IV. Post Count Member Groups


Every member of the forum belongs to a member group based on point count. A point is generated for every post a member makes. Member group is as follows


Newbie 0-50 posts
Jr. Member 51-99 posts
Full Member 100-249
Sr. Member 250-499
Hero Member 500 up.

Regular members are expected to be well-aware of the SP Parent Chat Rules. They should set a good example to the new members of the forum.
Post count is an automated system and does not recognize the quality of posts. Moderators have the right to delete topics and messages according to site policies which can reduce a member's point count or down grade of level.

V. Guidelines for Newbies

Welcome Newbies! Here are simple guidelines to get you going and avoid common Newbie mistakes.

1) We encourage everyone to join existing topics. We already have topics for common concerns about parenting. To know where to find it, use the search feature.
Type the subject you are searching for in english or tagalog, the example given is "primary complex". You may choose an option or leave it blank.
The next page will give you choices of what specific topic you want to join. Click your choice and start posting a reply.


If the subject you want doesn't exist then you may start a topic on a designated board.
Go to the main page of the forum, choose a board and click "new topic". Example: you want to post about "Office dillema". This should fall under "Just for Moms - The Balancing Act Career and Family"
.
Clicking "New Topic" will open a page where you can type the title you wish and post a message. Do not post in all caps for topic titles for reasons stated  here. In time, other members will reply and this will get your topic going.

2) Be specific on your topic. Refrain from using titles such as "help!" or "Need your suggestion please". To attract people with the same interest, expand your title to, for example: "help, baby has sleeping disorder" or "Please suggest good party venue in Pasig". This will get more attention from members who frequent that board of their interest.

3) Use the reply option instead of quote when replying to a message and specify the name of member you are replying to.
Using quote will copy the entire message and will make the thread look redundant.
You may use the quote if you wish to copy a portion (not the entire message) of another member's post. You will have to delete the rest of the message when composing your reply.

4) If you are in a business and wish to sell items or offer services, please post at the Marketplace Board. Multiple posts of your service/product on different topics to attract buyers is not allowed as this disrupts the good flow of the thread. For Newbie Sellers, please view the Guidelines for Sellers to avoid common mistakes. For detailed info about selling on the forum, please review the Parent Chat Community Rules about Advertising and Selling for more info.
5) We have existing topics on page, profile, how to post images and signature settings under House Rules / Questions and Suggestions. You may also click "help" for information on how to get started using the board, editing profile, posting basics and tools.

 
Detailed info on board features like BB Codes and terminologies are found the the System's website
http://docs.simplemachines.org/index.php?board=5.0
 
Remember, only maximum 3 photos may be attached per post and signatures has to be small (100 pixels maximum height). We are open to suggestions and comments. Please post it on Rants and Raves.

6) You may post in english, tagalog or taglish. We would appreciate if you type your words completely and avoid shortened words used in SMS (called textspeaks). Example: "mamaya" instead of 'mmy', "tulog" for '2log', etc.


7) Protect your privacy. It is your prerogative should you want to post photos of your entire family or tell your story. SP Forum is searchable on the internet and this is a fixed setting. Giving out information about your contact nos children's complete names, their school, your routine, lifestyle, job and contact infos can pose as a risk.

8 ) Do share your shout-outs as a newbie at the "I'm a Newbie"  thread. We'd love to know what you think. Again, welcome!
