@Xfiles2007 You just made a post and a thread, I assume You mean 5 useful posts. This is decided by admin/mods and I think it's if You share something to help another Member, or to start a thread about something You think might be of interest to the rest of the forum Members. Personally I think this is a useful question, thread and post.
Just for Your information once You get You 5 posts in, You can post almost anything and get away with it (it's all in the rules thread), DW really is an easy going forum.
This allows staff to remove any posts they think have been made just to get the members post count up... Which I have just done to 4 of yours. (Normally notification of posts being deleted would be sent via PM.)
For the record; posts of thanks, as well as questions like will this work on xyz, and is this file still available are examples of post clocking (especially on old threads).
