I think that everyone should start off on good terms, with PM ability, and then let only the violators lose priviledges.
(I feel the same way about being able to share e-mails.) 2cents
Then again, it's not my forum to decide who gets what, but I still hope that this suggestion will be considered.


Brightest Blessings!

This place is rididculous been here 3 years and still no pm privileges. No administration will ever answer questions about upgrading membership.Tried applying for tenured membership. Did that 2 weeks ago and still haven't heard anything. I think you should start with all the privileges and then lose them if you do something to deserve it like Bella said. :frustrated:

:ot: does anyone know how long it takes to get out of moderation, or are all messages here held in the moderation queue for every member?

Theoretically, I believe it's in the two-four week area. But you have to be an active poster. :)

Thank you, Earth Spirit. It's a bit frustrating to have your posts held for an unknown period of time, to be sure, it makes me want to post less, and not more. But I guess I'll try to tough it out regardless.

I'm in the same boat. Trying to be patient and tell myself that just because I know I'm a'ight and what my intentions are, there is probably an underlying reason for the layers of proof...

YEP, I THINK IT TAKES 30 POSTS TO HAVE THE RESTRICTION REMOVED. IT'S NOT PERSONAL, IT'S JUST WE DON'T READ ALL THE THREADS POSTED, WE APPROVE MEMBERSHIPS ON THE HONOR SYSTEM (WHEN SOMEONE WRITES IN TO SAY THEY'RE HUMAN & NOT A SPAMMER), AND THIS WAY IT PREVENTS PEOPLE WHO ARE HERE TO JUST BOOST UP A SELLER REVIEW THREAD OR SOLICIT BUSINESS, OR BE OUTRAGEOUS, ETC.

AS FOR THE PMING, WE DID HAVE PROBLEMS WITH IT IN THE PAST. PEOPLE USING THE PM SYSTEM TO SOLICIT BUSINESS FROM OTHER MEMBERS, PEOPLE PASSING GARBAGE & GOSSIP ABOUT OTHERS & SELLERS, AND OTHER NONSENSE. IT WAS ENOUGH TO SCARE US OFF THE PUBLIC PMING WHEN WE OPENED THIS BOARD FROM THE OLD BOARD.

I SUPPOSE WE COULD LOOK AT IT AGAIN & WEIGH THE PROS & CONS.

AS FOR GETTING PMS & BEING TENURED, YOU ACTUALLY HAVE TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE BOARD ON A REGULAR BASIS. WHAT'S THE POINT OF HAVING PMS TO TALK TO THE MEMBERS OF THE BOARD IF YOU'RE NOT AN ACTIVE POSTER? IF YOU DON'T KNOW THEM BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT ACTIVELY INVOLVED WITH THEM, WHAT'S THE POINT OF PMING THEM?


WISHES FOR YOUR DELIGHT,

Ok, I'm a little confused here. I have been trying to get the PM thing straightened out since I was tenured. I STILL don't have it! On the one hand you state that you might look into letting EVERYONE (it seems) PM--"you'd weigh the pros and cons" and on the other hand you state that as for getting PMS and being tenured, you actually have to contribute on a regular basis and be actively involved with people. Ok, so with all said and done above, why can't I still get to PM??????? Yes, I have contacted the Help Desk twice. Maybe a nudge from you might help---I am beginning to get paranoid here.......... :skull:


I've found that evil usually triumphs unless good is VERY, VERY careful.......:skull:

Don't get MAD---get EVEN......... :skull:
