    Except that they can be allowed to open a thread in the introduction section.

    Everyone here has grown to learn from the start being a new member, you(expertos) all have gotten close to the new members due to them opening their ownership thread and sharing their booking experience. By not letting them open threads until their 1st 50 - 100 threads, its like discouraging them.

    Instead help them get to know about searching the threads etc and going through threads.

    Mention when they register to go through the site thoroughly and enable/accept their membership after 2 - 3 days. This should give them time to get familiarized with the site.

    Could consider putting restrictions at sub-forum level rather than at the global level. For example, any new member should be able to open an post an introduction thread or an ownership thread. Limitations can be put in technical sections etc. I have no clue how feasible is this. Just a suggestion.

    Mods just a humble request.

    Now we have Classic Fiat section in forum. Please add the ownership sections for the classic fiats.

    Rishi, there will not be sub-sections in Classic Fiat section.
    All ownership and technical threads should be created in same section.

    We don’t intend to make this section as detailed as new Fiats, for various reasons which were discussed earlier.

    Well, I am against putting any kind of restriction on new members. The member might be new here but he maybe a knowledge bank. The number of posts and likes is not a testament of one's knowledge.

    If you're tired of seeing newbies starting new threads without checking out the existing ones, you have the option of clicking on "Report Post". Doing this will bring the post to Mods' attention and the needful will be done.

    Off late, everyday the forum goes down / returns timeout error around 1:00 PM IST. I guess there might be some scheduled activity, like a back up, happening during that time. Can we consider changing the schedule to sometime late in the night, say 1:00 AM?
