i can't find any info on this 12 hour wait for posts thing. am I on some sort of probation? did I do something wrong? all i did was register, I have 2 posts, 3 once this one goes through. So I dont see how I could have done something wrong. :(

I'm very sorry if I did.

your first 10 (i think) posts have to get personally approved by a mod (or something like that)

this was done to cut down on people spamming the forums or using new accounts to just flame away, and stuff...

first 5 posts. Its just to stop the spammers etc.

You can have an avatar after 20 and custom user text after 30 (and a full month)

those figures are right, i never remember ^_^

smart in the long run but annoying in the short run

Yes very annoying.. and ... pointless. If someone spams ban them, that simple.

Oh well. hopefully some day I'll have the freedome to comunicate with people here.

its not pointless, once the person has spammed they are not going to stay around to do it again, so there is no use in the ban.

This method stops the spamming from happening in the first place, prevention is a much more effective method.

You have the freedom to communicate when you sign up, the mods dont change / delete posts unless it goes against policy, in which case your freedom doesnt exist.
