I may be the only person who is slightly bothered by forum posts with ALL CAPS TITLES. If not, it would be nice to have all post title inputs converted to title case when submitted (instead of uppercase). This would be a pretty straightforward coding exercise. Ryan Nevius

I'm getting tired of people that have been climbing less than 3 years posting stupid questions. What can we do about this? Altered Ego

Probably have the mods move the questions to the Beginner Forum. Also, 3 years is a pretty arbitrary number.

I'm pretty sure there's a strong negative correlation between the number of caps used in a post title and the relative importance of a post's content.

I wanted to say 5 but that seemed a bit much. I think if you were to draw a bell curve of all the lame shit like "what camalots should I buy?" somewhere around 80% is in the 3 or less category. I suggest not letting anyone post for a least a year after they join. Altered Ego
