Sure, I understand the reason... but now I'm having to make spam posts so I can post my (hopefully useful to someone) pictures... and they are hosted on THIS site!

Lol, I hope you guys don't get warned/banned.

I'm trying to make actually contributing posts around the site as much as I can, and I'm still only at 8.

Yay...

Well, I hope the admins would understand. I mean, it's not like their spamming up and down the forums to do this; they're keeping their "spam" to the same thread which, incidentally, was created to up the post count.

Yup, I'm in the same boat. I have pictures of exactly what another member was asking to see, but I can't post them yet.

I agree the limitation can be frustrating, and I am open to trying out new ideas. I had tested a few spam deterring post options a few years ago, and this one seemed to work the best overall. I'll be testing some new features/ideas with the new forum. I would prefer to do away with the 15 post limitation, but spammers are relentless and I without some protection you would be surprised how fast things get out of hand.

Thank you for the feedback,
Charlie

all the 15 post limitation does is encourage "spamming" in a sense. for instance, I want to post a question with a video to support my question, but since the 15 post limitation is in place i had no choice but to go to old threads and start commenting. hope this gets fixed it's really inconvenient.
