New user, can't create thread - PLEASE READ THIS

NEW USERS SHOULD BE FULL MEMBERS AFTER CREATING ONE POST. IF YOU HAVE ISSUES CREATING A THREAD OR POSTING, PLEASE PM ME. THANKS

*** Below is the original post, but see above for the latest requirements. ***

Due to an ongoing problem with spam, we have enacted certain restrictions for new members. As a new member, you will be restricted from creating new threads/topics, and unable to use BBCode in your posts.

Please contribute to existing threads first, to obtain a certain amount of posts before you become a full member.

You may use the search function to find relevant threads to post in. Most likely someone else has posted a similar problem, and you may even find there is already a solution.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but this should make for a better spam-free experience for everyone.

UPDATE: The number of posts needed to become a full member is 3.
See here for some help making your first few posts:

UPDATE 2: You can also PM me with a message telling me who you are or why you want to make a post on the forums, and I can make you a full member. Also, if you have purchased a Rift with the same email as on the developer center, just let me know and that will be enough to make you a full member. I just want to be sure you are not a spammer. Thanks.

UPDATE 3: The post requirement has been lifted. Everyone should be able to create topics now.

UPDATE 4: Spam has returned, so now the 3 post requirement has returned as well.

UPDATE 5: Spam has gone away for now, so I removed the requirements.

UPDATE 6: New users only need 1 post before becoming full members.

When BBCode will start to work?

I thought I enabled BBCode again (it was disabled at one point) but maybe not. I will look into it.

Any reason CAPTCHAs weren't utilised for new posters instead?

Yes, because the problem was not bots. The spammers were manually creating accounts, so CAPTCHA won't help.

The one who writes the first three messages are guaranteed to be considered a real user?

This is arbitrary post 1 of 3 so that I can eventually post my bug. Can't there be a better way to handle this though? An Oculus Rift dev forum seems like a pretty niche forum to spam/take these safeguards against.
