It should not be possible to register a new account and immediately post to Typophile. That’s how spammers (and students who want us to do their homework for them) get in.
Take a page from MetaFilter yet again:
- You have to pay a lifetime fee of $5 when you register. There are no other fees and the fee cannot be refunded.
- You have to wait a week after registration is complete (i.e., after Typophile receives your $5) to post a new topic.
- You may, however, post a comment in a forum (e.g., an answer to a question) immediately after registration is complete.
