    Hey. I think I'm suck in newbie status. I can't add a signature or upload a avatar but I meet all the qualifications. I think I should be junior member or member by now, but I'm still a newbie.

    I emailed support twice but I have not heard anything back, and by reading the auto response email I don't think I ever will so I'm going to post this here.

    Could someone fix me please or explain what's going on. Is there some other qualification that isn't in the FAQ? :)

    If a mod or admin wants to delete this thread they of course can. I made this thread because I didn't figure they liked getting 100's of stupid PM's every day and I didn't want to add to their problems. Is not a feedback and support section for posting feedback and support questions.

    Like I said in the OP, I've already contacted support twice. I've also read the FAQ and the Sticky.

    I find this post funny just because you're stuck in newbies status too. :p

    Best of luck getting it fixed, the posting limitations on newbies accounts can be really frustrating.

    its some newbies here making a killing online my friend. Get what you need to make your IM experience successful. Share what you can. If your info is legit, we will know. For a true marketer that status symbol really doesnt mean ........

    You're not completely stuck as a newbie. You do have 3 stars.

    Well, it says that you joined may 2011, thats only 2 months ago, and therefore you are a newbie/newcomer no matter how many posts and other stuff you have made.
    The term itself doesn't necessary mean that you don't have skills, it just mean that you are new in here, and in fact that's what you are?

    If you wait some time, I think you would get out of your newbie status. You could also buy junior membership, the terms for getting it is written in the link here where you are able to buy/upgrade to junior.

    Highly doubt that, I usually overexplain :D I've had some very long threads (hundreds of posts) too.


    The FAQ and Stickies say 30 days and 50 posts. I am well past both.

    It's because you have not taken the test yet. You have to get a score of at least 60% on the test in order to remove the "Newbie" status.

    Good Luck!!

    It's not about that. A title is a title but it would be nice for other members to reconize me as more than fresh meat. I think I have contributited to this forum. I have given away ebooks, tips, proxies, studies, and freebies on my websites.

    I would just like to upload my own avatars and add a little quip to my signature so I can have more of a face here at BHW. I enjoy killing most of my free time here.

    You got it all wrong, what the dude is saying his account here is limited because of the newbie status and he feels like he should be moved up and have less restrictions, you can't post anything as a newbie here, which i find highly irritating. I can't tell you how many times I wanted to respond to someones post via pm like they requested in the post and I can't until someones made up rules are fulfilled. I find it kind of hipocritical of these type sites, on one hand they kinda represent freedom by letting us get products for free and on the other they impose restrictions based on status.

    It's restricted soley because of PM spam :)
    So blame the spammers, the rest of us enjoy not being spammed to death every time we open up bhw.

    Moan whine and complain about pesky 15 posts, even I made more than that and i don't post much.

    I think that Power Member is when you hit over 500 posts.
