    Well see the idea is that if you have to make 5 posts you'll actually critique some of other people's work instead of just being a selfish a-hole who only wants to post his/her own stuff, get critiques, and take off.

    This, but in a bit of a sugar-coated form

    There are a few reasons why you need to meet a posting requirement before you can post links. The greatest reason is spam. This 5 post rule strongly discourage spammers. They need to be discouraged constantly, or they'd run all over the forums with their rolex watches, handbags, fake passports, and viagra.

    Also, joining a community for the sole purpose of posting a link, be it a link to the blue pills or a link to a piece of writing, is spam.

    Thanks guys for your views and advice. I feel like home already
    Correct, I didn't read much of what's been posted here before I posted myself, so I assumed.
    True, the link I posted was to a whole chapter, too big all right. One's enthusiasm about one's writing is good for self motivation primarily.
    I prefer to make the mistake and assume again that prior to being deleted, the link I posted was not looked at.
    One of these days I will select a 1000 words chunk and post it again.

    Thanks again,
    C.
