    We've modified the USMB policy for "new member" access to the Flame Zone. Here on out -- a minimum of 100 posts for new members is required to post or "thank" posts in the FZ.

    Obviously, this measure is to discourage chronic "breaking and entering" by formerly banned members and should not present any real impediment to legitimate new USMB members. We reserve the right to INCREASE this minimum post requirement as required.

    Questions should be addressed to USMB Moderation Staff via PM..

    So what happens if a new member starts a thread that gets moved to the Flamezone? Do they lose the ability to post in their own thread? That might be a way the people might try to slip by the new rule.

    My guess would be they DO lose posting privileges.. We rarely move threads to the FZ. Unless they are funny enough.. :badgrin:
