Question About Welcome Message?

When in doubt create a place holder thread and report your OWN post to ask moderators to help out.

This is in the welcome message. Could someone please clarify the meaning of this statement?

I may be wrong, but I believe that this was born from a time when new members could make posts, but attachments/links wouldn’t be approved until they reached a particular post count (10?). I don’t think this is the case any longer (all posts by new members are sent to the moderation queue), so that line may no longer be necessary.
