XDA’s 10 Post Rule

On XDA, our main focus is and always will be to foster open development for our mobile devices. With that in mind, the development sub-sections found for every device on XDA are where all of the development activity happens: it’s where developers post ROMs, radios, and root instructions. It’s also where XDA members can provide constructive feedback to the developers that generously provide their work, for free, to everyone.

Early last year, we put in place what we call the “10 Post Rule” in an effort to protect the development forums on XDA. We were finding that many new users would mistakenly post questions and other unrelated matters in the development forums, and we needed a way to prevent that. The 10 Post Rule requires new members to make 10 posts in other sections before they can make posts in development forums. But even with fewer than 10 posts, any member can still view all development forums on XDA.

We’re happy to report that the 10 Post Rule has had a huge impact on keeping the development forums clean and on-topic. But we want to go a step further. All logged in members that have fewer than 10 posts will now see an announcement at the top of every page that explains why we have the 10 Post Rule, and how to quickly get above the 10 post threshold to have full post capability. It emphasizes that new members can do their part by contributing knowledge or asking/answering questions for their first 10 posts, as opposed to making ten quick-and-easy posts that provide little value to other members.

The Mods and Admins thank you for your cooperation with this rule, and hope that you understand that it’s in place for the betterment of the XDA community.

If you want more information about this, please read 12aon’s thread about more ways to get to 10 posts.

Pinsy Brings Social Sketching To Your Watch & Phone

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
