Due to spammers registering here, not posting anything, and making spam links in their signature, we have had to implement a change in user permissions.

Starting now (17 July 2008), users will not be able to add profile information including a signature until they have made more than 10 posts. In addition, guests to the site will not be able to view any user profile. This second restriction may be lifted in the future.

Sorry for the inconvenience, and blame the spammers who ruin things for everybody.

I supose that the people with more than 25 posts are now called Semi-Newbie, I was wondering why there was a new membergroup, thanks for the explanation.

I don't know if this happened at the same time but the number of stars seems to jump by two instead of one from "Sr. Member" which has 4 to "Simple Machines Hero" which has 6.

I was wondering about Semi-Newbie too. xD

Anyways, I personally find it a good idea. No more newb spam.  :P

Only 8,000 more to go and you too can be a super hero :)

I am glad that people understand the need to keep SMF from becoming a spam depot :)

I think this is a good rule. I hate spam!
<span style="font-size: 12px; color: red;">Do Not Pm Me For Support. Please use the appropriate board</span>

will

I can understand the reasoning for this rule, but unfortunately I am two posts shy of the required ten posts (only one after this post).  I've had this account for quite a long time and just realized today it is using an old email address (b/c of the automated birthday message), so I need one more post to fix that.

Thats a great rule, cuz @ the other smf powerd forums i been 2 are full of users that neva post.

I can read it. Though, I generally have a dislike for anything other than black on a forum.

I've know why I can't add profile information.

Good, almost thought I'd lost it for a second or two. :P

Those aren't bad to implement, by the way.
