Please don't. We prefer that you post for a specific reason and may delete posts that don't contribute in any way. We have plenty of threads that you are can join in. Welcome another newcomer here, tell us about yourself in your own thread, or answer a question on the Theme Parks Board, or post a budget tip on that board.

Hey there everyone! Just wanted to break the ice in here. I am a wife and mama to 2 gorgeous and awesome kiddos. We are all HUGE Disney fans since birth... I have conditioned my kids to love Disney from day one just as my parents did for me We are only a couple hours from WDW so we head there as much as we can.
I wanted to join in on some Disney talk and also we are planning a cruise later this year so I need LOADS of input on that. Never been on DCL before and kind of clueless there. Hope to learn lots here.

Ok I feel silly!! I answered my own question thanks anyway.

On another note I would like to begin looking into becoming a DVC memeber. However I want to rent points to begin ths process.

I was told to come to the dis boards to find renters, but I am having a bit of trouble finding what I am looking for. Any advice?

You need to complete your registration first. Please see the thread at the top of this forum (probably right above or below this one) "Not fully registered. . ." for instructions. You won't be able to see our DVC Rent boards until you complete this process.

Hello, congratulations on your first post. I understand you need to make ten of them to reply via email to a 'post-er'. This is my third, and I hope to get to ten in a few minutes so that I can reply to a post, hoping to get some information. So I'm looking for people who I hope will not be offended if I post to them. Have a good day.

I noted your reply to one of my fellow newbies and see that you are a moderator. Please be aware of the following frustration that I am dealing with right now. I am planning to vacation with a large group in July, and someone on one of these boards insinuated that our potential rental agent is a bad person to deal with. I posted a note asking for information, and the lady has not answered it after one day. So I wanted to email her (tastefully - please believe me) to request information about what caution we need to take. And when I tried to do that, I got a popup message saying that I can't send emails until I have sent at least 10 posts. So, although we're told that we shouldn't make trivial posts, we're penalized for not making posts.

I hope you understand my frustration - thanks,

Our posting rules help prevent our members from being inundated with spam. The PM system is for the benefit of our contributing members. There are plenty of threads on our forums that you can pop into and contribute something to the conversation, without having to post nonsense just to increase your post count. On this board alone you can offer a to all of our newcomers from the last few days and you would have more than 10 posts.

Hi Everyone! I was a member back in '07 when I discovered the boards while planning our first family trip. My email addy has changed a few times since, so I re-registered I am excited to be back and have already found tons of useful info.
Dh & I are surprising our kids with another trip back this May, as our younger 2 were babies the first time and don't remember being there. We will be staying at POP
