NLSC Appreciation

Postby Dee4Three on Wed Aug 30, 2017 12:52 am

Hi all,

I've been messaged by several people telling me to show my videos on Reddit and Operation Sports so people can be exposed to the capabilities of PC Modding, and just to draw people to my channel in general. However, both sites are really restrictive. Once a member on Reddit, you have to wait 3 months in order to "Promote" a channel, meaning post my youtube channel. So, the site blocked me when I tried to post the link.

Operation Sports doesn't allow you to create new threads unless you have enough time/posts on the site. The PC section has no thread for videos, and it is hardly ever used. I can't post it on the console portion of the forum, because it will be removed.

This makes me truly appreciate the NLSC and how it runs. A new user can create an account, and immediately access all areas of the forums. It's the definition of posting with freedom.

Thank you, NLSC.

The downside of our approach is that it leaves the door open for spambots to post garbage when they get past the security settings during registration, but apart from that, it seems to work fairly well for us. Good to know it works for the community and is appreciated. :)

Yeah, I think the positives outweigh the negatives.

There was a time many years ago when we had account activation set to admin only, due to some issues we were having at the time. We've also been able to fine tune our rules and whatnot, and I think we've come up with policies and arrangements that suit our community and keep things running as smoothly as possible.
