it is generally a decent community but a few people make 1000s of accounts just to s***post and one guy has had several accounts suspended just tonight but has countless more alts at the ready. i am sure this has been proposed in the past at some point but idk what the downside would be to raising the user level

It's not really going to change anything. The person I feel you're talking about is probably capable of simply hiding alts long enough to get Karma to surpass the level and then do whatever, using scripts to auto-log-in in the meantime.

At best you'll just stop him from however long it'll take to get a few accounts up that high.

The only meaningful increments would be a number of years' worth of Karma, and that I feel is against the "spirit" of CE as it'd possibly restrict a good chunk of the responsible users.

Don't misunderstand, I want a solution to the problem as well. I just don't think this is how to go about it.
See me on Discord! ^.^

you are probably right, though it did seem to help on 261 (politics board) to an extent. how much of a weirdo does someone have to be to have 1000's of accounts banned and keep coming back?

I don't go to CE much, because of all the trolling and nonsense. It's worth a shot tho.
I'll sign.

Wouldn't accomplish anything. It's like when people suggested raising the user level for the Politics board when it ended up doing f*** all about the cancerous populace there.

There's always going to be some things that can't be solved with a level limit.

it actually did help the politics board some. there are some posters that are career trolls there with higher user levels but it kept madfoot and the like from posting every day when his account was inevitably banned

At the very least, this discourages new people from doing this and restricts it to the "legacy" trolls.
