You release that the Site is for Developers yes, however 99% of newly registered users are not developers thus this is put in place.
The site is also about helping each other so why not answer some people questions (as if your already a developer im sure there are questions you can answer) help a few people and boom you have more than enough posts
I must admit that I find it frustrating that I can't post feedback on a ROM, as requested by the maker (UltimaROM/Kryten2k35) simply because I haven't posted some other silly stuff on xda-developers before.
I'm not trying to stir the waters, honestly, but I haven't seen a question I can answer which doesn't already have dozens of answers (so I don't see the point in spamming), I answer my own questions by googling (often ending up on xda-developers, reading tens of pages of posts to get somewhere, and often actually getting there... thanks everyone!). It's especially frustrating when the guide for getting 10 posts says "Always read lots post little" -- something I have been doing, quite a lot, really. I'm no mobile dev, but I am a programmer by trade (12 years now) so I have an idea of how to conduct myself -- and how to be useful to an open-source / free project with contributions other than code. I think that I have some not-completely-useless feedback for Kryten2k35, but I can't give it. And I wouldn't email it even if I had an address to email it to -- it would just be more crap in his (I'm assuming?) inbox.
Anyway, that's my 2c worth. Let me go look again if there's some question I can actually help on, which doesn't have a plethora of perfectly good answers. The 10-post rule may also explain the number of silly / useless comments on open forums -- comments that I wade through when coming here from google. I really want to be a good citizen -- just voicing my (probably insignificant) opinion. And getting 1/10 posts (:
edit: I take some of that back: I have been able to find 3 threads I can help on. Pity I have to wait so long between posts... 5 minutes takes forever when you're waiting for them to pass ):
I couldnt have possibly resisted posting it
