    Default Double Secret Probation Again?

    I wanted to attach an MP3 attachment to the Blues Brothers thread but it says I am not allowed to post attachments. What gives?

    Also, Brett (or anyone), I donated to the Links via Paypal last week. I even got the confirmation from Paypal. When does that kick in? All I really wanted to do was change the name above my avatar.

    Thanks,

    E.

    I'm not answering Elwood's question, but since I can't even start a new thread to post my own question, I'm posting my question off of his.

    I'm a new member. It says I can't create new posts or new threads. I don't see anything in the FAQ explaining how that works. Do I have to be a member for a certain length of time before I can start threads? Or how does it work?

    Thanks.

    Later: Found the answer in a thread: 20 posts and 2 weeks. You really ought to put that in a FAQ.

    How I'll wait until then, I don't know. I'll try to fit what I want to say/ask into existing threads, wherever it's reasonably connected to the thread topic.

    Thread wish: Music Direction We'd Like to See for the New VH (what types of songs, music style, etc.) Since I can't start it, maybe someone else will.

    I dont think the FAQ is customised to this board particularly, it's just the pretty broad one that comes with the forum software. Things tend to change and dissapear pretty quick around here anyway so the stickies tend to do their job and are easy to maintain. But point taken.

    As for the restrictions themselves, well it's a shame we had to implement that change at all, but it had to be done - the situation with 'newbie spam' was bad enough as it was, and with a new tour hitting the ground, it wasnt about to get any better

    As for your topic? Save it up dude, polish up a good post to kick it off and hit us with something fantastic when the restrictions come off! 2 weeks+20 isnt really that draconian, it'll fly by.

    As for Elwood, sorry mate, Brett handles all that stuff. Shoot him a PM if he doesn't respond here soon.

    Did you just give a donation, or did you do the subscription thing? How much was it for? I'll hook you up just let me know. Sounds to me like you didn't do it through the subscription thing which is why it didn't immediately make you a premium member.

    Brett, I'm looking at the receipt right now and it says "VHLinks Server Donation". It was for $7.50 to donations@vhlinks.com.

    Oh, maybe I was supposed to subscribe to the premium service thing? That was my intention, guess I clicked at the wrong spot. Well, I did donate though.

    LOL yes you were, then it does it automatically. A donation is separate actually. But I'm hooking you up now, so you'll be set in a sec. Thanks for the donation, BTW.

    Was just reading your thread about the Blues Brothers and the late great Belushi. God he was great!! His Joe Cocker tune was spot on.
