To me, one-liner post will never get past my approval.


So on coming 1 April, I will move all member with only ONE post to the newly registered member list and these members will have to re-look into their wants/needs to stay on the forum.

All member with less than 3 posts had been moved to Newly Registered Member.
All Newly Registered Members are required to fulfil the minimum THREE(3) posts in the Member Intro Section to gain access to the rest of the forum.


In the process, I had also removed member that done ZERO (0) post and had not been inactive for a long period of time.
