    Because this having to start 10 new threads before you can reply to any threads is irritating. I am not sure how it would deter spammers either? If they can immediately start a new thread, isn't that what they are looking for? ......think I am up to 8 threads started now....2 more then I can reply!

    I agree. It's pointless and annoying for both the new member and everyone else. I actually feel like it's a kind of spam, when you have to post 10 more or less meaningless threads just to join.

    In many other forums it is the other way around: you have to have 10 replies before you can start a new thread.

    Although there are a few sections that we may need to be a bit more exclusive, it certainly should not be set that way on almost every section. I am working on correcting this.

    No worries. Because of your post, you alerted me to an issue that I needed to review.

    Enjoy your evening.

    I didn't realize you had to start 10 threads before you could reply. That certainly wasn't the case when I joined the site. I don't think I've started even 5 threads in the handful of years I've been here.

    I can see why it would be on a few select forums, but it certainly should have been on so many. I changed most of them last night, but will go through the list again today to be certain.
