From the general forum rules (http://www.techist.com/forums/f33/an...m-rules.html):

Quote:
12) New Members have certain requirements that must be met before access is granted to certain features, namely Signatures, PM (Personal Message) System, B/S/T (Buy/Trade/Sell) Forums, and the OT (Off-Topic) Forums. The requirements are as follows.
  • 40 good posts to get a signature. Posting things like "LOL" or "That is some good information" will get you noticed real fast and get your signature use blocked before you even get it. A couple posts like this are fine, but 40 posts just so you can put up a link to your site will not be allowed.
  • 40 posts to gain access to the PM (Personal Messenger) System.
  • 40 posts to gain access to the Off Topic forum.
  • 100 good posts to reach the B/S/T Area.

Quote:
<b>Regarding avatars, signatures, and special areas:</b><br/><br />
Forum privileges have been set up on usergroups. These usergroups allow for different forum privileges to be earned as members participate in the community, and thus are based on the number of posts made by members. Here is a current breakdown of those permissions and the usergroups for them:<br/><br/> <B>Registered Users </B>(0 -39 posts):
  • Only forum provided avatars
  • Profile pic, 100x100
  • Forum titles
<B>Registered Users Extra</B> (40 - 100 posts):
  • Same as above
  • Signature allowed, text only (according to the rules)
  • Custom avatars allowed, 80x80
  • Gain access to the PM (Personal Messenger) System
<B>Registered Users Extra BST</B> (100 - 249 posts):
  • Same as above
  • Custom avatars allowed, 100x100
  • Graphics and text sigs allowed, maximum size of 300 x 100 (accoding to the rules)
  • Buy/Sell/Trade forum available
<B>Registered Users Extra 2</B> (250+ posts):
  • Same as above
  • Custom avatars allowed, 120x120
  • Graphics and Text sigs allowed, maximum size of 600 x 150 (according to the rules)
  • Custom forum titles.
<br/>
Any and all of these privileges can be revoked, but will only be revoked if there is reasonable evidence that calls for it. Also, any member "spamming" their post count to try to gain access (such as a multitude of useless or very short "I agree" type posts) will quickly find either their posts deleted, their access revoked, or both.<br/><br/>

They are mainly common sense and courtesy with a little CYA thrown in here and there. They evolved over time and frame the community pretty well.
