Have a look in the comment section of this: http://www.planetminecraft.com/mod/1102-minecraft-utilities-api/

What you may have noticed is that there is a spammer who is advertising some job thing or whatever. He is only level 1. So my proposal is to stop new member from commenting on things until they have posted a few things or reached a certain level. That will ensure that spam and advertising would be decreased and PMC would once again be a great place to visit.

"And what about be able to comment only if you are lvl 3 or if the user have uploaded at least 1 project?"

"I was thinking it should be project based. Since PMC is about making and sharing cool content, they should make a certain amount of submissions to unlock commenting."

Was Midnight means is that despite what most people think, PMC is not all about levels and uploading. A ton of the userbase uses the site without uploading a single thing and you just can't exclude those people from commenting because a handful of others are messing it up. Levels are not a good enough measurement. It's a classic example: Everyone posting those scam advertisement messages is at level 1, but far from everyone at level 1 posts advertisement messages. We have site moderators at level 1 who have no uploads, it would be a bit silly if they were not allowed to comment right :P?

Good idea on paper but in the long run its a bad idea. There are a lot of old members and even mods who are level one. Adding a report button to comments would server a better purpose.

As of right now if you see comment spammers you can either contact a mod via chat, PM a mod directly, or create a ticket.
