    Hola eddiemol
    Por lo que he podido deducir "postarme" significar poner un post, o sea, escribir en un foro. Lo que estoy haciendo ahora será cuando lo subo el foro un "post".
    Por lo tanto, alguien que dice
    quiero postarme
    está diciendo que quiere escribir en un foro.
    He encontrado esto
    saludines y ojalà encuentren alguien ke los adopte cya!! y gracias por postarme
    Como se puede apreciar, en este post se utiliza una ortografía, no sé como calificarla, poco ortodoxa

    Hello ediemol,

    What kane has just explained can be a possibility and I would say it has to be a misspelling and his suggestion is the right spelling.

    Another possibility but very remote could be
    quiero postrarme
    which means something like you want to be in bed forever, without being able to leave it. I don't really think that is what you're looking for but I wanted to contribute.

    Thanks so much Kane,Sandra T,but I actually think Sandra's meaning may be what I'm looking for.This sentence comes from a song that someone asked me to translate.The song is gospell oriented and the line goes,"TE AMO,TE NECESITO...QUIERO PROSTARME ANTE TU ALTAR,"as to pray to God.What do ya think?

    Quiero POSTRARME ...

    Sandra figured that out alright.
    And with some context it’s so much easier :

    I want to kneel down before your altar ...


    PS. Eddiemol, welcome to the forum,
    where are you from? Your name sounds Dutch to me.
    beste groeten - sincères salutations - kindest regards - atentamente - mit freundlichen Grüßen

    wow! I couldn't have imagined! see? context means everything in a translation. I really wanted to contribute but had no idea.
    Frank gave you the right one!!!
