    Hi, I'm new to this forum and want to work my way up to 100 posts to be eligible for Jr. VIP. What are some non-toxic, beneficial ways to help out the community and increase my post count at the same time? Some things that I've thought of so far are:

    1. Writing guides.
    2. Answering questions.
    3. Contributing productively to discussions.

    Are the aforementioned methods good ways of raising post count? Are there any others that you can think of? Any to stay away from that aren't obvious?

    Just be an active member of the community by having genuine discussions with other members (discuss methods, expand existing methods, and the list goes on).

    You've got plenty of time, bud. You need 60 days on the forum as well.

    Spark discussion, share quality information, etc. And note that posts in the Lounge and a few other sections do not count towards total post count. Otherwise I'd be looking at 1,500 or so posts instead of >500.

    Also keep in mind that thanks count matters. When I see someone with several hundred posts and just a handful of thanks (tunescool) I know that its a member who just spams and asks questions and doesn't contribute to the forum.

    If you make two posts per day, you'll reach 100 before the 60 days are up, so you don't need to be doing anything that special really. Just be active and helpful and try to provide valuable information to the threads that you have some knowledge about. Just make sure you don't go overboard with starting threads. Guides are nice as long as they are not repeating something really basic that is already mentioned on the forum a lot - but if you have some unique insight about your area of expertise, by all means share it. It will make a you a more respectable member, not just pump a number up so you are eligible for something.

    I'm failing to see the question here. You've already answered yourself by suggesting you contribute productively to discussions. Obviously not every post requires an in-depth knowledge of the subject being discussed. A surprising amount of threads can be answered with a simple Google search, e.g: "How can I make my Wordpress site more secure?".
