    Just to clear up something that was asked several times from people via E-mails, we have a restriction on new posters from being able to start threads. The primary reason is to prevent automated spam posts, which flood the forums and cause a lot of headaches both from our users and our moderators. You can obviously reply to current threads to build your post count up, which once you're an established poster here it will allow you to be able to begin posting your own threads.

    I've lowered the minimum post restriction to 50 in the main forum prior to starting threads to prevent new users from other teams from coming into the main forum and spamming the board with flame threads, etc. This restriction also comes into play for our own fans, as it allows new users the chance to get to know the rest of the people in the community before starting their own topics, as by replying to current threads it allows people to hear your opinions and learn a little about you so that you'll be more likely to get interaction from the community when you do add a new topic. This is a high traffic forum and we're also looking for the passionate fans who are here for the long haul. We're glad to have each of you here, and we look forward to your contribution!
