Waiting Period Before Being Able To Post In Spam.
Honestly, I don't think it's a good idea for brand new members to be able to immediately head straight to spam. Two reasons.
1. They [should have] joined this site for the Roleplaying and should use the time they spend on here trying to get to know the site and the roleplaying scene.
2. When they're a real newbie and they act obnoxious and ditsy they cause an annoyance in Spam Members, which can occasionally lead to Spammers doing...bad things.
I'm not justifying when a newbie gets flamed at all. I'm just trying to say that we can sort of prevent this by putting a post#-minimum to post in Spam. I think they should be allowed in the other Off-Topic forums, because those have legit discussions/whatnot and can be very helpful for a newly socializing RPG Member, but I think we can all agree that Spam isn't really somewhere that a brand-new member should be venturing.
EDIT: I also meant to say that I think they should be allowed to see it, just not interact, so they can see what it's like and understand how to go in there and not be a complete idiot.
