I also liked that 10-post system before they could add links or create a thread but we also had a lot of members just randomly posting 10 useless posts just to create a thread or post a link. I don't even know what system works better, a lot has changed since then.In the old days, a new user had to first write a few posts in other threads before he could start his own thread.
This was good, because it forced the user to read many posts about his own problem and sometimes learn to use the forum search engine. Currently, there is no restriction for starting a thread, which results in asking the same questions over and over again on the same problems.
Such repeated questions over and over again are also a form of SPAM.
Perhaps it would be worthwhile to return to the old rule.
Several of your 'thanks' posts have been deleted as it is obvious that you are trying to get your post count up to ten to post in the dev forums
Instead of spamming the forums with 'thanks' posts [which is against XDA rules] you would be better off hitting the thanks button. To get to ten posts, head over to the general Q&A section of your device or the main Q&A forum and answer a couple of peoples questions.
This has 3 benefits - win:win situation :
1. You get to help another member and get the 'feel good factor' by helping someone out.
2. Your post count will very quickly increase - there are many people out there looking for help and you wont get into trouble by spamming.
3. You may actually learn something new today by helping someone with a problem that you may not of known about yourself - remember Google is your friend (search).
So, go on, feel good today and help someone you dont know
