    I mean I've read the rules about at least 15 posts and everything, but I notice I have more than that and can't even post my wanted list? The button for starting a new thread isn't even at the bottom of the page, normal? I'm a Fresh Meat here, please do excuse my ignorance on the issue. :oops:

    No problem at all, Melody. In fact the 'problem' you are having is not related to your post count, apologies for any confusion. Actually you are just interpreting it a bit different/it is a quirk of the way the board is set up. In order to post a new topic in either the Wanted section or the For Sale one for that matter, you actually need to click through to one of those individual topics. Then you will see the 'New Topic' button as per normal. Actually, I think most people don't even realise sometimes that there is a larger branch called Market Place, that you can actually open as a sub-forum on its own, as most just navigate right to the respective topic (which you can see additionally below the 'Active Topic' block if you do click through to the general section). In fact this is true for all grouped areas of the board, I just don't think they are used that often in the fashion you are thinking - i.e. clicking through on the header - it is more just for a board breakdown, though of course that works as well. From the main page of the forum, clicking through any subsection will bring you right to the list of active topics, from where you can also post if you wish.

    Anyways, honest and simple question - but one it is good to ask. Hope this helps.

    Actually it's simpler than that - I had to up the required posts to be 25 in order to enforce the post requirement for the Skullbrain X lotteries. So for now, you actually need 25 posts before you can start new threads in those sections.

    :oops: Oops, well I guess I answered a different question then. Well maybe someone in the future might take something away from it. Thanks for the clarification James, and sorry for the mix up. Extra apologies to Melody, as it was me who misread the issue you were having.

    And, for what it is worth, I don't think 25 posts is really a stretch either to be able to enter board exclusive lotteries and whatnot.
