Why is there a 30 day Waiting Period to post on The General NBA Discussion Forum?

In the summer of 2012, we decided to make some reforms to our General NBA Forum to improve the discussion on the forum.

Unlike some of our other large forums, The General NBA Discussion Forum has posters that are fans of all 30 NBA Teams, as well as many individual players. There is far more debate and a lot of violations are committed because of that debate amongst fan bases and a lot of users who simply want to stir up trouble.

In addition, many users were getting a ton of violations for our General NBA Discussion Forum while receiving none in any other forum and ones who were banned were coming back with new accounts picking right up where they left off.

We decided that a 30-day waiting period would help new users adjust to the forum and dramatically cut back on recently-banned users coming back and derailing user discussion.

While inconvient to some, this policy has helped us dramatically improve discussion on our General NBA Forum and led to less users being banned simply for offenses committed on the General NBA Discussion Forum.

Could you make an exception and let a new user post before the 100 day waiting period?

We prefer that all new users adjust to our forums before posting on our General NBA Forum.

There are no exceptions.
