+1 for the above comment--your post is far too relevant to be allowed in Off Topic.
But seriously, we do have an <Introduce yourself to our forum members!> thread in Off Topic, you don't need to start a whole new thread to introduce yourself--starting an unnecessary new thread bumps every other thread down a space, and you can imagine how clogged we'd get if everybody felt they needed their own thread to say "Hi, it's me!"
Also you should read <LocostUSA PUBLIC FORUM Guide lines....> in Announcements, and while you're there, read <PLEASE READ: The value of good titles on LocostUSA.com>. "New kid on the block" doesn't tell us much.
> I got banned from Locost NA for making too many off-topic posts...
We have the advantage of an Off Topic forum, and LocostNA has all its posts blended together, so I can see why...
> although I felt they were interesting and some related to the build
...since everybody thinks their OT posts are interesting, LocostNA needs to keep everybody on track. They've got 58,000 messages and no indexing; give 'em a break.
I'm just a member here, I'm not the Posting Police, so put an imaginary IMO in my advice, but I think, 1pineapple, you should...
A) Put an informative introduction in <Introduce yourself to our forum members!>, or at least put some basics in your profile (like where you're located).
B) Start a build log in <Build Logs>
And C, do stay on topic in the non-Off-Topic forums; Locost_North_America did ask nice before they banned you.
