If you a regular here who has just logged in to find that you are suddenly pink and a "New Member" then worry not. As soon as you post next you will be automatically promoted into the new group "Regulars".

 

If you are a long-standing member of the site but you do not wish to post at this time, please feel free to send me a PM and I will manually promote you.

 

This change has been put in place due to the issues with new members posting excessively in order to gain downloading privileges.

 

Those in the "New Members" group now have some limited download privileges whether they choose to post/download or not. This is restricted to enough to download approximately an emulator and one layout, or two layouts, per day.

This gives new members the chance to try out the emulators in the hope that they will choose to join in the discussion or to make a donation. These limits are subject to review.

 

All other member groups will stay unchanged at this time.

 

PLEASE NOTE that "Regular" does NOT just mean "being registered on the site for ages". It will also be judged by what contribution you have made to the site over that time.

"Contribution" does not necessarily relate to a financial one - having contributed by uploading files and resources, or making useful posts over the years, will be seen as having equal or even greater value to the site.

Whenever duplicates come to my attention I merge them into one account.

A good idea, but I fear for more spam of "OMG I CAN'T DOWNLOAD THIS!!!"

 

Does the forum software allow them to be linked to a specific error page stating that you've met your daily quota, get involved or donate to be able to download more?

Hopefully yes. Will look into it further when I have time.

I don't mind pink at all ;) , it's just the pale shade of it I dislike, I'm sure it could have been deeper to make it easier to read.

I quite like being a 'noobie' - I might learn one or two things within FME...

 

...it's never too late to learn - just as long as you remember it!  :bigeyes19:

Unfortunately it seems there are a limited range of colours - I don't know if it supports hex codes.

If it goes too dark it would be more easily confused with the existing purple colour that is used for mod group.

How come IM not yellow etc and I thought yellow was for gold supporters, not being funny here but there was a topic not so long ago about status's and we eliminated green for creators. Maybe we creator's can be Green once more

Layout creators don't have a colour or a badge, there was a poll about it. You still have the extra privileges though. You also have a "Donator" badge to recognise your financial contribution to the site.

 

Would you like me to create a special group and badge just for you?
