You can't "just get that". The post count is there to stop people abusing the downloads.

She means people signing up to just download the manga scans and then - possibly - posting them on other sites. We're a forum after all, so chatting to other members is kinda how it works.

Recently, we have noticed people taking others' translations without their permission and posting to their own sites, so it's to try slowing that down :tfw_bella1: I know it can be a hassle for to-be fans who don't want to talk, but it's just a layer of protection for the translators' efforts.

Thank you Rusty and Dragon :)

Nagareboshi54 I will PM you. I see you've been trying to spam in areas that by design don't increase your post count, please stop!

I have no doubts about that! But unfortunately the blanket restriction is necessary.

I've sent you a PM, so I'm locking this topic now. If you have any questions please reply to me through there.
