Well, I do hope the forum is "cleaned up" regularly so that my posts are not lost in a sea of old ones. Keeping the topics lively will keep me posting!

Sounds like a good way to keep people accessing the website and submitting posts and contributing to the forum

Galabru-

I will be going away on business on July 12th. I will be gone for three weeks. Provided I have internet access while I am away, of course I will keep posting. If not, I will post as soon as I get back. I will be back for one or two weeks then gone again for three more (training for new system at work, and work doesn't use the internet for anything.) Once this is done, I will not have to go away for any more extended lengths of time for another couple years.

I wrote over 150 posts and I was full member for a long time ..
but...
I have been demoted last time:(
I was no posting only 3 days over the limit (63 days of unactivity)......
I had problems with net-connection in that period...is there any possibility to have my old status (with all my post written in the past) back? I hope it will not make to much chaos in this forum and I assure that it will make me happy and grateful.

@ cronenberg:

sorry mate, but the rules are very clear. if you were 57 days more over limit you would be demoted to new member. that's just the way it goes. i'm sure it will be no problem for you to gain your membership back.
don't worry, your posts (all 163 of them) are still there, but your post count was cut to make sure you'll appear in e-full members group when the time for re-evaluation comes. good luck.

@ dianara darkraven

have a nice and productive trip. don't worry about demotion, your status will be frozen

@ all others

if you find so hard to post once in few weeks, or you're busy, or going to vacation, army, business trip, or just simply going insane (like me last couple of weeks) and you're somehow unable to keep active at the forum for longer period, make a short announcement about your absence (and return). mods are humans, too, you'll (most likely) be understood, and it will prevent demotion.

now get in and contribute!

Smajsa,

Thanks! I will see you all soon. I leave tomorrow at the crack of dawn. If I have internet access, I'll report in soon!

Sincerely

[align=center] :sad2: [/align]51 Silver Members demoted due to inactivity!

If you are between them, please, do not post questions why and how. It's all in the rules. Also, do not ask about your counter, if you don't mind for the forum, then the post counter is also not important.

Instead of that, try to regain your status through participating in forum's life, try to contribute.

And remember, nothing is lost forever. Look at max099, she was demoted, then even deleted, and she's now a Gold Member.

Regards,

Yes this happend to me too. My computer broke and I lost my ISP but that is not important here. There are no excuses, just cold hard rules. Yesterday a judge cut my speeding ticket in half but that is the real world, this is cyber and man is it tough in here.

By the way, I begged, whined, offered bribes of gold and flesh but to no avail. Do not follow my path of despair and ruin. I now spend my days and, not a few nights, in the gutter too weak and despondent to even lift my eyes in hope of alms. I hope for a better day to come but not even the noon sun reaches my dirty cheek or shredded-rag covered body.

This would have worked on me - I'm so easily moved, especially by a lady.... Unfortunately, I'm not a Moderator here....

Cinders - you shall go to the ball again (or at the very least, Silver Section)

will i be demoted if not participate in time ?

I won't participate in most topics anyway though as you all might know allready

not the amount of my posts counts as well just the input of it should count
and i might put all in hold for some time not much time left because of my private life

but if i would be back to zero it would be zero for me as well
