There is that, as nobody likes a one post wonder (someone who joins, post one item of work, and never comes back, even if they get feedback). It also stops any spambots/spammer from flooding the forum with ads/spam as they cannot start threads in most of the forum at the beginning.

Admittedly here we now get the six post wonder, but they are rare and far between, as new members who want to stick around will do so regardless and those that would be one post wonders don’t bother.

A nice side effect, from our point of view, of the five post rule is that it helps new members to get to know the forum a bit better and get their bearings.
