Your question is a frequent one, so we have a FAQ page devoted to answering it.
First shalt thou pull out the Holy Keyboard. Then shalt thou post to the count of thirty, no more, no less. Thirty shall be the number of posts thou shalt make, and the number of the posting shall be thirty. Thirty one shalt thou not post, neither post thou twenty nine, excepting that thou then proceed to thirty. Thirty two is right out. Once the number thirty, being the thirtieth number, be reached, then rip out thy Holy keyboard, with Lord's grace, thou shall be a Ranch hand.
