Lightbulb A little suggestion

Don't get me wrong, I'm not being offensive and I do respect everyone in here and I greatly appreciate the people who manage this forum and keep it running in a good atmosphere.
Okay, so I'm one of the guys who is still struggling on 30 posts to post pictures. I totally understand this is to provide people from doing commercial, selling, or any other stuff that would annoy other members. However, I was thinking if you guys can make the "Introductions" page or/and "members rides" page to be an exception since people normally do not sell stuff up there. It's like a "introduce yourself" thing on the first day of class so people get a chance to know each other and start from there instead of looking all over on old threads and leave comments like " your wheels look sick ", " I love your mods", etc. May be its just me, I know 30 posts are super easy but I feel kinda embarrass doing it especially when I don't know the people here. I felt even worse after I found out lots of people who left comment in the tread would get a email due to my comments and they know clearly that I am just struggling for 30 posts. I kinda think that I would feel alot more comfortable to leave comments if I get to know the people in here first. And this is the main reason I'm still far away from 30 posts and why I'm putting my time writing this tread but not just leaving comments and get the posts filled up.
I totally understand that this forum runs perfectly in its own way and I am completely unfamiliar with forum managing. I just wanna kinda share my own opinion, so if anyone feel the same way, they can leave their comments here. If anyone here feel negatively reading this tread, I apologize for it and i will be willing to ask for thread deleted.

Thank you for reading.

Re: A little suggestion

I got my 30 pretty fast, mainly just saying hi to others who posted in the intro forum, and combing the "New Posts" looking for something I could reply to intelligently.

Most people likely won't get emails about your replies because they'll have that option changed/disabled on their preferences page.

But I agree in that it is a little over-the-top. I haven't seen a post count pre-limit like that in an introductions part of the forum. However, the web-masters may have had some serious issues with spammers in the past which would warrant this.

yea, I guess I'll start doing the same thing Thanks for sharing your experiences And I'll definitely check out the preferences page; sorry for being a newbie Totally understanding why the web masters would have concerns about it.

Re: A little suggestion

We were once bomaraded by porn all the time. It didn't matter teh forum section, it got there and you opened thread and would find kiddie porn put up by spambots. The 30 post limit makes sure that doesn't happen.

Seriously the off topic stuff you can get 30 posts in less than 15 minutes easily...

Just have fun, and I hope that explains the reason for the rules

Re: A little suggestion

Well, you've been a member for more than a year, so I'm just going to guess you don't visit the site often. Personally, I don't advise the hello tactic, you have no idea how many PM we get from members complaining about the same person saying "hello" in every intro thread - and it is annoying.

You didn't become a member here to do this...





Sounds to me like you want to post something with some substance (which I like the sound of and will be giving you a Rep point for stating so), but in the mean time, I offer this:

Off topic is the place to get to know people. Your post count will probably be off the charts before you know it just hanging out there.

BTW, although we frown on post padding, it's impossible to post pad in your own intro thread...
