    Probation

    I've been registered since Aug and have enough posts to comply with the activation of my account, it even did two V's on both of them, yet the forum keeps begging me about it and I cannot post anywhere but this category.


    P.S. The forum "complete the profile" can never be fulfilled, it says that I need to add a signature to complete the profile, yet, I don't have a permission to do so.


    Sad that I cannot complain about this on the feed back board but only on this board, even tho I already had my introduction.

    If you do not know how vbulletin’s promotion system works, why are you using it? The promotion is cron based which means YOU need to log in and visit a few pages to activate the cron job which is processed every ten minutes. If you do not do this, you won’t be promoted.

    I am not using it, neither do I have idea what you mean.

    I randomly visit the forum to watch for mods and browse their sources for my forums.

    Sounds like an event that is going on, really confusing as a regular user of this forum and gives that feel that forum is bugged, I've created two accounts in my pass time visiting these forums and turned off from using this forum every time because it never let me do anything.

    It would be nice if this could somehow be changed and be more informative and friendly towards users.

    We resteict the use of a signature on “new” accounts that are in the probation period to stop people from adding their site link just for hits when bots crawl this site. You can complete your profile and the profile info box will disappear. There is a wealth of information on the board and everyone here is friendly so I son’t understand you last point.

    My last point was the hardness of understanding the software.

    Friendly people can be found everywhere, but what is the point if one have to keep fighting the software to join the community?
    As the thread started, the software had told me I passed all the check marks yet, it didn't treat me as a normal/verified user.
    I did this back in August, yet, it since then didn't change.

    Why the forum doesn't allow to post on other boards than the introduction? links can be disabled for unverified users.
    Why for each reply and thread, a moderator must approve?



    I would like to take this post and mention as well that the expendable status on the posts, are rather annoying and uncomfortable. (as far as I know, these expendable tabs were always here, even few years ago)
    If there is an option to make them always displayed without the button to collapse/reveal, that would be great.

    Stats on the posts always encourage active users to stay active to see how far they got til now.

    EDIT: Made myself a script on Tampermonkey to change the looks of the forum, is there a board on this forum where I can share it with others?
