What Site Options Can I Use?

5 posts in this topic

There are several levels of membership, based on the post count, and each level allows members to use more options.

Unfortunately, our board software displays all options to all members, and members without permission to use them receive a generic error message when they try, which is confusing and frustrating, and for this, we apologize.

Your post count and membership level ("Group") are displayed to the left of each of your posts. If you haven't posted, you are, by definition, a "New Member."

New Member: 9 or fewer substantive posts

New Members may use board Search from the banner at the top of each page. New Members may not use Private Messenger (PM), board email, or Member search.

New Members may start threads, respond to threads, and respond to blogs, unless posting privileges have been suspended. If a member is on "Moderated," the post will not appear until reviewed by a Moderator for content. (Please see How This Site Is Moderated for more details.)

Bloggers may choose to review replies before they are "published" to the blog. If you respond to a blog, and it doesn't appear immediately, the blogger hasn't approved it.

Member: Between 10 and 99 substantive posts.

Members have all of the privileges of New Members, and, in addition, may use Private Messenger (PM), board email, and the Member search from the banner at the top of each page.

Please note: If you try to send a PM or a board email to a New Member, you will receive an error message noting that the recipient doesn't have permissions to the service. Both members must have PM or email privileges for it to work.

Senior Members: 100 or more substantive posts.

Senior Members have all of the privileges of Members, and, in addition, may create blogs.

Please forgive me if my eyes have skipped right past this issue on my search of the site - I did try to find the answer on my own, but sometimes my opacity is astonishing! :blushing:

I am just wondering why I cannot see members' avatars - I'm thinking that this might be due to my being such a new member, with very few posts, but thought I'd check to be sure. I tried to upload a photo to my profile, but it didn't "stick." Thank you!

We don't support uploading graphics files on Ballet Talk, including avatars, with the exception of rg's photo collection that rg so generously shares with us.

Thank you for explaining, Helene. That is a good way to keep the crisp, clean look of the forum. Since I saw the photo option on my settings page, I figured there must be something I wasn't understanding - glad to know what's what. Thanks again.

I was trying to change the screens to get rid of all of the photo references, but there were a couple I couldn't figure out. :wub:
