• Please note that signatures and avatars on iLounge are only available after reaching certain membership thresholds.

    Signatures

    In order to be able to have a signature, users must have been a member for 7 days and have accumulated 10 posts.


    Avatars

    Avatars are reserved for only the most senior of iLounge forum members. Users will not be able to use an avatar until they have been a member for a minimum of one year, and accumulated 1,500 posts. This is considered the Veteran Lounger level of membership.


    A note on post whoring...

    We welcome and encourage our members to make valuable and useful contributions to the iLounge forums, and to have fun, socialize, and actively participate in discussions on the forums. However, as per the Forum Policy, we will not tolerate excessive and unnecessary posting. Posting inane and pointless messages solely to increase one's post count in the hopes of reaching a higher membership level will be dealt with by the forum staff. Unnecessary posts may be subject to removal, and persisting in this behaviour will result in post counts being reduced and any further action being taken as deemed necessary.


  • With the number of recent threads from brand new users that we have observed in our Classifieds forum selling goods under questionable circumstances, we have instituted a new policy restricting new members of iLounge from posting new threads in the Classifieds forum until they have reached "Regular Member" status.

    New users become Regular Members once they have made 10 posts and been a member of the iLounge Forums for at least 7 days. Prior to this time, members may still read the Classifieds forum, and even respond to existing threads for items being sold by other members, but they may not create new threads advertising their own items for sale.

    This will hopefully help to protect our user community by discouraging fraudulent users from signing up and posting classified ads without having at least a very basic level of established membership in our forums.

    Obviously all users should still exercise due diligence when making use of our classifieds forums, but we hope that this restriction will help to decrease the number of blatantly fraudulent ads that we have been seeing in recent weeks.

    Please be sure to review our Classified Forum Policy for more information.

Ok so the first part works as can be expected (I found the orange link that says "Quick Links + Your Profile" easily enough).

AHHH!
New members are not permitted to post images or links.
This is the second time today! When can I be promoted to non-new member?

Anyway...
basically when I click the profile button I get this error message.
Philippe Lemay, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
Your account may be awaiting activation. Check your e-mail for an Activation Confirmation link.
Your account has been temporarily restricted for violations of the Forum Policy, in which case you should have received a Private Message from a member of the Forum Staff. Please check your Private Messages and respond as appropriate.
This might be because... back when I first signed up I got a bit confused and sent a panicked message to the site administrators about how someone was stealing my passwords and email address. It turns out that it was just me being silly because I had already signed up to this forum a few month prior, and I had just forgotten...

But I realized the fact after I had sent the panicked message. So I think the admins may have... locked me out of parts of my own account. And I'm not sure how I can fix this.

welcome to the lounge :)

I'm just checked your profile and you're in the Regular Members group since you've been here more than seven days & have made more than 10 posts, so if you're having other issues can you let us know and we'll look into it.

btw here's the forum policy if you want to check something specific...

Ah, yes... It must have been the 10-post count thingy. I can now see my own profile, excellent...


Let's just put up a test image to see if that works.
