User Permissions - profile & album picture access
Hi and welcome to The Long Hair community!
If you are wondering why you do not have access to certain areas or features of the forum, checking your user-status will explain it.
This is not to annoy or exclude the newbies you are welcome on the forum. Those restrictions are in place to reduce spam and to provide a minimum of privacy and we are sorry that this inconvenience is necessary.
Thanks for your understanding
Newbies (0-25 posts):
Can view, post and create new threads on the public and off-topic forums - except starting new polls
Can have an avatar/profile photo, if it was submitted during signing up - changes can be made once you're in the 25+ user group, since they require profile access
Can not view profiles or leave profile visitor messages
Can not view or edit their own profile - the software does not differ between the access to your own or other profiles
Can not see Blogs or Photo Albums, since those are attached to the profiles
Can not read, edit or delete profile visitor messages left on their profiles by other users
Can not make or accept "Friends"-requests - there's no point in using the Friends-feature until a user can access the profile, blog or album areas

The next permission level starts at a postcount of 100+ posts and 60+ days of membership, please see this link for a full list of all user permission levels.
Not all posts do raise your post count, this depends on the area of the forum where you are posting.
Being promoted to the next level even after reaching 25+ is not happening instantly, it requires quality posts, moderator approval, time and that the software works as it should.
To ask general account permission questions and to view the full list of user permissions, please click the link to go to the discussion thread in the Site Happenings.
If you already made 25+ posts and waited some days and your account still did not get promoted to the next permission level, please Contact Us at the staff email to ask for help.
