    Hello everyone,
    I am a Newbie here at BHW so sorry for the beginner questions.
    The reason I am asking this question is that I find I can't post a lot of things in this forum. Whenever I try to post something, it gets censored. How did everyone turn from a Newbie to a veteran is one can't post anything?

    The thing I find very frustrating is that I can't send PM to anyone. In one post, I offered to tell people how to get Internet Business Promoter if they PMed me. Many people did and I find that I can't reply to the PMs and tell them how.

    I also want to share some software with the BHW community but WizGizmo told me that I can't post links until my post count is over 50. The problem is I can't post any posts because they get blocked!

    Can someone tell me how they raised their post count? I tried making many posts but that just decreased my post count somehow. :(

    Cool ==>:drinking8

    Well, how did you post this question if you can't post?

    They put these limits in so that you become an "active" member and a new person can't just join and start bombing everyone with "offers" and "pm"s. The best advice is to "do your time" (join in on some of the threads), show you can ad value. Fifty posts does not take that long.

    It's true what blackhatdavid said. Start asking questions, reading threads, and even starting threads if you have questions that aren't here. You won't become a "trusted member" overnight because it does take some time, but eventually you'll get there.

    Whatever you do don't go the downloads section and make a post on every share saying "Thanks" because that post won't get counted. There's a thanks button for that :D

    also the fact that you are suggesting another blackhat site to get IBP will not help :)

    Darn! That is exactly what I tried to do. I guess that's why my post count actually decreased!

    go to the black hat forum and making money forums and start posting. Ask questions, answer questions, be as helpful as possible. You can easily make 20 posts in a day. Just make sure the add something to the forum. Then your post count will increase and you can do more things.

    P.S. forums like lounge, downloads, and introductions dont increase post count and watch out for just saying "thanks" because you could get banned.

    P.S.S you may think that it's a lot of work just to be a regular member but it's worth it for all the great stuff on this forum

    I didn't know that the downloads forum doesn't count towards your post count. That is the only forum I browse really.
