Welcome helltick!

You do indeed have to make 20 posts before you can post a NEW thread on any of the other Forums, however, you can still post REPLIES to existing threads on other Forums that count towards your 20 posts.

It's just a way to keep trolls from popping in and making one new controversial thread and disappearing, never to be heard from again...as well as to keep away the spammers and marketers.

Feel free to have a look around and dive in head first into any of the existing threads and conversations. You'll be at 20 posts before you realize it.

You can post in any forum friend, you just can't create a thread.

Welcome to ATS I hope you enjoy yourself here.

20 is indeed a strange choice : ten should've been ok imvho.

Well. One more post.


And a trilinesque one, by the way.

You can make 20 posts anywhere you like (not just in this forum), but you cannot create any threads anywhere but here (introductions only) until you've made 20 posts in total. Hope that clears it up.

Woah, you can stop now.. you already made over 30 posts and actually hit the 20 mark on your last post on this very thread! Ah, the irony.. Anyway, am curious to see your soon-to-be threads!

why so? prevents or at least minimizes crapola...

just to post a New thread?

you'd have been better off just contacting a staff member, requesting that your thread,question or concern be allowed.

we're here to aide and assist, after all.

always, but a U2U away.

Why do I feel as if every female here was just called a bitch?

Can we say offensive!


I dont see you reaching many more points with that attitude.

I dont think its a bad policy at all - sorry you feel that way OP. Please make yourself aware of the T&C's of ATS because that is very important to do in order to remain a member - in good standing.

You obviously havent reviewed the sites T&C or you wouldnt have the questions you do. MUCH is covered there and it exists for a reason.

Good Luck!

(Edited to suggest T&C review)

20 posts go by faster then you think. I made 300 in 2 weeks, I would have made more if it wasnt for the long flight home; lol

Apology accepted! Very cool of you!

You seem a lil frustrated... I understand. ATS is A LOT to take in at once. But please, so that we may keep you around, become familiar with the T&C's of the site.

We members are held to that - STRICTLY! And thats how we want it. Because these standards allows those less desirable to be removed.

Again - Good luck and thank you for your apology - very cool.

I'm here just to make the one thread. It seems ALOT to just do that

I believe that if you are serious about sticking around here, you found find it hard to post replied to various threads of interest...isn't that really the point?

Yes, patience is also a virtue.

Yeah well, I have the same problem right now but I'm trying to go less aimlessly around
I think it might invite new members to reply somewhat useless lines just to get their postcount up


I'm not implying you do but I figure some might actually do it that way.
