stark from having to go through and delete any duplicate posts.

Deep, is this possible too?

For the moment I agree with everything Zatamon agrees on.
I'll regret later but don’t have the time to think about that for now. Smile

RE: Rules Requirement
The issues about moderating are tough. I hate to say it, but I just can't get on board with creating rules to keep people comfortable. When it comes to topics, conversation, and how things are said, I just refuse to go there. It would greatly diminish the freedom that just about everyone loves. With freedom to say whatever you like comes the compromise of others doing the same.

No No, be my guest...
I kinda like it...

Don't touch that stinking pile in the back though. That's my unhappy thoughts fermenting...
