That's a pretty reasonable idea, I like it.

Maybe we could do your idea like this: limit subreddit creation to once a week, with a 2-week delay on new accounts before they can create their first subreddit. That way it'd be easy to keep tabs on everything as it grows. I think your idea of users having a trial period with limited sub creation abilities is good.

I agree with Jesus on the sub-10 limit. Pretty sure you don't want to end up with guys modding 171 subs.

The once per week limit, with the initial delay, seems like a reasonable way to combat drive-by shilling too. And/or just to give the miscreants time to identify themselves. If they can hold it in for two weeks, maybe that's how they normally are.

Yeah exactly, the slower things roll out, the more obvious each of their bad moves will become. It easier to build a pattern over time and easy to avoid an 1-day dedicated attack. I think we'll do this.

10-limit sub creation possibly, or no subs for six to tten days for a new user followed by being able to create one or two for around a month and then doing the time limit with a possible limit in the number of subs.

So, in total...

0 subs for 6-10 days

1-2 subs for 1 month to 2 months

10 subs after the 1 to 2 month period with a time limit inbetween each created sub.

(excluding the owner of the site of course.

Sounds very reasonable, and in line with the goal of having moderators active on the subs they control or assist with.

That sounds great but will the number of subs created by unlimited? I feel there should be a maximum amount.

[–]magnora7[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

Perhaps we could set a max overall cap of 10 or something.

Yes, that would be perfect, and would be much easier to tell who is moderating what.
