We have lifted all the restrictions for new users. New members will be able to post anywhere on the forum as soon as they sign up. We've done this because the mod team unanimously agreed that it was stifling the flow of traffic into the site.
What this means for you is that we need you guys to take reporting bot posts seriously. When you see a bot post, report it right away. If you are not sure if somebody is a bot, send one of us a PM and we'll discuss it.
