    How do I get my post count up so I can post ads?

    New to the forums? Want to post some ads in the Marketplace, but need to have a minimum number of posts? Here's a few suggestions to help you get your count up to the 5 post minimum:

    1. Say hello in Introductions, and welcome other people who have posted there.

    2. Tell us how you found the site in this thread

    3. Post a joke or something amusing in The Local Pub

    4. Join one of the scintillating conversations in the Expat Cafe

    5. Ask a question or give an answer in Information

    6. Share an event or find one to attend in Local Events

    7. Hop up on your soapbox and solve the world's problems in Current Affairs

    Unsure about how to post & reply to threads? Have a look here

    Please note that posts in the "Practice Area" do not count towards your total. If you are a long standing member who has only ever posted in the Marketplace area in the past and not on the forums, you may find that your post count is still at "0". Also, creating empty posts such as "Post 1", "Post 2", etc. for the express purpose of getting around the minimum isn't going to win you brownie points with the mod team and such posts will be deleted immediately - the whole purpose of this requirement is to encourage participation in the community as a prerequisite to using the site to sell & promote things.

    Thanx a lot!
    But I've got 6 posts already and they still don't give me the access for posting in 'jobs' section...

    I suspect you might be trying to post in the Marketplace preview area - this is a mirror of what is actually in the Marketplace, and is for reading only. Have a look HERE for more information.

    I have over 6 posts and can't use the English Lesson forum

    I have over 6 posts and can't use the English Lesson forum. It is just busy-work.

    You forced me to go RedTape because of your new redtape.

    I'll check with the admins.
    You have more than enough posts to place ads in this forum.It seems that you didn't have any problems posting ads for the last 3 months.Some of your old ads are still running

    I'll check with the admins.

    Its a legitimate measure to discourage spammers. Or spam rate has dropped by 100% since this was implemented so it would seem to be working. The forums are a free resource for everyone to use - the marketplace is a free resource for members of our community. A member of our community is defined as someone who has made at least five posts anywhere on the forums with the exception of the practice area.

    If you are having problems posting, please send me a PM and I will look into it for you.

    but on the other hand you now make users to place absolutely useless posts in order to get access to Lessons.

    I would be glad to send an sms and pay you a dollar or so to prove I am not a spammer then spending time placing useless posts :-(

    The real issue here is that the advertising here is a privelige for people who are members or who have a genuine interest in joining expat.ru as a participating member.

    Why on earth would a teacher working in Russia want to write useless posts in a forum of which is relevant to them. Also simply pasting a free add and disappearing doesn't work here, as you are not allowed to give personal telephone numbers and emails. You need to pop back here constantly and read your PM,s for answers on a regular basis.

    Free adverts are for participating individual members of expat.ru (I think )
