The all new: Ask a moderator about the forum & rules

Recommended Posts

New to the forums and checking up on rules regarding posting and PMing.

I noticed that PMs are locked down for users with less than one post and that "Hello, I'm new" threads are prohibited so here are my questions:

1. Does this reply count as my first post?

2. Can I now send PMs for purpose of collaboration?

Respectfully,

-=Ares=-

There's a "The Newcomers' Introduction Thread" thread only a few entries below the "Ask a moderator" thread ;)

As someone else suggested, would it be possible to rename all "addons and mods discussion" sub forums into "addons and mods WIP". A discussion forum is meant to discuss addons, but the given subforums are (only) meant to discuss addons Work in progress.

Can I post an ad to sell my TrackIR 5? I figure this will be mutually beneficial for me and some lucky community member? I wanted to ask before posting in case its a no-go. I couldn't find a BUY & SELL forum on BI only OFFTOPIC

I can reply to threads, but I can not create a new thread? I assume it's for spammer protection... How can I get the protection removed? I would like to post about my user created missions. Thanks.

Hi

This is bound to have been asked before, but I genuinely can't find the answer - how can I rename a thread I've created?

Thanks,

Igor

Hi,

You can't unfortunately, if you would like you thread renaming. Best thing to do is to report the post and say what you would like it changing too.

Cheers

From a post from another thread:

Hello,

Could you please create a ticket on our feedback tracker describing the problem and send me link to the ticket in response?

Thank you!

His post and username make him look like a BIS employee but he is missing the usual avatar and title attached to employees, his profile missing any info doesn't help either. Is he a BIS employee with an incomplete new account or is it an attempt to impersonate one?

You should be able to post a thread once you have 1 post under your name.

I'm having issues with editing my profile. I have a confirmation email in by account from back in Dec, but I'm not sure if I clicked on it or not. Could someone take a look and see whats up?

You need to have made a few more posts on the forum (replies to active threads and such). If you read the forum rules (as everyone is supposed to when joining ;)) it's covered at the bottom:

3. New members are limited in editing/accessing variety of profile & forum features.

These limitations are removed for regular forum users.

I "read" the rules when I joined up, but I should probably go back and read them :rolleyes:
