I'm relatively new here and am enjoying the knowledge of the Epicski community! Here's something worth considering.
It seems a substantial portion of new threads (especially in the General and Resorts forums) that are created are by newbies with very little or zero experience in the winter sports world. I'm sure you've seen the threads, "Where to Stay in SLC?", "What's the Best Resort in the West?", "Plan my First Ski Trip", "What type of ski should I buy?", "Whats the best X-mas resort (that's cheap, covered in snow, uncrowded, but close to an airport )?" . These are some pretty basic questions that are very easily answered by the search function or that little Google bar in your web browser.
I would consider starting a minimum post requirement before creating a new thread (I'd say 25?). This way, the forum because less of a answer board for the clueless, and more of a forum for in depth winter sports conversation.
