I think that for sections where releases are made, entire threads should need to be approved instead of attachments. A virus was just posted in the MS section with a fake virus scan and an outside link spaced out like "media fire" -- some of our members could have been added to some faggot's iStealer.txt -- for sections that aren't for downloads we can just stick to the normal attachment pending approval thing.

Already suggested this before but never got an answer. There are some sections that have this but I think all release sections w/ minions should have it. Minions would just check the thread format and the file and decide whether to approve the thread or not. Other people won't see the thread until minion approves it.
not just that. It means more work for the minions. i'm not saying the illiterate people, I'm saying the leechers.
Only the less literate ones are going to download and run a random .exe -- it doesn't matter about their activity on the site. And, it wouldn't really be more work for the minions -- most releases are downloads, so instead of approving an attachment they'll just approve the entire thread before anyone can see it.
I some what support the idea I only feel it could be necessary for bigger sections and for hack release area's because thats the first place advertisers make their threads plus if we need to approve the attachment anyways whats approving the thread going to hurt us with; its not like we would be approving every single thread being made in the whole sub forum.
