Would you mind if I spam the forum?
« on: July 13, 2016, 08:37:37 AM »
Been a member here for the past 4 years. Used to be able to post For Sale/Wanted ads, but not anymore. I am supposed to have 50 posts to do that, but my count shows 35. So I need 15 posts to partake in the classifieds, right? Minor discrepancy is that, if I go into my user stats, it shows I have made 62 posts already, excluding this one. :thinking:

So, may I post 14 times in this thread to get my count up to 50? Would that be against the TOS?

You can try, but you may risk having BWS reset your post count to zero...  :point:

the admins dont like spamming to reach specific post counts ...... as mentioned above they will reset you or make it dwindle each time you get close

so the best thing to do is to participate in normal threads (please note do not post one liner replies which could be construed as spam)

and the worst part is, now that you have made this thread they will be watching you like hawks to see your next move which i suggest should be a sharpish apology and then continuous posting in a normal manner showing participation in the forum ..... otherwise you could find your post count dwindling even though you keep posting

one more note posting in the classifieds does not add to your post count for the purposes of being able to use the classifieds .... hence you will need 50 posts in all other sections of the forum before being able to use the classifieds

Fair point, and I do where I can. Also fine with the 50 post count to post in classifieds, but why penalize the older members if you apply a rule after their registration? I have posted in the Wanted and For Sale section before, but then the rule got introduced and now I cant.

So that is what is screwing me now. :'(

A dare? :angel:

many before you have tried and as soon as they think they have reached 49 their post count is mysteriously diverted to 10 .... so do not try to circumvent the rule ie once they notice you then you will be sorry and thereafter trying forever to reach that 50 .... without quite getting there

Posts in the classifieds do not augment your post count
