Username: camiller, same as here! I have > 5 posts already. Or does it need to be five posts since the start of this promo?

Edit: Oops, either the rules were updated (OP was updated 4 min after my post) or I missed it the first time but I see now that only posts after yesterday count. I don't think I'll have a problem getting to five though.

Edit Again: OK, I have my five substantive posts over there (and one not so substantive) after the 14th of Nov, as well as three referrals!
