    Info for new members

    Limitations for new members:

    10 posts and 7 days of registration = PM option becomes available.
    15 posts - they get the ability to use images, smilies & URLs
    10 days - they get off-topic access

    Some tips for new members:
    1. to post photos post broken links
    ie: xxxx://forums.bimmerforums .com/forum/showthread. php?t=618529

    people can put two and two together and make them work. You can also see about emailing your photo to another member to help you out.

    2. Don't whore for posts.
    We have a nifty new software that merges them all together, so you are just wasting your time and energy

    3. Read the rules
    This will help you get along here without getting in trouble: http://www.bimmerforums.com/rules.php

    4. Make sure your post is in the right spot.
    If you have a question about a specific model, put it in the specific model subforum.

    5. Check for info before you post
    I don't want to discourage anyone from posting, however, this forum has a lot of really good information already here that may be better than the info you would get from making a new thread. Many subforums have stuck threads on the top with names such as "Frequently asked Questions" or "Read Before Posting" there is a wealth of info in here that you should take advantage of. You can also try searching.

    6. Don't be afraid to ask us for help
    If something doesn't make sense or something is being very rude to you, etc. Don't be afraid to take it up with the moderators. We are here for a reason. We like new members and want to keep them,

    25 posts - something else happens
    > 100 posts - you get an avatar (image under username) option

    Useless posting to acquire added features will probably result in posting restrictions and post count starting over from 0, or close to it.
    Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by hundreds of engineers that get paid thousands of dollars for something you bought at Pep Boys because your buddy who doesn't have a job told you it was 'better'?!?

    AHHH! That's why I see no off topic forum! I have barely a thing to contribute with my 325ic being sold, and no new BMW on the driveway!

    They encourage us to post messages, but throw in roadblocks. I tried to post a "how to" message, but I included a Smilie and the message was rejected. All my time composing it was lost. What a waste of time! I won't try that again.
