Now, there a couple of ways this could be gone about being done. In my opinion, the most practical solution would be to disallow any new members, say 6 month old accounts and under, from posting in the box, and for the posters who are granted the ability to post in pandora's box, I would reccomend that any rule violation within the box result in a temporary suspension of box posting privleges, the length of which depending on the severity of the violation and whether or not it is a repeat offense. The new posters would have to first pass a sort of probationary period in which any rule violation would add time to their prohibition from posting in pandora's. I believe this would be a very effective means of eliminating a majority of rule violating threads/posts. As someone who has lurked the box nearly daily for the past two years, I can tell you that almost everytime I see one of those infamous "how much (insert drug here) do I need to take to feel fucked up" threads, the OP is almost ALWAYS a new poster who is simply not yet familiar with the rules. This is an internet forum, the rules are not going to be respected by those who have not yet developed an appreciation for how great this place really is. The 6th month period will allow posters to develop that sense of appreciation before they get the privlege to post about other drugs in the box, and once they finally earn that privlege they are not going to be so willing to throw it away with a rule violation. I truly believe that these changes would be effective in creating the rule abiding enviornment in pandora's that the mods have been trying to create all along. The box was an integral part of this community, and the city is just not the same without it. As I read another poster say earlier, taking away the box takes the counter out of counter-culture community. Please, everyone feel free to add to, alter, or criticise this idea.
