Anyone else comfused about posting requirements?

It seems to me like the board is intended to connect people interested in swapping diapers or trading other items for diapers, right?

Why, then, does the board make it so difficult for members to communicate at first? I understand "they" don't want spammers and other nuisance posters to innundate members with garbage posts.

But good grief, I couldn't even RESPOND to the PM that another member sent me.

And none of my thoughtful responses to other threads are counting toward my post count, either.

Seems to me like the board is misguidedly causing people to create unnecessary posts such as this one. What if I just don't have anything important enough to post about and am only interested in responding or communicating via PM to arrange for trading?

just think you have to make even more pointless posts if you have a desire for a siggy!
As I posted in another of these threads I get the 5 post req but not why fsot posts dont count toward that (i suspect thats your problem with posts not counting) and i dont get the 50 posts to get a siggy at all, 5 should be sufficient for that too imo.

glad to have you here! I'll post another pointless one. But actually I do like the restrictions because it does defer the people who are just looking to scam.

Hi I'm new here too, and I agree...I'm trying to buy and sell, and I can't even add a photo to my post. How are people going to be interested in my diapers if they can't see them?
