We have very few newbies coming in, and I doubt changing the signup in that way will reduce the numbers. In fact, I suspect it might have the opposite effect. Also, spam is a massive pain in the ass.

Just three regularly engaged users can have a significant impact on this place. Signaling from the outset that Hubski is clearly more interested in users than growth might be beneficial.

I can definitely tweak the rate at which a hubwheel is earned.

mk, c_hawkthorne mentioned to me in passing that the chat function isn’t visible when logged out. I recall older lurkers not being logged in when lurking. Is this a possible change that can occur?

Earning a hubwheel seems like a moot point if users are admitted based on writing something to begin with.

Still works as a threshold for some functionality including adding new users.
