    Also, keep in mind, the functionality that you are unlocking is not stuff we want a newbie to do ... such as contribute editorial, etc. It's done to save the moderation team from extra work. Read More

Daniweb isn't the only site that follows that policy. Many sites follow it and I am in favor of it. Besides, 5 posts, 5 days of membership, and 15 rep points is not that hard to earn.

I think it's will be easy all I have to do is make 15 post it's ok because I'm not the only one that may need help so If I can help someone else why not.

IIRC, it's 5 posts + 5 days or 15 reputation points. So you can unlock functionality with the default rep allocation, or you can unlock it sooner by earning rep.

I don't mind earning post. you have to be cautious these days people are always out to gt thing underhandly no matter who it hurts. I'm good with the policy it protect you and the ones that using your site.

Not really, it just saves us extra work. Daniweb's moderation team is easily the best I've ever seen, and I have no doubt we'd snuff out unsavory types in short order with or without this feature. But with the feature, it gives mods breathing room to participate as regular members instead of always doing moderation work.
