Why can't I create a new thread? (A.K.A. Restrictions for Creating Threads)

In an effort to combat spam, new users are not permitted to create new threads until they have posted eight times. This gives administrators a chance to spot suspicious users before they cause any problems.

This restriction does not apply to topics in the "For The Promotion Of PC Game-Making Projects And Things Like That" subforum.
