    So I recently found out I'm not allowed to post in the introduction section seeing as how I have less then 100 posts. Are there any other sections like this? I tried searching posting rules in an attempt to answer this question by myself. I did not see it in the sticky post entitled "Board Rules and Posting Guidelines" so if anyone could tell me the name of the post or where to find it that tells me which sections I am and am not allowed to post in, I would be very grateful.

    Say what? I know of no such rule, though it's probably a good idea.

    The generally accepted (and probably unofficial) rule seems to be: Noobs don't post in other noobs introduction threads.

    http://www.google.com/search?q=site...+not+post+in+other+noobs+introduction+threads

    Exceptions have been made when the noob-in-question has something of worth to add to the thread.

    The 100-post and 6-month figures bandied about for the end-of-noob status seem pretty arbitrary... I'd ignore them unless I heard otherwise.

    I...wow. The laptop i'm using belongs to a childrens rehab center. I ahppen to be staying there, but that's a story for another time. Anyway the laptop wouldn't let me access the page due to the fact it had too many banned or questionable words. It's score was 172, the highest I've found on this web site.

    The point is to become integrated into DLP's community first before welcoming or flaming others out of it. There's no rule against it, but a newbie with 10 posts welcoming another will be looked down upon by much of the community.

    Oh. Alright, the only reason I posted there was because I knew a couple of star gate/harry potter crossovers and the OP said he liked star gate cross overs. So I decided to share those with him, and when i found another I shared that one too.

    As yak has correctly pointed out, exceptions can be made. Welcoming someone to a community oneself is not part of is not what we want.

    Contributing something of value is pretty much always accepted.
