Every new member receives a PM with this basic information, but since Admins and Mods are inundated on a daily basis with requests by members for this information I am posting it again as an announcement.
Members must meet the following parameters for their account to have access to the Clearance Bin.
- Be a registered member for a minimum of 30 days
- Have a minimum of 50 posts
PLEASE do not send staff a PM minutes after you have made your 50th post. Access is automatic and is handled by the forum software. It is not a manual process! The forum will handle this, access does not happen instantly but it generally happens with one hour. Please wait a full 24 hours before you contact a staff member to investigate your access.
Additionally, those who support the site through a Silver level (or above) Premium Member subscription have immediate access to the CB forums regardless of join date or post count. If this suddenly becomes abused* after the updated policies it will be removed as a subscription perk.
*abused = cases of people purchasing premium member sub's just to access the CB and swaplift.
