    Sorry if this has been discussed before..

    I have noticed that many new people are having trouble making the 20 post count without resorting to spam in order to PM. This has happened a few times wen somebody needs the answer to just one question and another person (sometimes myself) is interested in answering it. In this situation Private Message is often a more convenient way to converse then through a thread..

    I feel that 20 posts for somebody, looking for help, with minimal PSP knowledge is not an easy goal.. Especially if they are in desperate need of help they will not care about creating useless posts.

    Perhaps 10 posts or even 5 posts would still encourage new members to post..

    Is this possible to change?

    if not we will have to constantly hand out our emails to prevent spam in the forums...

    Thanx mods and admin..

    Agreed, it should stay 20 for links, but for PM it should only require 5.

    Yeah, just the admin though, you would have to PM the thread most likely, the moderators cpanel is pretty plain, ip lookup, banning, and user lookup at most.

    I dont think the 20 posts is accounting for most of the spam. its people tryign to get 200 posts for the august competition.

    Well happily this thread made me realize people hate spam just as much as me here. ^_^ Hurrah.

    I've had forums that actually enjoy spam...which is definitely sad. I've cut ties with those forums so this is a good experience forum wise.
