I suggest getting rid of the 9 post CAP in a 24 hour period for new members! It's not my fault that I joined on the 21st of the month, didn't realize the PTP incentive until my like 5th day, didn't realize there was a 9 post cap until yesterday and i MAY barely make it to 30 in time... who knows!? There is a lot of info on FC and it takes time to sort and read through it all.
I just don't think the cap is a good way to keep newbies encouraged to stay on if they're being denied being active.... just my 2 cents...
The 9 post limit gives new members time to figure out the site without flooding the forum. You shouldn't be trying to rush to get 30 posts in a week.Just start off in August.
Just because I'm new doesn't mean what I have to say is worth any less than anyone else who has been here for years. I'll make the 30 post minimum this month, I've got the posts, thanks.
I didn't say anything about newer members posts being worth less. No one, regardless of their time on the site, should be trying to rush to get all their posts in a short time because chances are they aren't going to be contributory.
I don't see the issue with me trying to get 30 posts in a week... that's actually, on average, just 4-5 posts a day, far from "newbie flooding."
I'm just going to be honest and say that I greatly disagree with you, because I've actually contributed
to the posts that I have replied to.
Plus, it seemed like you were shutting down me wanting
to put the hard(er) work in. I figured, if anything people would be like "heck ya! Good luck and go get that bonus!" At least, that's what I've experienced elsewhere in the forum.
Regardless though, I made 35 posts for July and was able to put in the request sooo... it was worth it.
