Thread: New rights/permissions on MyBroadband forums

  1. #1

    Default New rights/permissions on MyBroadband forums

    Hi folks

    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.

    Super Grandmasters

    After 5,000 posts users can request custom titles – you may have seen some of these around.

    I believe rpm is referring to an alternative to "Super-Grandmaster" - afaik users can request username changes at anytime.
