We have recently made some changes on the permissions of forum members because of problems with spammers, scammers and trolls. Here is a rundown of what has recently changed:
Registered users (new members)
All rights, but can not post in Classifieds section, PD forum and CA forums. Also cannot have signatures and post visitor messages (big problem with spammers there).
After three month’s membership and 50 post
Users get upgraded to a new user group with rights to all forums, Classifieds section etc. Users can also use signatures and have full rights with messaging.
After 5,000 posts users can request custom titles – you may have seen some of these around.
