and how long 'til new members can put up an avatar? i tried checking faq, didn't work.
I have 10 and still can't?
Do things like http://www.dawgsaloon.com/profile.php?do=editprofile and http://www.dawgsaloon.com/profile.php?do=editoptions start working after probation has ended? It seems silly that the links on the "your registration is now complete" page do not work.
Thank you, Mr Ed. Your registration is now complete.
You may now proceed to edit your Profile<link http://www.dawgsaloon.com/profile.php?do=editprofile> in order to fill in additional personal details about yourself, or you could modify your Options<link> to customize your browsing experience of this site. If you would rather do these things later, you can do so by following the links around the site to your User Control Panel<link>.
Later Edit (after end of probie status):
Looks like it takes 12 posts to end probie status.
During probation, posts including URLs (links to sites or graphics) require manual approval (presumably by a mod).
After probie status has ended, editing profile and settings works
Haven't tried editing AV, yet, but it should work, too.
Thank you for posting! Your post will not be visible until a moderator has approved it for posting.
approved. sorry for the inconvenience.
Aren't you dead?
Looks like Newbie Probation actually lasts 11 posts. That, or there's a manual step. This is my 11th post, will find out, shortly.
Looks like manual step (mod approval) or minimum time delay requirement. This will be my 12th post, and I was still a "Probie" after 11, even after logging out and back in.
Looks like either the 12th post did the trick, or the time delay / mod approval kicked in.
Thanks to a mod if it was manual.
was wondering the same thing- thanks for the useful info
i just got off probation and now im back on it again
I put up my av before the end of probation (hopefully it wasn't an oversight, but I'll be off probation soon enough anyhow).
Click "Forum Actions" and choose "Edit Profile" from the drop-down.
Scroll down, and on the left you should see "Edit Avatar".
I'm still technically on probation, but I have an av.
EDIT: Now I'm a loud mouth drunk.
That seems appropriate.
motherfucker I'm on probation
hey why can't i have an avatar - this doesn't seem right
oh hey i can have an avatar now - all is right with the world!
the next time mother!
Working on an avatar.
I have made 10 posts and I'm still on probation...
OK- now it looks like I'm off probation. Hooray!
I'm on probation, just wondered if after I'm acceptable, the settings include ability to make the whole giant list of avatars and whatnot on the left of posts invisible.Its too much space under the post , just that I hate to scroll, and I dont care to read everyones life history and mood...
