    Default 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
    Can not view the Community Meets area and Social Groups
    Can not view Off-Topic forums
    Can not submit articles or product reviews
    Can not have a signature
    Can not set self to invisible
    Can not use Private Messaging
    Can not edit their own posts

    25+ posters:
    Can view profiles, read and leave profile visitor messages
    Can edit their own profile (layout/colors/font) and edit/delete visitor messages
    Can create an own Blog and Photo Album - Photo Storage: 100 pictures
    Can view and comment on other LHC Blogs and Photo Albums, if they are not private - then you need to be on someone's friendlist to view them
    Can make and receive Friends-requests
    Can view, join and post in Social Groups - all except creating new Social Groups
    Can view Off-Topic forums
    Can create new polls
    Can have a signature - Sig Limit: 3 lines
    Can set self to invisible
    Can use Private Messaging - PM Storage: 50 messages
    Can edit their own posts - please note that editing posts for other purposes than fixing typos or adding something is not permitted
    Can not view the Community Meets area
    Can not submit articles and product reviews

    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.
