Gone are the days of needing 25 posts and an account for 10 days before you could share links and images in a post.
We're trialing a lowered restriction for new users, which means just 5 posts and an account that's 24 hours old are required to be able to share the latest cute, funny, etc. pic that you've stumbled across. And it's the same for links, which means new users can get involved in the Bargain Alerts competition much quicker than they would have been able to previously.
This is an experiment and something that we'll be keeping an eye on. If it works well, we'll continue with it, but we can adjust or roll it back if required.
