    Exclamation New Member Restrictions? Confused.

    I am new here, and if I missed the recommendation to read an FAQ I apologize. I am not able to mess with my profile, or message people at all.

    Is this normal? I just wanted to ensure that I did not do something wrong.

    Thanks for any assistance.

    We welcome new members, and ask that all members read and follow these few Rules.
    .
    1. There is absolutely NO posting of lists by steroid sources or dealers. However, if someone says for instance john doe has test for $65 that will be allowed...

    *Usernames that are source names will be allowed.
    *Usernames that are source reps will be allowed i.e. johndoerep
    *If someone sources so be it as long as it is not openly done on the board with a list being posted.
    *If a source check is given and you get scammed that is your problem sources go bad everyday no one can say when it will happen or if it will happen.

    .
    2. We have a strict NO FLAME POLICY. If you post harassing other members, while offering no helpful or useful information, This includes PM's, we ask that all correspondence between members and/or staff be respectful. You don't always have to agree, but you do always have to show mutual respect.
    .
    3. There is NO posting of pornographic pictures or messages. This includes pictures in your AVATAR, as well as links to pornographic websites. We have quite a few female members that reside on A.R., and we intend to offer them the same environment as we do the male population here.
    .
    4. You should be at least 18 years old to be a member here.
    .
    Please DO NOT have avatars that are religiously, politically, sexually, etc. offensive in ANYWAY to ANYBODY.
    .
    Just a quick note: As a new member you are not able to PM or view profiles until you have reached 50 posts.

    These rules are for our benefit and yours.
    Any questions concerning them please feel free to contacts us...
    Thank you ~ AR-Staff

    Hello yes I downloaded the mobile app on android. I don't know what I am doing wrong I can't even say hello in the new members area unless I comment on someone else's post. The profile part for me is locked but maybe that's until I have 50 comments not sure about that either. I am trying to get some advice and input I want to stay safe and smart about what I'm doing and this seems like a great place for that.

    Ok that's what I was hoping. What about not being able to say his as a new member on that page or start a thread, is that something that you can only do once reaching 50 posts?

    You should be able to post a thread regardless of your post count, sometimes the spam filter picks up certain words and stops it being posted, hopefuly admin can help you further, but you should be able to start a thread

    @admin, ive seen this issue a lot, and i wonder how many people have signed up, cant post due to whatever reason and just bugger off

    We could be losing a lot of potential forum members due to the spam filter or whatevers causing it

    I'm sure if others are having the same issue that it's a strong possibility. Thing is I have been reading lots on here and there is a a lot of very knowledgeable people who I would love to get some advice from. I can't even post in the new members section. All I can do is comment on random posts or hope admin sees this and contacts me or maybe try pm one of them when I hit 50 messages. Otherwise I don't know what else to do.

    I'm new member (with < 50 posts) and I can confirm that we can make new posts, no problem there. However, I have not been able to view my own profile. I understand wanting people to be around a for a while before they go peeking on others but it'd be nice to view our own though. Maybe I missed something though?

    You should be able to view your own.... and it is 25 posts now with the update...

    You should be able to post however with no issues...

    I do note that we have had a few glitches to the activation of late that I think are taken care of and then they come right back... also avatars have been an issue since the update... the tech is aware...
