Links and new members

Post by Athena on Sun Mar 10, 2013 6:04 am

Hey Admins, Smile
just wanted to let you know that I wanted to include the usual disclaimer in the 50 Books challenge. I got this error message though...

New members are not allowed to post external links or emails for 7 days. Please contact the forum administrator for more information.

I will just wait a few more days then.

No worries Deej. Very Happy It does make sense not to let a new member post links, so I just wait.

We do that on another forum. New members can't post links until they've been a member for 8 days AND have made 10 posts. Until both are met, they can't do links. They try to get around it by leaving the http part off, but that's where the moderators come in. We edit their post, leave a standard "read the damn rules" note (we each use the same thing), and sometimes leave a note specific to that person or post. If they do it more than once, we use a warning system.

I'm not going to limit people I know and trust, but I will watch Newbies.

I *think* there's a way the admin can skip the person beyond the limit or opt them out of it.

But, seriously, you should watch Athena. She's weird.

I strive to keep raising (or lowering) the bar for weirdness.

I got the same error message when I stole err...borrowed the disclaimer from ElaineB , so I deleted the URL. Was that bad? :twisted: Did I mess up? Yeesh, I've been here for two days, and I'm tearing down the house already.

Smile Hey, Bass girl, you didn't mess up anything dont worry. New members are not allowed to post any external links cause of unnecessary spam and commercials. Sometimes people just join forums to reklam their products and then leave the place and forget about it. This is an automatic set up of the forum (all forums). I think Deej alredy changed it, if she haven't she will soon. If you have any other problems with posting links let us know. Very Happy

Hi folks! Don't know if ya'll remember me but I remember you ;) I didn't forget about you just been extremely busy with life issues. It's been a terrible 10 months for me, we lost our house causing me to be separated from my family and then actually splitting from my partner of 23 years. I'm still working on writing those of you that remember but the good news is that I'm almost done. Smile anyway I'm glad that I was invited to be here. Thank you

Hey CQ, I'm so sorry for all you've been through. I absolutely remember you and feel terrible about your trials and tribulations.

Stop by when you can and please know we're here if you just need a laugh or two. We're good for that. Take care.

Hi CQ! Wow, you have been through a lot. I do remember you, so welcome! I hope this can be a no-stress zone for you. Stop by any time. Friends
