Default Required posts for different subforums

I keep running into messages about not having enough posts to start threads or reply in other subforums. First, let me say that this is really annoying as a new user and considerably dampens my enthusiasm for the site if I have to make 30/50/75 posts in order to access the main parts of the forum. I get that spam is a major problem, but the current limits seem overkill. Plus, it hinders the organization of the forum if new users have to make all their posts in the Home Office section.

Second, is there a list of post requirements for different sections? It's possible I'm overestimating the problem since I've seen some inconsistent numbers reported in different threads, but that's hard for me to judge without a FAQ post or something.

Welcome to WF. On top of every page, in the menu bar, you will find the forum rules but I guess is you didn’t find what you were looking for. The be honest, I don’t know the number either but following another new member I came to five posts in the Introduction thread. Just ask some questions, give some replies and you should be fine.

Yes, this forum has been under attack by a spambot several times and that spat out so much (Chinese) spam it effectively rendered the forum useless for days on end. Of course this has nothing to do with you trying to get things going but there’s a reason for everything. After several attacks measures were taken and alas, they require some patience.

Hang in there and you’ll be fine!

Ok, five posts is achievable. I've actually already got that if you search for my username, but for some reason only 2 show up currently in the sidebar. I did check the rules and the FAQ but there's no specifics about the anti-spam measures.
