<div class='quotemain'> <div class='quotemain'> captvan, That is exctly right to get 10 posts maybe a couple will have substance but the section that i want to post in is locked.
getofmeland, Planetcricket is my site for cricket thus i feel this forum has more info about rugby. [/b]
Like I say don't bloody compare us, we run this forum like we do for a reason... Can you honestly tell me 10 posts is so difficult to make to be able to access an area of the forum, its not like we are charging you to view it... We have reasons for implementing this, one of which is to protect our exclusive sources and some of the Exclusive information we have like our Rugby 08 videos etc...
We feel that we don't charge anything, we don't request you donate any money to the forum, we ask for you to give us a chance and post a couple of messages, I have been on forums where you need 50 posts to access the information, I don't honestly see why people have made a big deal over the whole 10 posts, its only 10 POSTS of a decent standard... another way to put it is why have a forum, when no contributes, if everyone took the attitude I am not going to post anything then the forum would die and be pointless having a forum... A discussion Forum is called a discussion forum for a reason, which is funnily enough a discussion... wow amamzing that, I never thought of that...
That is fine and I don't have a problem with that, only I have now posted twice in the introduction forum but these posts are not been counted. If I am forced to post I would rather do it in the Rugby 08 forum as this is the reason I visit the forum
It may be true that as an individual, you would post a lot if the Rugby '08 section was open to you immediately. However, there are countless members who would probably say the same thing but actually not contribute at all.
We had literally thousands of people doing nothing but read our gaming forums and putting nothing back in. Unfortunately we can't cater for every individual, and if locking that section is the only way to get the silent majority posting regularly then so be it.
I'm a member on another forum, totally unrelated to sport, which has at least 3 times the members base of ours. The problem is that most people, me included, have only joined to access one specific feature they were offering. As a result that forum can boast a lot of members, but is totally dead to activity 90% of the time. The only way to stop this forum going the same way is to act as we have done, even if a few people are against the idea.
