Posting and You!

I found this earlier today and I thought it would be a good thing to post.
It's kinda silly:

Posting And You!

Lol, funny!  ;D

I have a question...how do you become a "Palace Member"
??
It shows your status under the "Members" section, and people who only have 2 posts are palace members!

??? ??? ???
Please help!!

Palace Member is generally reserved for either people who have been working with us for many years or those people who have demonstrated a long term use of the forum and contribute alot.  It is something that Bob and/or I decide on ourselves.

That said, there is a glitch in the software that no one can seem to debug, that some registered users still can't see all of the forum sections. The only cure seems to be if I make them Palace Members. So a user has a problem seeing the "General" section of the forum, they can ask me to fix that, which I do by making them a "palace member". So, either, the person with only 2 posts is someone we have known for a long time, or they wrote me as they couldn't see that section.

Why?
I really am asking, I'm not being sarcastic...Lol

Yet another question, why/how does a thread qualify to become "sticky"?


???

Why?

It seems there have been a lot of new users as of late who are doing everything but reading the rules. If they will at least take fives minutes out of their time to watch this, maybe they'll learn some internet etiquette before making the boards any more messy then they already are.

Making it a sticky will have it at the top, where most new users will see it and click it, that way, general rules are outlined. So my question is.. why not?

Haha, I LOVE that little video, and I too wish I had seen it before I started posting (quick and simple) wow, after seeing it, I have come to the conclusion that I was a poster's worst nightmare.

I agree, everyone should see this just to avoid "stickiness" of any sort...

Great, Laura Mabee! I laughed a lot reading it, and of course I learn a great deal too. I will think TWICE before posting or starting a new thread.
