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


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


    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.

Legit Online Music Thread



Apr 23, 2003
Third Rock From The Sun
Just a thought, but I thought it might be worth considering a permanent subheading in here for discussion of legitimate online music services, with subcategories (stickies) for Itunes for Mac,(granted, it would take some reorganization, as it's already in the mac thread, but soon there will be Itunes for windows), as well as an Itunes for Windows subcategory, one for Emusic, one for Rhapsody, etc (there are more on the way--Echo is going to be a legitimate windows based online music store, for example, and there is at least one other in the works as well). It may be too early for this, but it may be something to consider in the future, and perhaps they're wouldn't be a huge demand for such a thread, but my suspicion is it would get more hits than the moodlogic thread...

I don't think these things fit all that well into music explorations; think it would be kinda cool to have an area specific for legitimate music stores...

Something along the lines of this (from our friends over at Jriver) is what I had in mind:
