Rules changed:

As of now posts made in introductions and referal boards will add to post count

the downline builder and blog board are very prone to spammers, they will remain as they are now, 5 post minimum to start a topic. 5 posts is very easy to reach and a lot less than required on most forums

referal board rules updated:
as a test the 1 thread per topic starter has been removed.
