I've just deleted a bunch of comments in this thread from newbies who don't yet have the required permissions to comment or participate in discussions. Read the rules folks: rules/forum-permissions-for-new-users-t572.html
However, here are a few salient points from those comments that I'd like to address (again):
As a frequent visitor I feel that, at least for me, the reasons to come less often is due to AMS being locked away for people with 20 posts, something I will never have because even a valid and constructive post/reply like this will simply get deleted.
Replies may be valid and/or constructive but, if you don't yet have the permissions to post replies or comments, they will
be deleted 'cos you don't have permission.
Not to forget the people that only post about 25 sets just to make sure to get over the 20 post limit and are then ever seen or heard of ever again. I could've easily grabbed a few sets from other places and post them here, however I see no honor in that and only see it as spamming within the given rules.
A member who simply lurks and leeches after contributing 20 posts is fine. The whole point is that to gain access to all areas of the forum, and acquire the necessary permissions to comment & make requests, a member must
first contribute. Those who don't wish to do so are free to lurk in the restricted areas to which they have access, but they may not
post comments/replies/requests anywhere.
I prefer lurking so at my current rate I'll have the required number of posts in another 2 or 3 years.
Incorrect; if you only post comments without contributing any content, you won't reach the required number at all as they will be deleted every time.
The main reason I don't visit more is due to some of the area's being blocked until you have 20 post. I mean I would be glad to post something, but every thing I have is already on hear. So I literately don't know what to do to get the 20 post. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
The easiest way to contribute 20 valid posts of content is to post model sets as galleries. You surely have in your collection at least 20 model sets that have not yet been posted as galleries. If you do not, then you still have at least 3 options:
1) Look through the sub-forums to which you do have access for any model sets that have not yet been posted as galleries. When you find some - and you surely will - download them, then upload the images to an allowed imagehost and post them as galleries. Remember though: no girls under 13yo in the Galleries sections.
2) Leverage the Galleries Collections
or Themed Galleries Collections
sub-forums (one of each in NoNude and in Nude) to create your own collection topic, or contribute to some existing collection topics. No duplicate topics though, and no duplicate postings in existing topics. Those new sections open up a whole new world of possibilities because even if a set has already been posted as a single gallery, it can also
be included in a collection topic.
3) This is not the only forum/site/blog on the net.
There is tons of appropriate content elsewhere that can be downloaded and posted here.
