Some great suggestions. I wonder how hard it would be to implement?

If the username that registered, has 1 item purchased, or 1 item uploaded, then that user can post on the forums, else… mute / forums ONLY available for reading! Or as timmcmorris said, new users with no purchases or items uploaded should have a captcha system if they wish to post on the forums!

That can be yet another barrier for new authors. Don’t we have a captcha on our first login after registration is complete? I can’t really remember.


If the username that registered, has 1 item purchased, or The forums will no longer a haven for freelancers that just create an account and get customers with no implication in this community whatsoever!

As a moderator, what forum rule do you think they are breaking? And how are people who pick up on a missing link (themes-> ... -> modified and working websites) labeled as useless to the community? Many authors, including me (not always though), aren’t keen on doing modifications and I think the occasional freelancers help fill a blank.

Thanks for reading,
Boris

I think having freelancers responding to customization requests is great, and a necessary part of the Envato ecosystem. Example of a positive freelancer interaction:

Customer: I need to add a new slider to the theme I purchased. Can anyone help me out?

Freelancer: I can help you! Please contact me here [email] to discuss your project requirements and rates.

What isn’t great are the freelancers who push for custom work when the customer is clearly just asking for a theme recommendation. Example of a negative freelancer interaction:

Customer: I’m looking for a great photography theme. What can you recommend?

Freelancer 1: Contact me for custom theme!

Freelancer 2: I can build this for you! I’ll be waiting for your email

[5 days pass, thread is revived]

Freelancer 3 I can do this. Please contact me. Waiting to hear from you.

In this case, I consider this behavior spammy, and sometimes pushy and borderline rude – it’s unwanted solicitation. In a way, this is like offering a competing product, if you want to look at it that way as well. Freelance as augmentation is good; freelance as an alternative doesn’t seem to fit in here particularly.

Just my own thoughts on the matter, though. :)

That was a suggestion, as the title goes, what I hate, is spam. We all hate seeing ” Buy this new third leg enlargement pills! THEY ARE AWESOME ! Then go get those smucci shoes and that dolce and banana purse ” :)

I can’t see it being that hard to implement, all that’s needed is a simple check on the user table to see if purchase history >=1

if var == 0
  # show captcha
end

If spam is so pressing, i think a CAPTCHA system for users that have not bought items is a great idea.

Approved :)

I most certainly agree, thanks for clearing out this idea. :)

Hey, guys! Anybody wants some cheap pills? :D:P

Joking aside, I like the idea. Not that I’ve encountered so much spam on AudioJungle forums, but still spammers exist and should be handled ;)
