Hi there,

I'm well aware that posting in the Cider Press can have high risks for one's account. High risk, high reward and all that. I intend to be kind and compassionate in my (very infrequent) posts there.

But there is one I'd like to post in that, if I'm reading it correctly, says it requires 4 apples as a minimum. I have 8 and when I go to the forum, I don't appear to be able to reply to a post there.

My account has been bugged with respect to a couple of different things so I'm wondering if somehow it is bugged with respect to apple-features. I don't have luck with (or fondness for) Apple products, so perhaps this is the Universe having a go at me for kicks.

Just so I'm clear, where is it that I confirm the exact number of apples required to post?

Edit: Ah, I went to the desktop version rather than mobile and I see it very clearly indicates the number of apples you must have in the fine print at the top. I was looking at a 12-post and I only have 8. Righto, I will continue to be a GOOD BOY to get apples :P

It's called the cider press because it's a great way to chew up apples.

These are hot topic conversations and take a lot of staff time to maintain niceness in such heated conversations.  Any staff can give out apples for any reason, and any staff can give out apple cores for any reason.  They don't have to justify why.

If you are going to post in the cider press, it's a good idea to give a read and understand what we publish on permies and the kind of post that quietly vanishes away.  https://permies.com/t/34193/tnk/permies-works-links-threads

I have noticed that posts containing off-topic vegan activism tend to attract apple cores.
