Post requirements



So, I'm sure there's a reasonable explanation that I'm not aware of, but I need to rant a little bit because I'm frustrated (and I may be frustrated because there's some context I'm missing, or somesuch):


I need 10 posts in order to be able to put my site on the directory, access themes, add anything to the playby directory, etc.  I get that, I'm guessing it's to prevent people coming on here and posting porn or spam or taking stuff without giving credit.  This isn't the first site I've joined with a post-minimum requirement, and while I'm not a fan, I can understand why sites would choose to implement this requirement.


Yet, seemingly arbitrarily, half the site is (coded/designated/whatever the term is) such that it does not contribute to post count.  Personally, I don't get anything out of discussion topics; it's like being an introvert forced to make small talk, it's painful and makes it harder for me to engage, not easier.  It also seems to put at a disadvantage users who, like myself, don't necessarily want/need to request lots of graphics or coding help or the like.


... I had a couple other points to make but my train of thought left the station without me. Anyway, if there's some clarification to be had, I'd be grateful.


EDIT: Apparently this is one board that does not contribute to the post count, which is adding to my frustration. Which boards do or don't increase post count??

To be clear most things DO contribute but not all show immediately. Posting in Playbys will contribute to your total count but it does require a moderator to approve it before it shows in your count, we also gate-kept this due to people joining and not reading the requirements to submit. We moderate these for a number of reasons but primarily to verify that the submissions are following rules. We have had a number of times that porn has come up but its more often then not that things are chosen with no supporting image or people do image "dumps" instead of just submitting images that support the options available.


For the most part the only things that do not contribute to count is going to be posting in staff related areas (like this one) or status updates. If you're finding that things aren't contributing it could be because they are not provided until approved (so like the playby directory) or its an area that isn't considered a contribution because its not intended to be.


This means commenting on or creating new guides will contribute, submitting to the gallery for avatars, will contribute and more. We just sectioned off parts.
