Trust me if there was discrimination it would have been against me long ago. But there isn't. I'm a full member and I suck.


No, no you don't suck.
Maybe a tad red neck but spending time in the sun does that a man.
We are all misfits here of one sort or another; a common bond.
Misfits like to explore... it's in their nature.

n00bies here need to worry less about getting their FM and read all the tutorials and pin ups.
Asking obvious Q's is redundant at best, lazy or trolling at worst.
Sometimes even after reading what you should the first week or two, the answers can not be found.
Things can get misplaced here, and even long time FMs need to ask, 'what/where the hell is it?'
The Rookie or regional forums, or a PM to someone you trust are the best ways for new members to get answers or test the waters. Or simply wait and keep reading as you will find what you seek.
Waiting is part of the fun.

Read as many threads/posts as possible; learn from others accomplishments/mistakes.
Don't repeat the mistakes... there's a lot of that already.
Then, contribute/participate with meaningful material and wit. Posting a flurry of posts at once and then asking for FM tends to go south; no one likes to be bum rushed.
Consistency helps your image.
You will be notice if you do, sooner then latter.
Remember out of sight, out of mind.

Learn from your mistakes; many members gotten their FMs after they screwed up bad at first.
More than one of PBed members have been reinstated after outrageous transgressions here including myself.
In many ways this is a very tolerant site, and people here will give you a lot of leeway to a point.
Be straight up with people here, be yourself.
Never lie when the truth would serve you better.
DO NOT create duplicate accounts; live with your mistakes and correct them the right way in time.
If you are sincere we can be very forgiving.

Lol, I still visit the rookie and tutorial sections. Always something to learn no matter how long you've been doing this. Unless you're Seph. He is exploring god.

I just had to look up an old tutorial for posting a photo a few minutes ago (I usually go through Flickr and hate posting those silly thumbnails the uploader defaults to). There’s a ton of awesome information in that rookie forum - in the pinned posts alone, but there’s a lot of hidden gems in the regular posts as well. I’d even venture to say that some of the very best and quality posts of all time live within the rookie forum.

As much as I want to show off some wit and be a smart ass, I’m leaving the second part of this comment alone, lol.

Abby Normal and Blackhawk both had some good stuff to say. As someone who got FM after 3 months or so, I can say that trying not to be an asshole definitely helped. I also waited for someone to recommend me, instead of putting myself up. I managed to meet up with people to explore within a couple weeks of joining the forum, so that was probably useful too. Of course, you should try to post quality content, but also get to know the people on here and become part of the community instead of getting angry. It kind of looks like the only time you engage people in conversations is when you're angry about something, and that can't be good for your FM chances. Meet up, talk to people, ask questions about people's experiences. The more people know you and trust you, the more likely they'll be to vouch for you.

I know someone that has a 10 Year Star and it not a FM.

He's a good guy, but he tends to be abrasive online. I should call him and rub it in.

Even a dead member can get their FM here if they rate it.
truth, it's happened.
This is a great site that remembers it's own.

I would never hold it against the moderators if they discriminated against a scumbag.

I've been a member on here since October 9,2010, and I've bitches and complained about being denied twice for full membership, but I've recently came a across a full member who has been on here a little over a year which makes me ponder about the moderators having favorites.

More then likely my profile will be axed, and if so it was good talking to you all.


How ironic and prophetic?

He went from Basic Member to Non-Member but not because of this post.

Posting spam and non-UE related girlie shots helps about as much as bitching and complaining about Full Membership.

RIP

Most of his posts were one or two words anyways. Maybe he expected to become a full member because he had such a high post count.

Best part is, in PM he told me "I never applied for full membership."

His PMs were... priceless.
He thought I was a mod at one point.

I guess if someone acts like an intolerable asshole, people get tired of tolerating it. Who woulda thunk it?

Well... 25 posts in 10 years, hardly any pics and your name history doesn't help.
That took 60 or less seconds.
