• 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.

Why is it that some forums only show the first page of posts and dont give a choice to go into the previous ones. I go to the Shuffle forum and I see the latest 10-15 posts and theres no more pages to go to. The "Feedback" forum also has the same issue. Have all the previous posts been deleted somehow? or is the problem on my side?

I tried logging off and clearing cookies, same thing. Also I tried accessing the forums with IE, just in case, same deal. I remember this happening a long time ago but it went away and the older pages came back somehow.

Any help? I want to view older posts in some forums.

if you go into your User Control Panel, there's an Edit Option link. When you click on that you should see a "Thread Display Options" setting. Check to see what your "Default Thread Age Cutoff" is - mine is set to show all threads....

Thanks a lot. That solved the issue. Im wondering why the older threads suddenly stopped displaying tho. I had that option set at "Forum default", did the default recently change? cuz I remember being able to see older threads before. Or is there a chance that the option got reset or switched to default on my user CP without me realizing it? Weirdness.

In any way, thanks for the help. It was sad to see only a handful of threads in each forum for a while.
