In order to post any sort of ad you need to have 5 posts and be a member for 30 days. WORD BRO.

Default O.K. - that clears it up

I am new to the forum (brand new) and couldn't see the pictures of a Trike upgrade I found interesting. Searched FAQs, but might have not used the magic words in the search.

NEW MEMBERS WILL NOT HAVE ACCESS TO PICTURES OR PMs UNTIL THEY HAVE BEEN AN ACTIVE MEMBER FOR FIVE DAYS AND FIVE POSTS.

Ive been going through the complaints today in this section about not being able to access PMs or pictures and I see that almost every person with a problem has made less than 5 posts, or theyve been here for less than five days. This is why a great many of the people having the problem later post "nevermind..it works now".

If you are having these problems and you have less than five posts and less than five days on the forum...nothing is wrong. If youve been inactive for a long time, welcome back...post around the forum a little and when the system upgrades usergroups (usually later in the evening) you should be promoted.

If any of you have been here for more than five days and more than five posts (dont assume..make sure), please post in this section with a link to the thread with the pictures that you cannot see.

Reminder, HD Forums rules do not allow posting meaningless posts in order to boost your post count. So don't post 5 messages here so you can view images. They will be removed and your post count reset.

Thank you for your time and patience while we deal with the spam issues.

I don't have much to say yet. Just got my first HD and am reading and learning. At least now I know why I'm not seeing the images properly.

Sorry for being confused - in addition to 5 posts, is the time requirement 5 days or 30 days? Post #1 says "5 days" and Post #14 says "30 days". Thanks.

Just saying here, but Admin still have the Guest permissions as able to view images....in other words, if there is a picture you want to view and you do not yet meet the 5 post, 5 day criteria, simply log out. You will be able to view the image as a guest.
