    Exclamation Welcoming New Members *5 posts a day MAX*

    Advertisements
    It has come to the attention of the MSOS Staff that we have members that are flooding the Newbie section of the boards with welcome posts to up their post counts. While we love the fact that these members are only trying to be friendly, it is against TOS to flood the board with the same post/smiley over and over.

    You may not exceed 5 posts a day, in 5 different threads, in the newbie section.
    Please use our General posting or Bored Room if you want to get to know other members better. Go into threads that you have some experience in and give advice or go into ones where you have similar questions and ask away. *This max does not count if you are holding a conversation with someone in a thread"

    ETA: This does not apply to staff members who go in and post that standard "welcome" message since we try to get that thread into EVERY intro post.

    ETA II: Another good rule of thumb is to not post in threads that were posted before you became a member.

    *UPDATE*


    As you will see above we have changed the maximum number from 10 to 5. People have been flooding the new posts page with a wall of welcomes. Also, it has come to our attention that people are maintaining their activity level by getting their 10 posts a day in the newbie section, which is a no go.

    Please try to keep your welcome posts to under ten post per day. Please use our General posting or Bored Room if you want to get to know other members better. Go into threads that you have some experience in and give advice or go into ones where you have similar questions and ask away.
    This was totally my plan for today...

    Can I still go on a voting spree?

    I thought posting in the newbie section did not impact your post count. Or was that the olden days? (not that I would know anything about the olden days...)


    Just tested it and posting in the newbie section does in fact increase ones post count.

    This was true, I have no idea if it changed.
