If you've joined in the last couple of years, and have not posted much, or at all, its likely you are a Junior Member.
This limits your forum usage: There are features you cannot access until you are Registered Member.
You become a Registered Member by having a sufficient number of moderator approved posts in the Discussion forums.
Most of you have discovered that you cannot see images in posts unless you are logged in--which may even be why you joined in the first place. You may be the retiring sort who simply does not have a lot to say.
Here's our problem: We have a lot of folks in the database over a span of years who have never made a post. Sorting this massive database to clean it out based on log in dates or anything else is cumbersome. We are about to do some major housecleaning.
So, if you have an account, and haven't said anything for awhile---Speak UP. If nothing else, tell us who you are, where you are, and what unit you are a member of .
Because in just a little while, we are going to delete accounts with no posts. Even that little bitty electronic blip has costs to maintain it, and we are looking for ways to mitigate those costs.
Yes, this thread is a good place to post--as usual, Junior Members posts are moderated, and must be read and approved by a moderator before they appear.
