A consequence of the new automated, activity-based acceptance system is an influx of forum members who are clearly too young or confused to constructively participate in the forum.
Every week or so, a new member appears that posts several low-quality threads, mis-uses categories, and doesn’t seem to understand basic forum principles, despite feedback from other users. Unfortunately, due to DevRel’s hesitancy to remove anyone from the forums (presumably to not appear unfair), the task of cleaning up after the user is left up to the LTC’s for days or even weeks on end.
To rectify this, I’d like to propose that if a newly added member makes multiple bad threads (poor structure, bad/confusing ideas, spam, etc.) and clearly isn’t old enough to use the forums, they get removed to let them age up before returning. There’s a fine line between an adjustment period where a user learns the ins and outs of the forums and someone who downright doesn’t understand what’s gong on, and it keeps being crossed with very little being done about it.
This is addressed in particular to @DevEngagementTeam.
