    Default Please pardon my threads

    I'm a new member here and I was reading about the restriction to replying to conversations until I have created 10 posts of my own. I agree, it seems a little counterintuitive. I kinda feel like replying is where I'm making a contribution to the conversation, and starting conversations is kinda the opposite.

    But, I do have things to talk about, so please pardon me in advance. It just feels weird to start a bunch of conversations, but I promise, once I'm cleared to reply, I will do so!

    Welcome! I wonder why they make you do that? I'm glad they didn't have that restriction when I joined or I would have never stuck around. In all the years I have been a member I have most likely not started 10 threads! Probably why there isn't a lot of new members here.

    Welcome to the Village!!! Just make the other 9 and get it over with it. Agree it's dumb. Can't remember if I had to do that back in the day.

    I first joined about 2.5 years ago, there was no limits then. this is a recent(ish) change and yes quite counterproductive to getting new members. I only had 2, maybe 3 posts from back then, and they luckily counted to my 10 now needed. It's a struggle, or was for me, to figure out 10 posts to create so i could converse with the community.

    I just reported spam from a "new member" who is able to make multiple spam posts. If the requirement was to have 10 replies before making a new post, I think it would eliminate this. Also a limit on links in posts by new members would help. But I guess we are on our own here, no mods around, when the spammers find out, there goes the forum.
