The 30/30 rule
The 30/30 rule
As we’ve been receiving a lot of reports on this rule lately, we thought it was a good idea to create a friendly reminder for everyone about what the 30/30 rule is.

Here’s the rule for you to read:
Rules Wrote:30/30
In addition to the advertising rule, new members must make 30 posts and be a member for 30 days before they are allowed to post external content, such as links, images, or videos. This is to ensure that advertising is not the sole purpose for the member joining the forums. Any posts where the sole intention is to link to external content may be removed by staff, and will not count towards the 30 posts requirement. Once the 30/30 requirements have been met, members are free to post external content, however the advertising rule will still apply.

An exception to the 30/30 requirements is when external content is used within a discussion or with the intention of discussion. For example, a member who has not yet met the 30/30 requirements is allowed to post external content if they are using it as evidence in a discussion, or if it is relevant to the ongoing discussion.

When considering making a report about the 30/30 rule, please read the second paragraph of this rule and ask yourself if the post in question might actually fall within the exception to the rule.

Thank you everyone!

RE: The 30/30 rule
TL: DR because it's 2018:
New members are only prohibited from sharing links when they have nothing to do with the conversation they are either trying to start or are participating in. If the video or link is clearly self-promoting/advertising or has nothing to do with the conversation/thread, please report that post.
"There remain four irreducible objections to religious faith: that it wholly misrepresents the origins of man and the cosmos, that because of this original error it manages to combine the maximum servility with the maximum of solipsism, that it is both the result and the cause of dangerous sexual repression, and that it is ultimately grounded on wish-thinking." ~Christopher Hitchens, god is not Great
