why do you need to post 5 things to get the dot removed from your name?

    i would understand that you would have to make at least one post, but i dont really want to waste anothers time by posting nonsense just to get rid of my dot. is there any news on if this requirement will be changed?

    Just a suggestion but you could post something non-nonsensical?

    From memory, it's a reasonably recent requirement, due to some new members posting spam repeatedly. 5 posts is not many to 'endure' to get rid of a liddle iddy biddy dot is it? :lol:

    That's precisely it. A little while back we had several series of spammers/spambots. Most of them would just post once, either on the forum or via the forum's private messaging system.

    The basic forum features are available before having a post count of 5, however after posting 5 times, all forum features, like the PM system become accessible :)
