    Post count and other rewards

    Here is a list of the different rewards and privileges for remaining a contributing member of the HEXUS.community. New members should realise that if you blatantly spam you way to reach one of these levels (5 posts for a URL, or 20 posts for Scan2HEXUS are the usual reasons) you can quite easily have your post count dropped to zero or just be refused that particular privilege... of flat out banner for being a spammer.

    What is Pink Handbag Day?
    Basically a day for brolove & charity. It's been a long standing tradition (albeit infrequent & entirely random) that us guys (and girlies) put a pink handbag in our sig & make a charitable donation. The bag pics thing gets quite competitive & kudos goes to the best bag of the day.

    That's about it really for most, but the hardcore PHD'ers like to go that bit further & pose with respective pink handluggage & post pics for public praise & ridicule.

    i think we could do with a long term member PM storage update, at least double once you hit the 500 post mark

    re: Post count and other rewards

    If you need long term storage, why just just download them. You can store them as long as you want then, and it's easy to do.

    re: Post count and other rewards

    I was unaware there were any post count rewards until now! Well apart from the free postage one, that's incredible - easily the best reward in my opinion.

    And I was wondering why I can't see the sale forum, at least that's cleared up.

    Yeah. That might seem a bit strange, but the restriction on access to the selling bit was, at least in part, to stop people coming on here just to sell. And, of course, to reflect that if you've got to put in a bit of effort, it reduces scamster's motivation to join for that. With the wanted section, it's much less likely to appeal to that type. I had, however, often wondered if it might not make more sense to have the same criteria apply to access for both.

    re: Post count and other rewards

    Does anyone in the know want to tell what it is?

    I'm guessing this is an anti-spam measure to stop links in sigs etc.
