    I visited a forum earlier today where someone was asking about suppliers of flowers, I tried to post a link but this was refused as I had posted less than 25 times, this does not make sense as some new joiners could have some useful sites to help others, which is what I thought the forums were all about.

    Sorry you feel that way but it gets rid of spam and most people who have a interest in crafts post 25 in a matter of days... For people who arn't into crafts tend to have issuses with this.. ask any of the people who have joined ?

      I run my own crafts business and have been working in the crafts field for over 30 years both in supplying and teaching craft. I would be hard pushed with the amount of products I produce, to earn a living, to post to 25 forums in a few days.
      I am a member of 2 USA forums involved in the craft business and they have no restrictions for new members as they consider all input is valuable. Having been in the industry for this length of time I have a lot of good suppliers which I was willing to pass on.
      I felt that the previous reply inferred that I had no experience and was merely a hobbyist.

        don't get upset

        Hi there, don't get upset. Keeping the 25 posts rule works & it does keep the spammers out. As Mr M said it's really quick to post 25 and we will all welcome your future input. Thank you in advance.

          I don't think Mr M's reply was personally directed to you Carol I think he was simply explaining why we have that rule and that most members are happy to stick around and get their post count up

          Trust me even those forums wouldn't see posts with links to porn sites and chinese tat as valuable and this is what the 25 post rule discourages

            Hello & & please don't take offence the rule applies to all of us. I thought it would be a hard task to reach 25 posts and now look at how many I've got!!! The forum really is addictive and I'm sure you'll reach 25 posts in no time. What's nice about this forum is that everyone who has an interest in crafts is welcome (hobbyist, or, professional) and you don't get any spam

              I know how you feel, I got politely put in my place when I first joined and felt a bit miffed but I can now see how this rule and the job the moderators do keeps the forum nice and clean and tidy for genuine crafter to enjoy. Please stay and enjoy it with us I am sure you have a lot to imput
