    Is the requirement for noobs to be able to PM people 10 posts (creating a thread like this) or 10 comments (aka replies)? Sorry if I am confusing stuff, I am a noob to GBATemp and don't use non-Reddit forums. Thanks!

    You just need 10 posts, whether it's commenting on an existing thread or creating a new thread

    As long as you're not trolling or anything I think it'll be fine. Also just curious why are you trying to PM now?

    Generally it's seen as more acceptable to do so in the introductions section, unless you're actually generating useful discussion in threads you're commenting in

    Long story short when I registered I said I was 38 but I'm a lot younger than 38. I need to PM an Admin to fix my b-day.

    But posts don't count in the introductions section right?

    I say just contribute to ongoing discussions with good posts and you will get rid of the limitations in no time.

    Oh good job lol

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Don't they? It'd be kind of stupid if they didn't, I always thought the only section they don't count is the EoF

    Not sure, I just thought I read somewhere that they don't count. Could be wrong though.

    Hm. You were right, interesting. Either way, you have a welcome thread there now @Hippoman lol

    @Costello is there a good reason that introduction posts don't count towards the post counter? I'd think that would be a good and non-spammy way to get used to the forum and build up towards PM capability

    EoF is the Edge of the Forum. It's basically where all the shitposts go

    A lawless region that I don't think you're ready for. You really have to try to get there, there aren't any immediate links. Get used to the rest of the site first before you try to mess around with the Edge of the Forum

    Wow ok. Sounds like basically all of Reddit lol. Thanks everyone for welcoming me into the community!
    I do have to fix my PFP and go to bed soon though. Also, if any of you see me online later: it isn't that I lied to you, it's just that I failed.
