Default Minimum Post Counts for new members

We've had to implement minimum post counts to help combat spammers.

You can quickly get your post count up by commenting on layouts in the gallery, uploading layouts to the gallery and/or introducing yourself/greeting others in the Introduce Yourself forum.

Clara's got it right. The first minimum is 3 and the only places to post to increase are listed above. 3 comments in the gallery won't take but a few minutes and you can get inspired too!

Default newb Q

1. can someone explained the scammer problem and how this requirement bypasses the problem?

2. So initially it's 3 posts but then what? does requirement move up to ten? how long is 3 post min in effect for new members?

3. do I understand correctly that uploading to gallery counts as a post?

4. I saw somewhere a count of how many posts I had made - can someone tell me where I saw that? (doink!)

1- That's because most spammers want to register and post spamming posts in the forum right away. With this little protection measure, they usually don't bother with going through the gallery and leaving comments there. It's not bulletproof (what is) but it helps. I know it from other forums.
Spamming posts are usually links to other sites, sometimes harmful so this is a protection for our forum members as well, so they don't click on dangerous sites.

2- The post requirements don't go up. How long has it been in effect I can't tell.

3- yes, uploading to the gallery counts as a "post"

4- it's in your forum user profile and you can also see it anytime you post something in the forum, top right, where is says your location. Your post count is 12. As you see, you can post on the forum so the post requirement doesn't affect you

Exactly like Romy said. Most spammers know they'll be deleted right away. So they post in the intro forum because that's the only place they can. If they were allowed to post anywhere with any number of posts it would be impossible to keep up. We are sorry it causes difficulties for new members but it's an easy way to provide some protection for our site.
