OK, to clarify for you and others wondering about this: Newbie
class (less than 5 posts) can
post in the other sections as long as their posts meet the criteria linked HERE
. If they don't, the posts will be deleted or moved to the Newbie section as the Moderator sees fit.
The reason Newbies see a notice telling them to post in the Newbie section first is because 90% come from other Forums where it's acceptable to post nonsense like "thx for this!!!!!!" or "me too!!!!!!!" type BS, or they start new threads on existing topics, post in the wrong section, etc.
The majority of our Staff are adults (primarily over 25 years old, with some as high as 50!) and we don't wish to sift through 1,000 BS posts daily in the regular Forum sections... we're seeking thought-out, intelligent replies from educated users.
That being said, our goal is to keep all "Newbie" posts in the Newbie section... with the hopes that Newbies will see how our Forum works by checking here, and then (when they feel confident) they can post in the others to accrue their required 5 Quality Posts
to download files.
If YOU feel you are ready to make quality posts on the other sections by all means go for it. The worst that will happen in most cases is if the Mods don't feel the post is acceptable it will get moved here or nuked.
PS: The post you made here was fine. It was more than 5 words, showing you put a few minutes of your time (and brain) into writing it.
