There have been a rash of newbies posting useless comments just to up the count. I would like to make you aware that reaching the 5 post count so you can post links is a privilege, not a right. You may upload images from the second you join if desired. Padding posts will most likely get you banned at post 4 if your comments are useless.

Also please note rule 15 here:

This is also the case with the trading post when someone joins and makes a 100 post in less than a day and on number 101 posts a for sale in the trading post, spam is spam and is dealt with accordingly.

I've deleted the posts as spam, and given the user 24hrs on the naughty step, and advised that you can post images without spamming to 50 posts.

unfortunately many, and I mean MANY, don't read or notice you can attach, and take the spam route.
two posts a thread in many cases is taking it too far for me

And the rest, want to throw up a load of links etc, and they won't get very far either. Not with our mods on the case. :grin:

The real problem arises when all the Mods are busy chasing, instead of watching valid posts. We now return you to your regularly scheduled browsing.

Many forums I frequent have most areas/features locked for a period of time (unless you become a 'paid up member') especially for sale areas and links.

I paid to become a premium because all the help and advise on here is totally worth it. Even though I almost hit 100 posts before I paid.

Is it true that I can post pictures immediately? I use photobucket, and copy the image code (or something similar) but the 'you cannot post links' messages comes up, is it due to the way I try to post pictures?

Also, why can't I access my own profile? Is it the paid member thing? (What I wanted to do is make a gallery, or is that not possible for me?)

No, have a look in the link in my siggy... you can upload images immediately - there's also a big button at the top of the forum that shows you "how to post images".
