    Sometimes, we have all the right words, but not necessarily in the right order ( I think a few have done that, I know I have ) :oops:

    There have always been short term members of the forum who have just joined to promote some product, or who can't behave in a civil manner.

    They usually get reported by the "Report" button or picked up by the moderators.
    People who abuse the forum are normally kicked off.

    [I think long term members may earn the occasional slap, as well!]

    Again, I can't see how the occasional SPAMmer or Troll appearing then being banned can make a Members Only area pointless.
    No strategy is perfect, but surely we should go for the one which offers us the best result we can get?

    Anyway, in the hands of the site owners now.

    Cheers

    LGC

    P.S. Members Only access might be granted only after a certain time of "well behaved" membership.
    Another difficult one - do you require a certain number of acceptable posts?
    If so how do you define this?
    How about ten posts and four weeks membership?
    This gives new members plenty of opportunity to post, but doesn't give them full access until they have shown commitment to the forum and a willingness to post?
    If they just want to read and not post then they stay with the public content.

    Yep, I know... I changed my profile picture yesterday to conceal my ID.. It was fine this morning.. Then whilst perusing after work noticed my original avatar back, a green "online notification" spot in the bottom right of said picture & the reply/quote button shifted...

    .... Naturally I reached for my meter.!

    Yep, same here. I actually saw my avatar change in front of my eyes! From old to new, then back to the old one. Grrr! So fed up, especially with all the risks to identity that I changed it manually.

    I sat in the shadows for months just reading and gleaning information till I felt comfortable that my LA would not cause me too much trouble as I find it easier to write things down and amend grammar and text rather than the spoken word, even then I have been caught out a couple of times with the wrong word or phrase but most of the time I can cope this way, some of the points in your P.S. would have put people like me at a disadvantage as I am not usually a prolific poster even though I long to join in

    Lol I can only assume member profiles get "backed up" from time to time & while the forum was undergoing stuff my old profile pic was was thrown in when things were "restored"?

    I normally use an Ipad. So double checked on my PC where I edited & keep my new pic.. & just changed it back..
    Personally, I don't mind. Oversights happen!

    It all works on Safari & Firefox. :cool:

    With regards to the initial topic... I feel we had a measured statment on this matter on page 3 from the powers that be..;)

    Thanks Adrian, the support I have had from yourself, Kat , RRB, Brunaria, ohitsnicola and the others have encouraged me to keep on trying, you guys have no idea how grateful I am, my vocabulary expands slowly but surely.

    Quality is more important than quantity, @satindoll , and your posts are quality.

    Oh, just to mention:

    If you look back through your posts here and there is anything you wish you hadn't said in public as far as I can tell you can go back and edit it so it is no longer there.
