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.

Interesting way to limit spam.

How about a thread that people can bump for the sole purpose of getting their numbers up? OK, I admit it, this was for getting my count up 🙂

Isn't it kind of cool that we are being encouraged to reply to existing conversations, yet quotes (which help give context to replies) don't work right for us? :lol:

So much for sharing :geek:

This forum looks like phpBB and it has numerous or even countless ways of dealing with spam. The current way may work as it is now, but I hope they look into other measures for the sake of keeping new people in.

Indeed. Makes life a little more difficult to start posting some new 'WIP" threads 😉

We can fix the quote issue, sorry about that.

We can also investigate further spam counter-measures if it becomes a problem again.

Glad I saw this because I was freaking out trying to find out how to post on a problem I've been having with Skyrim and the Rift.

I have to say I dislike this action. Now I'm forced to essentially "spam" in topics I'd never consider posting just so I can post the topic I really want.

Bump, to raise my post count to 2
