I did some calculations and I found out that in august, This acc was created. So August 15 - September 1 is 17 days. Then, September to October is 31 days. October to November is 32 days. 32+31+17 = 80 days. 3 months is equal to 80 days, which means instead of 14 more days, it's only 10 more days, which is the 11th of November!
!@#$%^*** I'm...gonna...die....waiting!!! can I make the thread now? considering I won't be too far away in the next 14 days or something, I'm completely sure I will still be on unless I die or something o.o
Guess you're right! But 2 months is adequate too, from a non mod point of view. I have been planning for the past 2 months, even before I created this acc! What do you think bout two months? I understand that you cannot just change the rule randomly but please consider...
Yup, gira and I enforce the three month rule as much as possible there. Its in place largely to prevent 'spammy' team threads from being accepted. When we didn't have the three month rule there were thousands of cases where people would join and rely on others to do the most basic things through team threads without even trying to hack for themselves. While there was nothing 'technically' wrong with them as they met all of the other requirements and there's no rule against what they were doing, nobody would ever join them and they just clogged up the forums becoming an eyesore. Plus, if you've been around the forums for more than three months then you're not likely to drop your projects in a week which was the norm.
Trust me, the benefits of it outweigh the negatives ;P
Unfortunately it just isn't substantial enough to be accepted - Just selecting an option from an options menu doesn't really necessitate a full thread dedicated to it. I'm not sure what you could do to get it to the point where it is acceptable since it is relatively simple and doesn't lend itself to much explanation.
