Once you hit 25 posts, you will become a full member and have PM privileges.

Just FYI for others posting jibberish just to get to 25 posts defeats the purpose of the limit. I'd imagine if a bunch of people start doing that instead of posting actual contributing content they are going to have their post count moderated to reflect the actual posts they've added. Remember it doesn't take long to get to 25 by actually talking to people and asking questions and contributing to the site. Have patience grasshopper!

Also as an fyi, for those that think we are being petty or stupid, this has been done as a means of combating spamers more than anything. You have no idea how much we have had to find ways of cracking down against spammers. We have had as many as 300 spam accounts a day to deal with and now that all these things have been put in place, it had been drastically reduced.

OP...I'm with ya....I think you're on MASC aren't you?? Too bad since this is a sister forum (I think) that if you have the same screen name and are involved over there that you can't get retro'd onto this site. Obviously wouldn't be a spammer. ;) All the same, I'm close! :) Just wanted to expand my horizons to the southern crew!

As the clubs are separate, so are the websites. There is no automated way to do all of that and the amount of time required to monitor all sites and do that manually is unreasonable. Truly, no one meant any offense and you have to understand the "why" here. For a while it would take 3 hrs a night to go through and deal with spammer crap. That is time that could be spent discussing something real here or with family. No one is upset about it. In one hand it was humorous. If we didn't implement these steps, penis enlargement, online gaming, porn etc etc etc would be all over here and we all prefer for people to be able to look that up on their own if they wish than have some spammer give new meaning to yellow tang ; )

You could probably get a bigger clownfish, but it doesn't matter if there isn't an anemone for it to host in. Just Kidding.

It also does benefit the club now, by having someway to reward contribution. 25 posts is a pretty small hurdle to obtain membership into a club.

The upgrading happens automatically via the site software once you reach 25 posts. However, it can take up to an hour for it to do it.
