I'm a newbie and that's probably the problem right there! I tried to click on the author of a post and was greeted by an error message that said something like, "Many apologies, but you can't view just any profile."

How do I view the profiles of other posters?

Thank you!

Hi,

You won't be able to view profiles until you have fifty posts. At that time you become a poster/member.

Welcome to the board!

Ok, this helps.  I was wondering why I was being kept away from the other profiles!

It's a safety feature for our members, africakid.  It keeps spammers from being able to log on and get into our member's profiles -- spamming them through the information that's there.  We have that restriction in place to protect you and everyone else on this board.

I'm glad to find out about the "50 post threshhold" too.  I was starting to wonder, "is it me?"

It is also motivation to start posting more, if you think about it...I think I've got 47 more posts to go before I can view others profiles!

Now I'm a poster and I still can't view a profile.  Oh well.  Maybe it just takes time to kick in.

Just FYI JIll C-  the other night I used the expression In the Know with my 10 year old and he corrected me by saying "You can't be in a know, Mom.  Know isn't even a noun.  Geesh!"

Just thought I'd share after seeing your post.  LOL

It has to be changed by an administrator. This is a safety feature so that somebody (like a spammer) can't just post a lot and automatically be changed.

Do I need to send a message to someone to get it changed?

Okay...so I'm at 51 posts, but I still can't access profiles.  What's up with that?

Any ideas?

Hi Thomas,

I'm in the same boat as you (were?). I think a mod has to change it for us once we reach the magical number of 50 posts and we've been here for a month.

Am I right? Hope so! I'd like to see what all the fuss is about.  :eh:

Kim,

I think you're right.  About a day after I hit the magical 50 mark, I could see the profiles.  Makes tracking down my favorite Blue Boarders easier.

I wonder what happens after 100 posts???

Hello,

I've done 58 posts and have been on the boards for several months.  I can send personal messages, but I still can't view profiles.  Help, please?

That's because each person has to be personally assessed by one of the administrators before they are allowed profile privileges. It's not done on a daily basis, and I've been sick the past week, so haven't done any for several weeks now. You should be able to view the profiles now, ekm. :moose

Hi Verla! I hope you're feeling better.  My number of posts never changes, even though I've been posting for a while. Can you fix that?

Patrice:

I can't find the link, but are you primarily posting in non-writing areas (good news, that stinks, off-topics)? Only posts in the sections related to writing count and usually when you reach the 50 mark you get access to the other boards (I didn't even realize the others were there until I received my message saying I was granted member status).
 :paperbag  :giggle

Hope that helps,

Hmmm, I've been over 50 posts for a couple days now but I don't think I'm able to view profiles yet. Am I missing something or is there something else I need to do?
