Thanks for this thread really useful and totally appreciate as a newbie. I hope to focus on the astrology side of LSA, but hopefully this information will come in use.

I love the beauty forums i joined for that also are you a long time lurker too?
Yes! I never signed up because I knew I would eventually get banned for cursing someone out lmfao but I think the craziness happens in certain forums so I'm trying to stick to beauty, fashion, health, true crime and the job/ceo sections

Long time lurker from 2019 . Although in 2012/2013 my friend and I were heavily addicted. I have it a rest cause I got busy with life. But happy to be back

What do I need to unlock to set my avi and make a post in this Intro subforum? Everything says "insufficient privileges".

edit- Avi is working now. Still can't make an intro post

site is on a new version and things are slowly being implemented. give the site another week to get its bearings before you reach out to the staff.

Finally decided to make a post after lurking for... FIVE damn years. I didn’t realize until I checked just now.

Anyway, hi. Welcome to all the other newbies!

Hi everyone. :sneaky:
@ethereal314, you've given me the courage to FINALLY step out after nearly 6 years of lurking as a member.

And thank you to all the fonts who've given me a few alleybux just for rating some posts whilst in hiding. :heart:
That was very sweet, unexpected, and made me feel welcome. I've put them in the bank for now, though. I've got 350 big ones in there baby! lol

Also, edit avi isn't working for me either. I had no problem changing it under the old format.

Edit: Well, now it's 398 alleybux. :cool: Thank you all!

Awww. Thank you, @mardiano. :heart:
I've lurked here for years too. Been terrified about posting here! I've known about this place since 2006 but didn't join until 2015.

And nah, I'm African-American. ADOS to be more specific, born and raised in Florida (no Bugs Bunny gifs, please), but I just like saying 'whilst' (the British version) rather than 'while' (the American version) in that context because it makes me sound all proper like. lol

I'm a bit of a grammar nazi and I DID notice that I forgot that comma before 'baby' in my first post, but I just let it go. This time.

4/23/21, Hello, I joined 4/2020. I truly don't understand the rules and requirements here. (1) the "rules" are not posted ALL in ONE place.
(2) When asked about The "rules" they are given in "pieces."

I joined approx 1 year ago. I tried to post a comment only to learn that I had to be a member for 2 weeks AND receive authorization from this site to post, OK, fine.

Now an entire year has passed, and I just found out in order to create a new topic or new forum "page," I must post 25 comments FIRST. Again, I have posted comments over the past year, but am only NOW learning that NONE of them "count toward the minimum 25," because they were not posted on the Newby page?

Btw, all of my posts are CIVIL, and NON PROFANE, so there is no issue there.

I have no problem abiding by "rules," but "rules," should be posted in ONE PLACE & not PIECE MEALED out so that people know "ALL OF the RULES" from the beginning what they need to do. Now an entire year has passed and there are some serious issues going on that a lot of people want to discuss, and I must BEGIN to acquire 25 posts only on one page, not the pages that I frequent in order for my posts to "be counted toward the 25 posts?" Amazing.

4/23/2021, So, let me be sure that I fully understand this, I must accumulate 25 minimum posts on "this Newby Page?" If, that is NOT correct, WHICH page must I accumulate 25 posts BEFORE I qualify to create a new topic or new forum page on LipstickAlley ?

Also, "Reputation System," is mentioned on the "Rules" Page, but not explained. Where should one "Lurk," to find this definition? Tyvm.

Hi LSA I'm a newbie with a couple posts so far. Sorry if someone asked this I didn't read the whole thread, but how do you change your avi on here? I looked at old posts saying to buy it in the alley mart but I didn't see it there or any of the cool fonts I see other people have. Is it because I haven't reached my 25 posts yet? Before the update I used to have the little emoticon under your username too that was like angelic, lurking, those things but now its gone. I tried doing this stuff on my phone snd my laptop cause I love personalizing stuff lol

anyways sorry again if someone already asked or if this is obvious. thanks!

yeah i think you need at least 25 posts...
4/26/21, yes, I understand the "minimum 25 posts" are required to start a new topic, or a new forum page, BUT WHERE do I accumulate the minimum 25? I thought that it did NOT matter WHERE you accumulate the 25 posts as long as they are posted anywhere on LipstickAlley. Apparently, that is NOT the case, but no one has told me SPECIFICALLY where or on what page that I need to start posting?? Tyvm !
