    There are probably many new members who are frustrated by it, and we do understand that it is inconvenient. However, the reason it was set in place was to ward off spammers and self-promoters.

    We don't like placing restrictions on new members, but some things that come to be are unfortunate consequences of the internet being the internet

    It is counting correctly. Posts in general chat and introductions don't count

    unfortunate. i don't know what value i could possibly add to the forums as a total novice. i could only make noise, and i don't want to make noise. it's mean.

    i will try and think of something valuable and creative to say in other forums without ruining the vibe.

    You can ask your question, post the code. If you really need to show us, then you can always post the link between quotes (I think that'll fool the filter).
    As said before, it's not to scare of new forum members, but to avoid the forum being spammed.
    And if you stick around, you'll see that SP is a open, welcoming comunity too, with lots of very capable ppl
