When a new member joins Ant Hill World, they are placed into the Infertile Egg rank status. This means that many parts of the forum are now hidden to them, so they cannot read what is there or post on those hidden boards.
Once they make their first post however, their rank goes up to Ant Egg and they can then see more of the forum and post on boards otherwise previously hidden from their view. Members need to make 7 posts to become an Ant Larvae, when they can then see the ant selling area and buy and sell ants.
Please Note} It is against the rules of this forum to post ant sales, or other types of sales related to ants, before you have gained the rank of Ant larvae; and all such sales must be posted on the sales or swaps boards. Failure to comply or spamming of posts to sell ants will place your membership in jeopardy of deletion; and all your spam posts will be deleted, which means you could end up back down to the rank of a none poster.
Infertile Egg status also means your privileges are greatly restricted as a member, so to increase your ranking and the possibility of being placed into a special group, you do need to post as much as you can.
