What's the thing about 50 posts?

New here. Can someone explain the significance of having 50 posts? Do I need to post a bunch so I can have my 50 too???

So *that's* how you get to 50, and here i am stressing about trying to add meaningful posts. I never thought about the whole 'i agree' thing..... Thanks!!! (no i wasn't being snarky)

Welcome ..

and I didn't know there was a number of posts rule!!!

I'm the resident airhead!!!

I feel vaccs are not of the devil, whopping cough has come back to Vermont with a vengence because people weren't vaccinating, the elderly generation, who weren't immunized back then, are now catching it in droves and dying. There is probably some cold hearts that think well they have to die of something but I personally think the benefits outweigh the costs and well..this'll probably be deleted now......

WElcome Gene!!!

I haven't heard about this and I don't see it on the stats websites, either. Any source?

And don't worry Aeriane, I'm sure your post won't disappear. (I'd complain if it did.)



(PS: I was supposedly vaccinated for this and got it a few years ago. It is much less severe for an adult than for an infant.)

There is a 50 posts/60 day rule to 'unlock' some of the boards. You can read some of the postings on the Question/Suggestions Forum for more info.

Really? There are boards that are "locked" to newbies? Weird. Reminds my of my dhs nintendo games. You have to play a certain amount of time and get through certain screens before you can unlock new stuff. LOL! OK, so I better post more... Are these special locked areas so great??? Gonna have to check out that info you mentioned.
