    Some of you might have noticed that it's not possible to send out a PM without having 20 posts at least. This is a big problem for new user - especially for those who want to answer a PM or who signed up in adoptions and want to ask a possible master by PM.

    That's why I created this thread.

    In this thread you're allowed to post until you have 20 posts (even in a row).

    Of course, I would prefer to see everyone doing useful posts in other threads which are less spammy, but I also see the problematic of getting 20 posts.

    Since I don't want to support spamming, this thread is only for user to get 20 posts to be able to send out PMs. If I see anyone, who post here just to increase their postcount, I won't hesitate to do further stepps like warnings and bannings.

    And as always, if you have questions or if you wonder, if you're allowed to post here, just ask me (yes, in this thread, if you can't pm me). :)


    Edit: Thread is locked, since there's no limit for sending PMs anymore.

    So this could become sort of a social thread? :confused:

    Hmmmm, hadn't noticed that. In that case this thread is a really good idea!

    That's because you have more than 20 posts. ;)

    I did find the username that I was using before I signed up as DarthPeptoBismol. It is Jedi_Master_Evermore. I am terrible with remembering stuff and if I registered on certian sites and what not.

    Gunny, it could be some kind of social thread, but with the only aim to get at least 20 posts. So helping a new member to get 20 posts is ok. Just don't turn it to a social thread like the Welcome Newbie Party, ok? ;) :)


    Bismol, if you want that username back, you should ask one of the admins for help. Sometimes they can help you. :)

    Of course. :oops: But I also hadn't noticed that when I had less than 20 posts. [face_thinking]

    It was a recent change.

    After testing with some of my socks, I see that users with less than 20 posts can receive (and read) PMs, but they cannot reply or send new PMs. And this applies to all users, not just those that signed up after the change.

    No, I didn't mean that it should become a social thread, but that the thread might end up that way later on.

    Oh, I see. Sorry for misreading you, Gunny. I worried about the same thing, but in the end I decided that it would be fair to give a place where one can post/spam up to 20 posts without being afraid of spamming.

    This is more important than this thread might becoming another social thread. And if that happens, I can always aks you to stop. ;) :)

    Why don't they just get rid of that rule so we don't have to get around it at all?

    Sir, I bear a rhyme excelling
    In mystic force and magic spelling
    Celestial sprites elucidate
    All my poor striving can't relate
    Or locate he who can cogitate
    And so finally terminate! Finis.


    (That's a pneumonic device for memorizing the value of pi up to 32 decimal points.) :p

    I must say, this is the spammy-est thread I've ever posted in. :p
