I have over 12,000 posts and can't post in the news. I believe that is for staff only.
We have a sub-forum for news on new tech and such.
Here

Please don't bump your topics after only a few hours... Most of us have other things going on in our lives, and can't instantly help out everybody. We ask that you wait 24hours until bumping.

Ok let me make this clear. Bumping topics and constantly double posting is only a quick route to get yourself into trouble. Read the rules, I know it is stated in there about using the Edit Button, cause I personally put it in there. As well as it being part of the Welcome Thread.

It is stated right under the Spamming aspect. You wonder why you cant get access to the OT area, or couldn't, cause of your post count. It can also be removed for post padding as well. Where you make a number of posts just to up your count to get access to the areas. Like posting BUMP a hour later cause no one was online to answer your question instantly.

Please read and follow the rules.
