We have many choices when it comes to when a member may post links. We can make it as easy as X numbers of day or hours, but also by how many words - let's say I require you to have at least 300 words on a post before it is counted AS a post. Many options.
One is a lotto game and you may come in posting, in others it may be a 3 week punishment. These are just a few of the many. But hope you feel better speaking out on your theory on how we allow people to post links, if you'd like I could put you back out there and we'll try a different game
Thought about it, we can even set it up to allow a person's membership "activate or end" WHEN OIL PRICES hit a certain number value. Or how about only allowing membership when Stephan King writes a novel with the word "Pencil" somewhere in the title. That's when they can post photos... Silly.
You might say thanks for photo and links privilege - too many people take that too lightly, it is our first wall with in the forum environment that helps the members find trouble makers.
MANY PEOPLE have done it sooner than you - FYI. 10 is a pretty good number, but I know people who have done it in 3 posts. You're pretty average actually, may be that is why you see patterns which aren't there
Wasn't "A Beautiful Mind" a great movie
