    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. "

    Every member here has respected the rule. What makes you so different? Get posting or alternatively, go forth and multiply.

    Is this really allowed, looks like a rather disreputable way to introduce oneself in the forum... Thus the suggestion that 'newbies' should be allowed to post URLs but not >/= 5 posts per hr.

    Not A Good Idea.

    I think they should increase it to 1000 posts, it will keep the nuts out.

    Sorry, been following US elections and they all say change, change, change, change....
    thus my suggestion hoping to receive a helpful response...
    (like U could share your post count rather than advise to spam/ comment without sufficient discretion)
