When I joined CR I wanted to create a new forum post but when I tried a warning box appeared stating that I needed to have 400 CR points before I could create a new post.

I now have 400 points so I tried again to create a new post only for the warning box to state that I now needed 500 points to create a post.

Can I assume that every time I reach the required amount of CR points the goal post will be moved?

That's weird it would have said 400 in an actual dialog box... It's always been 500 as long as I've been here. It used to be that for everyone, but in the past year or less, it's zero now for subscribers, and you supposedly can start posts in the Help forums without that minimum, now, too.

I think you're misremembering. It's always been 500 as long as I can remember. (Posting in the Help section is an exception.)

As asharaka says, there does seem to have been a change so that premium members don't need a minimum number of points.

You're almost there though! Go take some polls and find a few threads of interest to post in (on-topic please!) and you'll have your 500 points before too long.
