Provisional members

After a brief discussion with the moderators, we’ve decided to create a membership category for provisional members. Provisional members will have fewer permissions than even One Diamond members, and their posts will need to be approved by the moderators before becoming visible to others in order to prevent too many repeated questions or low-quality posts. The category is intended to provide a way for student pilots and others who have an interest in Diamond aircraft to access the forums in a more convenient manner than anonymous mode.

At the discretion of the moderators, a provisional member may be promoted to a One Diamond member based on the quality of their posts, at which point they can participate in forum discussions as full members without moderator intervention.

Depending on how much moderator workload this creates, we may decide it isn’t worthwhile and discontinue it, but I’m hopeful that it will give more people a way to participate without dramatically affecting the quality and signal-to-noise ratio of the forum.
