Like the others said, you don't need to post once a month,
. . . . you just have to login.
If you can't do that, I don't know what to say.
And herein lies the issue that has obviously puzzled users.
Simply "log-in" is the answer, but the question is a bit more involved.
Logging in to cPanel
is different than logging in to the forum
, which is completely different than posting
which is also different than logging into the account portal
And to reiterate the confusion, the title of this very thread is. . .
"Posting in forum once a month"
As for the reason for this log-in rule (which seems to get asked every few posts), I'll guess it's a multi-part answer; advertisers & revenue, and identifying stagnant accounts.
IMHO, x10hosting provides an outstanding hosting service for free. Even their pay service is incredibly cheap.
The account portal log-in rule is very reasonable even if it is a tad confusing.
So... Thank You x10hosting for a great service and a surprisingly entertaining forum.
