Appeal to waive min. 15 post for permission to post URLs rule: "You are only allowed to post URLs to other sites after you have made 15 posts or more." As experienced, I'm unable to conduct any logical discussion about a topic I wish to post due to the a/m problem (no picts/ URLs allowed). I however do know of another local (Singapore) forum that seems to have better rules that prevent newbies from posting spam etc by restricting the initial rate of posts to </= 5 posts/hr. Perhaps this forum's mods could consider (/ discuss this issue here so that perhaps I might achieve my 15 posts threshold- to post my message which includes URLs?) (PS: U can find the relevant forum message at XXXXXby searching google for the words below in bold) -Restriction on posting by Newbies - XXXXX "With the growing number of members in MCF, we have seen an increased number of newbies who come in to spam the forum. Therefore, we have imposed a maximum post number for newbies. All members with less than 10 posts will be allowed to post only a maximum of 5 posts per hour. Any feedback is appreciated. "
