To those who dun understand, let me share my opinion on y things r like this.
For e post count, admin has come out to explain which i think makes sense. If u just post senseless things for e sake of clocking mileage (50 post) then it seems tat ur main purpose is just to sell things and not for e spirit of e forum which is discussion.
As for y need email scan ic to admin if < 50 post is becoz e admin there had been a lot of scams around both offline and online. Thus e ic would be a form of identification if ur intention is to scam. Of coz how useful is it i do not noe.
Admin, this is just my opinion only.
