    I just joined and wanted to share pics of my new car. I guess I'll have to wait till I hit 15 posts... only 14 more to go.

    This is a good thread, but people shouldn't have to hunt down the information. Why not place it in the FAQ?

    Usless posting to acquire added features will probably result in posting restrictions a starting over from 0, or close to it.
    Thanks for posting!

    I dont see specific restrictions (other than size of course) for adding a pic to my signature. In my CP it says "I may not" added a pic to my signature, yet, I see others with less posts than me having a pic in the signature. Can you please tell me the rules/restrictions behind pics in signatures? Thank you.

    so it's quite stupid you can not quote someone that used a picture in their post because if you do your response will not be posted. also personally found it i dunno a better way to say it? pointless? that you can't post pictures or URL's or anything until i've made so many posts... why was this rule enstated..? when i join a new forum i've always posted pics of my car and info of myself as a good introduction and a way to say hello and start on the board...

    The system is designed to eliminate spam on the site. People come in and post cell phones for sale in each sub section, and an inability to post links or photos reduces these people. As for PMs.... yep, they spammed that too.

    I believe the photo system is due to bandwidth. SOme forums make you pay for an avatar.

    These systems are only temporary heartaches in order to gain full access to the forum. Just post as you would normally do, only without links or photos, you can email photos of a member to upload them. Being active in a productive way is the best way to raise your post count, then you can join the ranks with your abilities.
