Be careful about that, this is from our rules

11) 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.
For a full explanation as to why these measures are in place please refer to this topic started by our Administrator, Trotter.
