Rookie Users - New members

New members will be considered rookies until they have been members for 90 45 days AND have 15 posts. There have been restrictions imposed on "rookies" due to numerous problems. At that time they are promoted to full registered status. Additional posting permissions and UserCP options are automatically added at that time.

Rookie Restrictions*
Posting
NEW threads can not be posted in these forums, you may only reply to others:
Trade Rumors
Fantasy Talk and Hockey Video Games - if you registered just to use our site to recruit for your new fantasy league, you're not welcome.

The Lounge - no posting
Political Discussion - no posting
Poll permission is off in most forums.

UserCP
Usertitles are disabled.
Username change not permitted.
Signatures are only available with an annual paid sponsorship.


Site Rules - bans
The probationary period for will remain at 90 days for new members . All bans for new members are permanent. If you can't last 90 days here without getting banned, you're not welcome.

Those who registered before this went into effect are credited with time from their registration date.


* Becoming a sponsor will bypass the Rookie Restrictions.

edit 6-28-08: probation period reduced to 45 days + 15 posts
