Perhaps spending the 2PM limit to send your thoughts to an ADMIN/MOD might be more constructive than "complaining" as you state it in on a public board?
So just basically saying that it works for you and other long term or members with sufficient posts doesn't really add anything to the discussion. On the contrary I believe that it almost comes across as arrogant and non-inclusive. Isn't the point of a forum for a bunch of people with similar interests to gather in a spirit of comraderie? Just saying :P......
^ yes exactyly that. that is the whole point. POSTING in the forum to learn from each other and sharing experiences.
Do you think the long term members sit around PM'ing eachother all the time? No they POST too. Just like you are. I personally very rarely use PM unless I am trading and I think it has been made clear already the PURPOSE of the site is not for trading. It is for what we just mentioned.
I don't think anyone is trying to be arrogant or non-inclusive. Just by the fact that someone is POSTING their experiences and answering questions to begin with means they are including Lurkers, Noobs, and experienced users alike now doesn't it?
