Member Group Update
« on: October 27, 2017, 09:07:11 PM »
Forum MEMBERS may belong to one or more "groups" some of which are based on the number of posts you make. The groups you are a member of are shown below your name on your posts.

"Guests" are visitors who are not a member of the PSR Tutorial. If you are a member, but you have not logged in, you will only have "Guest" priviletes.   Guests can only access five of the nine available board Categories. They can read all the messages in any topic, but they can not post a reply to any message or download (or even see) any attachments to the message. Guests can not start a new topic.

Registered members can view and reply to any message, start new topics, view and modify their profile, view the calendar, and view and vote in polls.

Some ranking groups are defined based on the number of posts a member makes:
 
  • "Reader" is a member who has never posted.
  • "Novice Poster" requires a minimum of 1 post (shown with 1 star). Novice members will be able to see the member list and view member profiles and add events to the Calendar.
  • "Junior Member" requires  minimum of 5 posts (shown with 2 stars). Junior members will be able to post polls and create their own custom title.
  • "Asst. Member" requires a minimum of 15 posts (shown with 3 stars). 
  • "Assoc. Member" requires a minimum of 50 posts (shown with 4 stars).
  • "Senior Member" requires a minimum of 150 posts (shown with 5 stars).

As of 28 October 2017 there were 2,928 Readers, 864 "Novice" posters, 456 Junior members, 351 Assistant Members, 246 Associate Members, and 245 Senior Members.

Some groups are defined by the administrator and members added individually.  These include "Charter Member,"  "Supporting Member," "PSR Performer", and  "PSR Professor".

Charter and Supporting Members (5 stars). Charter Members (those who  provided support to the PSR Tutorial in its very first year) and Supporters (those who have ordered one or more of the available collections or made a donation at some time) have the same permissions as Senior Members.  These groups all have access to the special "Charter Members" category of boards.  As of October 2017, there are 38 Charter Members and 480 Supporting Members.

You can become a "Supporting Member" by ordering one of the available PSR Tutorial Resource Collections, the primary means of "support" for the PSR Tutorial.  If you have done so, but your forum userid is not marked as a Supporting Member, just drop me a note and let me know.  I know the names of all supporting members, but I don't necessarily know what user name you have selected for the forum.

"PSR Performer" means the individual has their own page PSR Performer page on the main site.  PSR Performers provide midi files and mp3 files for the enjoyment of others and, as such, they also "support" this site so they, too, have all the permissions that Charter and Supporting Members have.

"PSR Professor" is restricted to those members who are particularly knowledgeable in their area and have several thousand posts. There are 3 PSR Professors.

"Global Moderator" is for those members who help to moderate all the boards in this forum and review member applications. They review the posted messages to make sure members adhere to the rules and guidelines for participating in this forum.  There are 11 moderators.
