Member forums off limits?
« on: Sat, 21 July 2012, 19:00:18 »
Can't go do my daily viewing of member threads.. D: Someone tried to direct link me but it said I'm off limits. He doesn't know what to do either. Anyone know? Halp please.

There appears to be a post limit you need to obtain to view the member subforums =)  I believe we're talking about 1000 posts or more!

Dang - I need to get posting!

The weird thing is I see the threads showing up as unread, but I can't see the subforums from the main page.

I'd be there now if it weren't for rollbacks!  Not complaining though...really starting to like the new GH and the dedication to improvement.

So does anyone know how many posts are needed, still won't let noobs access it. I feel like I'm missing out on awesomeness.

Noobs?  I can't access them and I have a good number of posts. I can't even see where those are located.

It's not listed on board index until you have 1k posts. I believe they're working on fixing that.

Whew, that's good. It's going to take me years to get to 1k posts on here...


Also, I can't seem to PM people right now. I am specifically interested in PMing changdrew about my keycaps from his Taobao buy...

I can't pm members either. I wanted to PM ragnorock about his groupbuy leftover sales.
this is pretty lame.

Why can you not PM people?  The little caption bubble icon under the users title next to each post is the PM link...

I think what I meant to say is that I can not view members profiles.
This means we can not see:
threads started by user
posts by user

this is useful when trying to find marketplace threads started by ragnorock, boilermaker, etc.

RE: Profiles, they are not needed to PM people or to view a user's posts. Use the advanced search and you can find posts by a specified user.

Obviously they will get profiles visible once the existing issues with them are resolved, but this is how I always found a given user's posts since the same function in Vbulletin was always broken anyway.

It looks like they have fixed the issues with permissions to view members profiles.
advanced search is clunky. it is much easier to click on a user and click threads started by:

anyways thanks admins for the hard work getting the site working again.
