And thank you for answering my question, mircoscopic. I figured it may have been that, but I wasn't exactly sure because it actually doesn't really say anywhere here in the Introductions and Welcome forum that posting in here won't add to your post count. So yeah, was just a little confused about it.

I'm a fellow australian myself and couldn't think of anywhere in the world I'd rather live!

All forums will increase your credits count, except for the ones like Life Talk, The Lobby etc. which are clearly marked with NO POST COUNT.

Anyway, I have a small question. In which forums do you get hosting credit for posting? Ever since I have started to post around, I have noticed that I only got hosting credits for one of my posts. And yeah, I tried looking for the answer to this question everywhere, but I couldn't find it, so I thought I might just ask.

Anyway - as long as your posts are written by yourself with decent content and no vulgar language, all will be fine. Very soon you'll find yourself entirely absorbed into this community.
Also while you're here - just as a footnote - a quick glimpse at the basic rules:
[tab][/tab]At Astahost Forums, if you make posts that contain material directly copied from other sites, you're supposed to do the following:
Failure to do so it considered Plagiarism - which, on our forums, is synonymous with SPAMMING.
- Make sure the entire copied part is put between QUOTE tags
- Make sure that at the end of the quoted block, the originating web-page is mentioned in such a manner that a single click will lead to the originating article
- Include the original author's name is applicable.
For every such SPAM you receive a warning.
5 warnings lead to a permanent ban.
Also, when such posts are found, all the credits you gained for it are entirely deducted.
Moreover, even if you follow the above-mentioned rules, and yet, your whole post consists of simply a huge QUOTE-d block with source citation, but no authentic material on your part, it is still considered as SPAM and will be dealt with in the same manner.

And I have a feeling this place is going to help me be more talkative. Of course, I am here for the hosting, but its probably going to take me sometime to get it because I have always sort of been on the quiet side all my life. That is why I am looking forward to getting into this place. Not only will I get hosting, but it will sort of force me to be more talkative. I have been wanting the practice for years now.
And you all seem so nice, which is also another bonus.
