That's pretty common policy in web fora to help discourage spambots of both the silicon- and carbon-based varieties.

Although I have been reading linuxquestions for years now, the truth is that I haven't been very active.
But I would like to at least see the nominees, ...hence this very first post of mine.

You need a single post for a variety of reasons, mostly related to spam prevention and to ensure all votes are legitimate / not part of a ballot stuffing attempt.

Out of curiosity, do you find the requirement to make a single post (which can be anywhere in LQ, including a single comment in one of the MCA polls) to be an onerous one?

Now that you have a post you should be able to vote as in a regular poll.

onerous?! not quite! lots of uninteresting posts tough , since everybody should post something just for the sake of posting! isn't username, and password and subscription confirmation and banning and others enough antispam methods! I confess that I'm not a very active member of LQ forum (at least not yet) , but every year I look forward for the great moment of the "Members Choice Awards" nominees and of course the results, and this year I'm not allow to vote! not quite pleasant, it's a little annoying to be "forced" to to something.


On the other hand It's been long since I join the LQ and no post , shame on me. You're doing a fine job with the LQ! keep on going!

It only takes one post, so you're good now! The logical place to post if you have nothing to say/ask: Member Intro
