I'm an active moderator/administrator of a 1.000+ member retro/nextgen gaming forum.
The community is very active with a lot of active, creative members. Recently we activated the main website that has reviews, trailers, editorials, etc... With the new website came a wave of new (young) members, and with them came some new problems.
We don't have a fixed avatar/signature policies. Max avatar dimensions are 300x300px, and signature images have a limit of 800x200px 400kb limit.
New members I mentioned seem to abuse this policy, often setting X rated avatars, flashing gifs, etc... And the same thing usually goes for signatures.
How do you handle a problem like this?
Should I lower the "standards" - i.e. 200x200px max avatar you cannot use an image that displays the following: ......... Or is it a better idea to selectively enable features based on registration date / post count?
