    hi i'm not usually one to complain but.... will you people stop complaining about the 5 post rule....
    We all had to do it and now are reaping the rewards so if it is such a hassle don't do it and stop winging about it...
    Or on the other hand you could join in, make the posts and get to know the rest of us a bit better.....
    I mean really.... where else do people get together to pool their resources just to help each other out.
    I think it's great.

    Now that i have that out of my system let's get back to business.....Party Party Party....:cool:

    Who's complaining? I think it's very smart for them to do that.

    Well, I’m new here and don’t know why the 5 post rule came into effect anyway, so I guess I can’t complain. Although I really am curious to find out why...

    maybe so that people don't join just for downloading but to actually post. This is a forum.

    I think the reasoning is that if you put up a site with loads of midis on it you never really know how much your site is really being used. I myself used Johns site before it became a midi board but used it annonomously. Now we can all see the traffic on the site.
    Also this is not a midi distribution site but a community.

    I personally was one of those whingers at the start who moaned about the 5 post rule and slated John about but now I'm a moderator on the site and enjoy it immensley, (NOTE - Must delete that thread!!)

    Great to hear there are so many preople enjoying the boards.!!

    i think the five post rule is to stop ppl juss comming for the files and not for the community, which this site is.
    I just found this board and hopefully it will live up to the hype

    That is why the Mods are always on a look out for junk post and trash threads. If they find them they usally delete them on sight. but their are times their will be left just for certain reasons.

    Well that is another way to say it i guess. So basically all you have to do is do not junk post and then you wont be consitered a punk as PoB says.

    So rember that everyone excpecially junk posters who are viewing this thread right now.

    I'm actually surprised it's not a 10 or 20 post rule. That would make more sense. I wouldn't think most people looking to spam their way into downloads won't take the time to post twenty times. Five time is easy, but 20 times is boring! :)

    The five post rule

    I like the fact that you guys put a limit on the people who want to d/l stuff. This is a really good idea and I think that it will work, thank you for your services that you provide to me.

    I agree

    I think that for the amount of material you could theoretically accumulate from this site, that five posts is probably low for what they should require. It's really a great source of MIDI/knowledge.
