Here you can find answers to questions about how the board works. Use the links or search box below to find your way around.
There are a number of features and facilities that become available when a registered member reaches a certain qualification, usually in terms of length of postcount, membership, or both. Some of these are designed merely to be a minor reward for activity on the board, but others are to prevent abuses by new members, and especially spammers. For example, brand new members can't use the PM (Personal Message) facility, because we had a number of cases where it was being abused by PM Spamming.
Some postcount rewards include :-
5 posts – can post hyperlinks
15 posts – can use PM's (Personal Message system) and edit profile fields, etc
20 posts - Scan2HEXUS free shipping
25 posts - thanks user
100 - access to the Shopping and retail therapy forum
200 – access to Gallery to submit images
200 – custom user title - alter comment under username
500 - custom avatar
HEXUS has three forums specifically for members that a buying and selling :-
- Classifieds - Sell your Stuff
- Current Bargains
The Classified section is for members to advertise and sell their own stuff. There are some fairly specific rules attached to this, and as they've evolved over the years we've been doing this, usually in response to problems and issues, we do insist on them being followed and enforce them.
Access to Classified is restricted to members with a minimum postcount, as per the Postcounts and Rewards section of this FAQ. The rules can be found in a Sticky in the Classifieds forum.
In addition, access to other parts of the Shopping and Retail Therapy section is restricted to registered members only, so if you're browsing as a guest and want to see it, you'll have to register.
These sections are facilities provided for regular, active members of HEXUS. We do review usage from time to time and reserve the right to withdraw access, entirely at our discretion, to any member that is not actively participating on other forums.
