Just curious. Do I have to post five new threads in the "new member introduction" section in order to be able to reply to other posts in other sections? This site is new to me and I have posted on thread already and need to continue. Just learning how to use this site, not really sure how to post in other sections. Any comments are welcome. Sgt. Flake

Just reply to the posts as you see fit.

Many will get the minimum 5 posts by saying hello in the "Intro" section and the other "Five post commandos" will post nonsense just to gain access to the downloads.

We usually merge all of those "Post one", "Post two", etc. posts into one which causes them to go back to square one.

You can get your first 5 posts by posting anywhere you want. It will take a while before the system recognizes that you have 5 posts though. Sometimes overnight as the system resets. So be patient.

Just make sure you're trying to post in the right section. Several of the first ones listed are for VIP members only and you cant make posts in there. The ones for the rest of us are down the page a bit.
