Recently we have been getting hit by human spammers leaving their links all over the site. Our previous laidback approach to signatures and posting of links was being abused by people just wanting to drop their links and leave, of course this has caused all kinds of trouble for our staff who have had to moderate large amounts of posts that have only had the purpose to advertise. But not even in our advertising forum. So we now have a system in place that requires you to have no less than 20 Posts in order to edit your signature , View attachments or post live links anywhere. Posting in the forum games will not count. If you have reached the required postcount you may have to wait 15 minutes for the system to update you. This is not here to be an inconvenience to you, It is here to protect legitimate users and our staff from mass amounts of spam posts while using the forums. Here is a clear list of what permissions you get and at which postcount New users 0-20 posts Post replies and threads Upload an avatar Follow & Like Edit user info Basic Users 20-100 posts Post replies and threads Upload an avatar Follow & Like Edit user info Showcase threads Post links Create Signatures Download resources Advanced Users (To become an advanced user you need to have 100+ posts, been a member for 7 days and have had 5 likes from other members) Post replies and threads Upload an avatar Follow & Like Edit user info Showcase threads Post links Create Signatures *All links you post are DOFOLLOW* User upgrades are automatic and are handled by the system, users are updated every 20 minutes via a cron job. If you can't post links or anything else after you reach the required postcount then please wait a few minutes for the system to upgrade you.
