    here is where i will move legit post pads

    i will delete them again as soon as the new user is assimilated completely to the collective

    post padding to reach the 25 posts just to post in the classifieds is not allowed.

    understand that even if you had the necessary 25 posts to create a thread in the classifieds, you wouldn't have the "credibility" to be able to sell to regular AH members. you need to build up that credibility by posting regularly

    So what defines a legit post pad? I am a little confused by that.

    *stuttering*..oh heh-hey m-mike......I didn't see you standing there.

    The only way I can see this thread being usefull if it becomes a sticky in the Site Suggestions & Feedback forum or is constantly bumped so that this thread is shown in the main forum at all times for the newbs (this option is obviously not plausable)....so you do the math;)

    BTW I am surprised post padding 25 posts is not a bannable offense.

    Any post padding from a newbie that goes by without an admin or mod catching them. If we catch them, we delete the posts and warn them. If they continue, then they get a special message from the site server next time they try to log in. :rolleyes::eek:

    Hmmm, I don't know about that. I think the Fonzi Files are here:

    http://forums.audioholics.com/forums/memberlist.php?&order=DESC&sort=reputation&pp=30

    I just found out about this not too long ago and then immediately
    stopped giving any rep points to Jamie. :D

    He passed me once. If he passes me again I'm giving him red rep. :eek:

    Epic Fail.

    Question...

    If you delete all the legit post, won't they have to start over again?
