• 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.

For a change based on no particular suggestion other than the whim of an Admin, we've changed the default user titles.

The new structure is as follows:

Post Count / Title
0-24 Freshman Lounger [Those just getting started]
25-99 Junior Lounger [A step up the ladder]
100-249 Senior Lounger [Knows the way around]
250-499 Reclined Lounger [The beginnings of a serious Lounge way of life]
500-999 Pro Lounger [Big time. Know it all or more likely, just thinks so]
1000+ Power Lounger [Wow, you've wasted a lot of time here!]

If you have a custom title set, you won't see these listed above. You'll have to adjust that in your user CP.

Haha I am a Power Lounger now! To the Max!!!! But I prefer "Nmmber 93"

Perhaps you should add a couple more intervals such as 1500, 2000, 2500, and than stop at 3000 maybe?

Maybe in the future when more people are up in the higher numbers. We spent some time deciding these levels and will stick with them for a bit.

I was considering a 10,000 post super title should anyone get there!
