Lightbulb Rules Need to be changed

Hi,

I just joined this forum coz i was about to buy a new car for my dad. I wanted to compare 2 cars i have in my list. But when i tried to access the "Which Car" forum it said you dont have priveledges Read rules.

When i read rules i came to know i should have 50 posts. Man i have to post 50 posts to this forum then what is the use of this forum. I mean why will people will come to this forum ??? just to have chit chat... or some thing.

I think rules should be changed.

Thank you.

We want people who hang around with us for longer than one What Car? question, which is why we have the rules what we have. Hang around, this place will grow on you too. And if you look around long enough, you will realise that your questions have probably already been answered elsewhere.

Cheers and welcome to Team-BHP.

We wish for members to become very familiar with the board, before they start posting in the "What Car" and "Marketplace" sections. I can show you 10 links that were posted within 10 days of each other with the title of "What 5 lac car should be buy?"

Please perform a search for the two cars that you are contemplating a purchase on. If its not already there, feel free to open a topic and the required action will be taken.

Welcome aboard

GTO

ey abhibh,
welcome aboard and enjoy your stay.
This is a forum where we discuss everything automotive and in a wierd sort of way, the 50 post rule does make sense.
Hope to see you around.

Welcome onboard Abhi.

Indeed thts exactly the sentiment that I felt when I wanted to post and respond...
However, once you realise the rules of the game, you get accustomed to it.

Folks, ( me donning the robe of devils advocate ) : - The best way to notch up the count is to welcome each and every person who posts an intro... no-ones done that so we are rather safe... just a thought that i am sharing
