    The 20 Post Rule!

    Having a 20 post rule will always invite people writing SPAM in every conceivable place they are allowed to on this forum, and mods admins will always be deleting posts!

    Advertising there is a 20 post rule or a 10 rule to get a font etc... only invites all this SPAM. The only reason this forum is being found at all is mainly for Fonts!! My advice would be to not advertise you need so many posts for different sections, Why tell people there are different sections in the first place?, why not make it a surprise? if you tell people there is a posting rule this forum will always be filled we utter SPAM posts, just my opinion. That being said I'm off to post some fonts lol....

    ...and this is your first post! Just take a deep breath, post where you like, and enjoy the forum. (I'm a new member too, and I understand the need for the rule.)

    I understand the need for the rule, I just don't understand the need to tell any of it and Invite SPAM!

    It's not quite Spam, it's just garbage. I agree to the 20 or 25 limit, but that would work better if that person had something good to say. Some people just come here for the resources. Not much talking involved.

    Well it's not spam per-se, but there are a lot of posts without real content. Stll, those new members increase the member number, making this site more popular, which is fine for me.

    My opinion that always tends to depend on the user's intentions, do not do SPAM and will always be somewhat unlikely and uncontrollable part of administrators
    then, is this SPAM too? ..how knows.

    Cheers.

    Rather than complaining about the rule, if we all try to make our first 10(20, 30, whatever) posts be meaningful content, and then follow that for the rest of our posts, then we're contributing to the solution, and minimizing the problem. Just my cents.

    Well this is the main problem... I also recently tried to answer something useful to some needing help, but couldn't post because my post count didn't meat forum's rules. Helping is appreciated, but cannot be d because of post rule. Well, every thing has its flip-side...

    This is likely a same problem when applying for a job - every employer requires experience, but how is possible to get any, if no o-n-e ever hires?

    But first of all, I rescpect the rules. Not trying to spam, even if I'm a newbie. So I'm not answering every thread just because getting a greater post count.

    Edit: hey, this keeps deleting the word 'o-n-e'?

    While I see your point, you can always do things like welcoming new members, which may not be of great value, but still supports community and belonging.
