my bad, was reading the wrong bit....

"IF you don't visit the site within 14 days, you will be downgraded but upgraded again once you've posted another 10 posts, this will re-enable your ability to post videos"

So you still need to be a regular poster and come on to the site regularly too
Nice on Hippodrone, thanks for the help and info.

I appreciate the "rules" or guidelines spelled out so well, thank you. I appreciate knowing the culture and expectations.

I've not kept it a secret that the forum has had a battle between people joining to learn, share and interact - Then you have the people who sign up to try and slap videos everywhere with the hope of gaining some subs blah blah

The old rules as such can be found here

Basically, the rules were "You can't just join up and spam, you need to have posted say 5 posts in a week period and then you could 'advertise' your vlog in the post your video section, spam rules relaxed etc.

The member's Vlogs section were also stopped from being found in the 'new posts' section. This gave members the choice to visit this section of their own free will.

For the next month or two, I am going to try this
  • To have the ability to post in your 'post your video' area you need
    • Have at least 30 posts in total
    • Your account must be older than 7 days from registering your account
    • You must have at least 2 likes from 2 different members
    • You must have an avatar uploaded
  • This will stop/slow spammers and 'check my channel' people.

I have now enabled vlogs to show in the 'new posts' section going forwards BUT there is a catch.... The catch is that you have to give to this forum if you want to tap into the member and guest database... We get over 5k visits a day on this site.

The catch is this
  • If you meet the rules above - You will be able to add one thread every three days - This will slow people down and members getting annoyed with videos being posted around the clock.
  • New posts in this section WILL show in the main new posts section aka more coverage, like any other thread.
  • IF you don't visit the site within 14 days, you will be downgraded but upgraded again once you've posted another 10 posts, this will re-enable your ability to post videos

I think this will be a good middle ground that keeps members using the forum while being able to promote their channels in the RIGHT section.

I guess this is no longer in effect?

Basically, you have not posted since April and then come on here without interacting on any of the non video posts or even starting a new discussion. To share content you must participate in the forums.

(btw, these posts count towards your count)
The rules are a mess at the moment, so I get the confusion. It is possibly something that puts off new members so I will get on it as soon as I can.
You have been a member on here far longer than I have so I hope you can join in on the threads that have been posted since you were last here and share your content with us all once you are able, be ace to have your input on things! :)
