you act like there aren't thousands upon thousands of message boards that require a certain number of posts prior to being able to start your own thread.
Yes, and they suck for it.
Many have a low post count requirement (like 25 posts)
If you set any kinda of post count limitations, people will just spam the board with worthless posts to unlock privileges.
cost/benefit analysis of this idea is overall detrimental to board quality IMO.

I think only allowing threads to be started in the Help Board prior to reaching some milestone would be a good idea. Requiring a user to have 10 posts in the Help Board would at least force them to see the Help Board and might keep some of the dumb questions over here.
They should make a noob board
what about requiring the first 10 posts to occur on the Help Board? I've seen this on other boards.
