Has there ever been consideration given to the way how and when questions can be posted by newly registered users?
I noticed that of late tons of unqualified, unrelated, and oftentimes way too trivial questions are being asked and that often by those who are unrelated to the financial services industry.
An idea came to mind to potentially require newly registered users to first answer a question or two with at least one up-vote or more before questions can be asked. Sure, this may keep a qualified user from getting his burning questions answered on the same day but I feel that could potentially be a reasonable price to pay to avoid all that "noise" that crosses the tape recently, stuff that needs to be closed, migrated,...
Another alternative would be to change the FAQ to a quick quiz type of way, newly registered users have to answer 5-10 questions before they can fire away. The questions will heavily focus on bringing home the point that this forum is targeting those working in the industry or academicians that are clearly qualified to post and add value. I would potentially be willing to help formulate the questions if there is interest in such format.
I just find the many questions that clearly violate the FAQ extremely annoying.
