I think a mix would be good but only because it shows that you have participated in the process and you understand how splits work, I guess to a lesser degree that you are trustworthy but if you have 500 posts etc and are going to this hassle im inclined to give you the benefit of the doubt anyway. If you really want to add an additional layer of protection then enforce splitters to sign up for basenotes vip as that way you know theres financial record of payment back to them so its not completely anonymous as someone with 500 posts or feedback could be.
I am sure stuigi can answer better than me, but I am reading his question this way . . .
The current standard for starting a split is a member in good standing (no negative feedback) with a minimum post count of 500. This person may have only a couple of positive feedback scores, but has reached the 500 post threshold, so under current policies, they may start a split.
What I think is being asked, for a member with 50+ positives, but has not reached the 500 post minimum under split policies to start a split
. Should this person be allowed to start a split.
Stugi, if I am wrong in my assumption, please correct.
