Just out of curiosity, can someone participate in the forums unapproved members can see without actually going through the application process?  Is there an expectation that everyone will go through the process to gain full access?

Why would anyone want to remain indefinitely without editing privileges?

I don't know :)  I ask because I noticed someone was participating in the social threads (other than the Doormat) who hadn't posted any sort of Introduction, and it occurred to me that I don't know if that's a requirement.

People who go inactive can wander back and take some time before getting round to intro stuff again. ;)

Oh!  I didn't realize someone could be put in Unapproved status once they'd been approved. :) 

Thank you.

Approved status is not revoked (not to Unapproved, at least). But not everyone sticks around to the end of the process. :-)

OK, but wouldn't their past posts show up if you looked at their profile and clicked on "Show Posts"?

Yes. Depends, though, how far back you want to look. :-)

There's only one page of posts, none of which are an introduction, and the person appears to have just registered a couple of days ago.

Well, everyone in their own time. :-) Nobody stays in the anteroom forever, but it's up to them whether to move inside or away.

This particular person is already posting requests for writing partners as well.

So long as their writing request follows site rules and the rules of the area they have posted it in, I don't believe there is anything wrong with that.

I wanted to clear a doubt ...  As of now im Unapproved so what more
should I do to get approved . I just joined today and I've already given
my Introduction but as of now there are no replies, do I have to post
more ??
Also I've been playing the forum games which is fun, is it ok if I
continue playing even if I'm not approved?
Jus one more thing how does one get banned ?

Lilias

You need to check your intro thread regularly and interact with the people who post there. :-)

The Introduction Thread and Approval Policy explains all that needs to happen for approval.

Right now, as an unapproved member, you have access to the Non-Adult roleplaying area. Content in that area should be PG-13 or cleaner, meaning that content must be appropriate for someone under the age of 13 to read and should not contain sexual content. At this point in time, you only have access to the Non-Adult boards. The boards for Adult RP are accessible if a member is approved.

HighKing23

ok Thanks  .I will wait then till I get approved

HighKing23

I was wondering if it is ok for me to reply to a roleplay request  by telling them i wanted to join them as I get approved ?

Unapproved members are not able to post in the Adult Roleplay Request boards.
