just a generic rule for bot defense and spammers i think, and maybe to prevent it from being just a craigslist bulletin board. lately 3/4 of the posts are in the for sale section. i guess thats the matter, i assume you're german?

its to prevent new users from signing up just to sell something, at 10 posts they have to atleast put in a little effort :P

Interesting note on this... I have lurked here from 2006 and was sent a link to an add in the classifieds. I could see the post before I logged in. Now that I am logged in I cannot see the post and obviously not post in the thread. I understand teh min posts to post in the section, but just to view it? Thats wierd?

I run Phpbb boards for Minnesota- I'm as dumb as a rock- There are settings which can change this easily- And, perhaps five posts would be
better than making someone do ten stupid ones ...
