Title - Registered Visitor 'Titles' - What is and isn't allowed
If you put in an 'Avatar', it will look something like this (my custom user title is 'Your Elsmar Cove Host'):
The forum software is based on 'permissions' which are defined for each 'user group'.
Until you have 10 posts as a Registered Visitor there are some restrictions in accessing some aspects of the forum software. One of these is your Forum 'Title' will not be editable.
Every Registered Visitor with 10 posts in forums where posts are counted (posts in 'business' forums) is auto-magically 'promoted' to the "Involvement Access - Posts" user group. At that time in your UserCP > Settings and Options (in the left sidebar) > Edit Your Profile Details
link you can set a 'Custom User Title' which will appear under your name on each post you make.
1. Religious or political 'statements'
2. Email address
3. Company name
*NOTE 1: A Company name *may* be allowed in some circumstances. Please understand the intent, which is to limit advertising (self promotion) by individuals (such as consultant or other 'sellers'). Some people are grandfathered in as of the date of this policy being established as decided by myself and/or the moderators.
*NOTE 2: When someone has a sufficient number of posts, say over 100, in which they help people with answers to their questions, the person *may* qualify to put in their company name. The Moderators and I reserve the right to make any determination or whether a person has earned the privilege of putting their company name in as their User Title. Anyone who wants to use a company name as their User Title *MUST* request approval
4. Web Site name and/or URL
If in doubt, please ASK
