Not sure when it started, but I started in Feb 2013 and it was a rule then! I think it had to do with people "spamming" the site by signing up and then posting ads or hijacking threads. So now you have to stick around and participate for awhile before they let you get a ticker, receive Private Messages, etc.

The other upside is it encourages new people to post so the board stays interactive and so they get involved right away and see how beneficial community support can be for weight loss!
