Default Counter Productive Posting rules

Feel free to delete this / moderate this but things are starting to get a little frustrating.

I've been around the modding scene for over 15 years, not just phones but most consoles, tv boxes etc. I know how to search threads for information, and spend a lot of time reading tutorials, applying methods from one technology to another etc.

As a result, I don't need to post frequent... hey me too... or aren't Samsung BS type responses. However, because I moderate my posting to only the essentials, when I do have relevant feedback about problems encountered with custom roms etc, I am unable to do so because I haven't spammed the forums with "Hi... My names Barbie will you be my friend " posts.

Yes I could / can PM the authors / dev's but that flies in the face of having a community in the first place and drives development underground.

Anyway... rant over......... XDA is a fantastic resource and top notch community,

My names Barbie, will you be my friend......

Every single user, new or old has the ability to post their question in the Q&A subforums. Or perhaps you would prefer wading through 100's of spam posts in development of members trying to sell you iPhones or escort services. There are many reasons for the 10 post restriction...not least of all for the 10000 new users joining everyday and want to jump into development in a ROM thread and ask "How do I root?". You could very easily also help a few members with their questions in Q&A rather than post a thread like this.

Have a nice day Barbie
Cheers from Ken
