    Just to keep the Forum Rules in mind:
    and
    I am not a moderator or anything, so I generally can't judge what is an acceptable "post" or not. Having checked through your posts I would say that most of them are qualified to be what I recognize as a post, but some (especially the "spam", no offence, in your New Member-thread) does seem more like an attempt to breach the 20 post limit than anything else.

    My advice is to keep calm, wait and continue posting till the 14 days have passed, and then continue to keep calm, wait and post. As Cogito wrote in the Rules-thread, you should "not message the moderators on the fourteenth day asking when you will be able to post - any such messages will be silently ignored."

    Edit: I've read part of your reviews, and I think you needn't be really that harsh, alright? We're here to help each other getting better at writing, not to scare every aspiring author away :).

    Now don't get me altogether wrong. What you have written is indeed good advice, in some cases better than what I would have written.

    A post is what you are reading right here. An individual messages posted within a thread.

    Komposten has given you the correct rules:

    • 2 weeks of membership
    • 20 posts anywhere in the forum
    • 2 or more constructive critiques of items already in the Workshop.
    You will find the rest of the forum rules here.

    We're a small neighborly community, not a giant anonymous forum. We prize participation :)

    I normally 'rattle' on more than that when looking for info. I love different opinions; however, I may not be so genteel at times. i will probably learn more here 'cos you are all so nice....so far.

    How can you know if you've done two or more constructive critiques? Is that decided by the mods?

    Yes. When a member makes their first post in the Workshop, we check to see that their numbers are in check, we look for your two critiques, ensure that they are of substance and that a genuine effort was put into the critique.

    Also, constructive critique is a link in Wrey's earlier post, to an explanation of what constructive critique is and is not.
