How to increase post count WITHOUT spamming!
As a member who was once new, I can say the 500 post guideline for Advanced+ membership and 1000 post guideline for Private membership can seem quite scary. How could anyone ever post so much? However I can assure you it is actually not that hard, and that there are a few tricks you can use to increase post count WITHOUT spamming! Without further ado, let's get to it!
As you may know, Neocodex has an amazing item database! While items worth 99k and less are automatically priced by the database, anything worth 100k and up has to be priced manually. However, only members with 500 or more posts can go in and change the price, but do not fret! Members with less than 500 posts can post in the thread linked above to list out items and prices, and a member with enough posts will update those prices for you! Every time you post in that thread, you get more post count and Neocodex's item database gets more updated. Everyone wins
Debates are a great way to explore issues and to understand many different and contrasting viewpoints. The nice thing is that being involved in a debate where people disagree usually results in more posts as people articulate their stances. However, this one is a bit dangerous, be sure to debate carefully and fully think through arguments lest you lose respect.
Being part of a contest or giveaway is a great way to increase post count as well as being involved in the community. Whether you host a giveaway or enter a competition, you are given opportunities to organize and display your talents through posts! An additional benefit of a member heavily involved in contests and giveaways is that it looks real good when Advanced+ members evaluate nominations.
