    Default Question

    Can someone change me back to Distinguished community member considering I have been here since 2006? It says new member now. No biggie, just asking:-)

    We all went through the same thing. I don't know if they can change it but when you reach a certain amount of posts it will switch over automatically. As you can see we all lost our post amounts during the change too. I am sure you will catch up in no time.

    Registered Users are posts 1-10. When you've posted 11 times, you'll be a Distinguished Community Member.
    It's really easy to put someone on ignore and it's strongly recommended that you do so with people whose posts you don't like.

    Step 1 - log in
    Step 2 - click on the "settings" link
    Step 3 - click on the "edit ignore list" link on the left side of the screen
    Step 4 - type (or paste if you copied and pasted it) the username of the person you want to ignore
    Step 5 - click the "ok" button on the right of the screen

    One important note though, this won't hide quoted posts. It's an oversight on the developers part and it's not an easy thing to "fix." So if someone quotes someone you have ignored, you'll see the quote.

    Alternatively when you click on a person's name and view their profile page, underneath their avatar, there is a option that says, "Ignore this person". Click that link and then click the yes button.

    You also have to be registered for 30 days.
    Question: Why can't I post links or pictures?
    Question: Why can't I have a signature, avatar, or profile picture?
    Question: What's wrong with my account?

    Answer: You are in the "registered users" user group. This group is very limited in what it can do. This will annoy spammers to no end Just keep posting once you have been registered for 30 days and have made 11 posts your account will be "unlocked".

    Easy peasy and will lower your blood pressure. One important note though, this won't hide quoted posts. It's an oversight on the developers part and it's not an easy thing to "fix." So if someone quotes someone you have ignored, you'll see the quote.

    For the record, I had to repost over 100 to get my status back. IMHO - Not Right.
    Member since at LEAST 2007.
    Small potatoes I know but what is right is right- Nothing is constant but change BUT - you don't change the rules in the middle of the game.

    I was kind of bummed about losing my post count but not having to deal with P*rn and spam and this cool new forum makes it worth it. I am sure that some could put their join date in their signature if they wish, I believe some do.

    I fail to see how **** or anything else has to do with it. I never had a problem with either from this forum - and where are these new features? What are they? and what do they have to do with the original question? Hoping for an answer... I see very little differance between this forum and the old forum. Please bea in mind that I ask these questions with all due respect, but would like answers.
