Default Ideas for the Mods

As if you didn't have enough to do...

I am a recent reject for being gifted, but didn't know it, or know why. On another thread Sn0w was kind enough to point out how to find out what my status was by checking the User Control Panel. Since I'm fairly familiar with internet message boards I was able to find it and see where I went astray. But a lot of the members here are not quite as experienced and several other posters after me asked what the UCP was and where to find it!

Also, I have honestly tried to be a productive, encouraging member of this forum. I am struggling to distinguish between fluff and relevant posts. However, my request for being gifted was denied because my posts lacked relevancy and content. It strikes me that others are in the same boat, or that they will be.

So given these two factors, perhaps another guidance thread could be started and posted as a sticky or whatever you call them here? Could the mods describe how to find the User Control Panel and what to look for a few days after the initial post requesting gifted status? Could you post how long one should wait and how many posts one should attempt before reapplying? Could someone show us examples of "fluff" posts and relevant posts? You have my permission to quote any posts I have made that are fluff and any that I have made that are relevant. Or you could paraphrase them. I'm willing to look stupid in order to help others avoid the mistakes I have made.

Please try to understand that I am not criticising, just trying to clarify the system here. Becoming gifted seems to be an arcane process at best. I'm sure many others would appreciate a little more light being shed on the subject. Thank you for your consideration!

Don't worry, I had to post 3 or 4 times before I became gifted. Just give it a couple of days, making sure to be active on the boards, and then try to apply again

I am not a mod, but I have gone what you are going through!

Well. Here are some pictures to help you get through! First, click in the User CP area, it is circled in red.

Click the image to open in full size.

Then, click on User Profile, last on the list that pops up. (By the way, you click on the arrow next to where it says User CP.

Click the image to open in full size.

Then you see all your information =]

I have read thru your posts - only to see if I could help you out quoting a 'fluff' post. While I am not a mod either - I see that you have posted on a lot of polls. Don't quote me, but I believe that those posts are not counted. That may be where the 'lacks revelancy' comes in. I personally didn't see anything 'fluffy' - but again I am not a mod, so maybe they are just referring to the quick comment/answer posts. I believe they are looking for posts that really add something to the threads, not just chit-chat. Not that this isn't welcomed and encouraged here, just that it wouldn't count towards earning your Gifted Status.

The only other thing I can tell you is that due to the overwhelming number of new members, WI really strives to be a safe enviornment and keeps re-evaluating the requirements.

It may seem really hard to wait right now, but as a gifted memeber who has had nothing but great trading experiences, I appreciate the strict requirements. With so many new members I have become a little more careful with where I chose to post for trading. I prefer to wait until someone has a few trades under their belt first. Not because I don't want to trade with them, just because I want to make sure they get the hang of it before I jump in as I am fairly new myself. Even tho people read and agree to the rules, you still will find people making mistakes in their GE's when they first start off. Makes me wonder if they actually read the rules, or just scrolled down to the bottom to apply for status. Just keep doing what you like to do, reading and responding to threads and I am sure in no time you will achieve the highly sought after Gifted Status. Good Luck and I will keep an eye out for a GE from you in the future!

This is true. Post everywhere. So, they know that your feeling good in the forum . Also, posting more might help you become gifted.

I became gifted just two days after applying my first time. I have two theories about why it happened so quickly and easily for me:
1. It was a slow day for the mods.
2. I took my time; I was a member for almost a month before i reached 50-post status. I never post "Me too! I know what you mean!" kinds of posts; I always try to elaborate or to add something extra to the discussion. I post on a wide range of forums (forii????LOL). I always spell-check and give the grammar and syntax a once-over before I hit "Post."
And, most importantly, I enjoy WI and I think it shows.

You obviously enjoy WI; you write nicely and you have a lot of pals on here giving you great advice.
You'll be gifted in no time!!!!
