Thought it might be an idea while all this is 'in-flight' if any juniors want to post a topic in here for gaming or OT that they cant start themselves? Prevents that awkwardness of PM'ing people.

Include a title and your post (make it well thought out), and a member may post it on your behalf. Hopefully it can serve as a pre-check on upgrading some people's status and distribute the content creation amongst people more :)

With the success of the switch and the ps4 strong sales do you think it would make sense? I already like the play anywhere of xbox and would love to play it in a form factor like the switch. So what do y'all say?

I'm actually a bit curious what being a "junior" member even entails. Is it just being a newbie on here? What do you need to graduate into regular member status, explicit staff approval? A certain number of posts?

Yeah that makes sense. I mean, I can see the appeal of a policy that tries to limit the number of stupid spam threads that get created by limiting based on post count.

I think you just need exposure by posting. Once a mod recognizes you he makes you a member. Since I'm a lurker I was a junior for a very long time.

This is it.

I believe that, if you are banned while being a junior, it's always permanent.

The other forum doesn't have junior member status. I think it's a good move since it could breed more insularity and elitism.

Hopefully, this place follows form.

I think that's just for the opening. I read the rules and TOS over there and it looks like once they have footing the junior status will be implemented, same as here no thread creation and bans are one and done. Not sure about exact requirements to become a regular member though, it may not be the 3 months and 300 posts.

I think the Junior label is gone, though. That's what I mean. I do think limiting thread creation makes sense from a moderation POV.

In the past it made sense. Now, not so much since OT isnt as active as before.

Oh okay, does make sense the limitations should exsist but the label just leads to hassles. You need to post 300 times to get rid of it, but that is 300 times people may not take you seriously not because of the post content but because your Junior.

I am a JR member..

Just wanted to vent for a second on something..


I have a 55 inch UHD Samsung curve tv (series 650D)..and I have a Xbox One S....

I am not seeing real, mind blowing HD yet on this tv...I put in wolfenstein 2 in and played it and the cut scenes look beautiful but the ingame part looks not so mind blowing..

What am i doing wrong? I have it plugged in the HDMI One port and tried to callibrate it, ect and it still is not blowing me away...

and i know under expert settings, i have used custom settings from trings, too...

It's making me mad because netflix on my tv with 4k doesnt even look ground breaking. But when i watch 4k youtube videos, it DOES look next level. So im like what the hell??? I want my movies to look like that!

It's quality not quantity......not that my very infrequent posts are quality, I'm usually beating a dead horse. I'll pry be a junior for life on here, I have just as much social anxiety on here as I do in my real life. Alcohol helps, like this very moment.

Wolf 2 is 810p on Xbox One S so things will be blurry especially on a 4K tv.

For the juniors, just look for threads that interest you and dont spam messages trying to get youe post count up.

Same. In the interest of building "goodwill", any chance for the junior status to be lifted by a mod?

Some mods would reactivate your topic creation process, but with how mods are and that we dont know who they are I wouldn't know how to help you now... before yes, now no idea.

You're actually close. I think it is actually 3 months and 300 posts because I hit 300 an age ago.

Blame Space was the only one who achieved Junior Junior Status.




That's when you're such a newbie that other newbies won't hang out with you. That's when Geocities and Club Penguin fandom makes fun of you for being pedestrian.
