    Basically, it's what you said in your question - don't spam and you'll be fine.

    The 15 post cap is there for a good reason. Build your posts up naturally by giving useful input and getting involved with threads that you can add value to.

    You shouldn't be looking to get to 15 posts asap, useless posts aren't very well liked here.

    And this 15 post cap is for starting new thread or giving in comment post? I really don't get it well

    posts in the lounge doesn't count and there are other sections too: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/faq.php?faq=vb3_board_faq#faq_postcount

    best and fastest way? try to help people (in your own area of expertise if there's any) or just make valid posts, add your input to a convo in about any section where posts count
    not sure if i got this question, you already started this thread, but you have less posts than 15, one would think that would be an answer :)

    The 15 post rule means that you have to post 15 times before you can pm. A post is adding to a current thread that's been made by someone else but starting threads does count towards it.

    You have three posts already. If you specialise in any particular form of internet marketing then find the relevant section and see if there's any recent threads that you can help with.

    Ignore the 15 post rule. That sounds bad but what I mean is just contribute, don't post useless stuff, ask questions if you do not know the answers and contribute and you will get to the 15 post count.

    On the other hand, if you are getting PMs so early in the game because of this post you'll get banned pretty quickly:

    People have explained the rules and they are there for a reason. If you do not like them, you do not have to be here.
