    You need to post maybe 10 or 15 posts before you can be off probie status.

    That's probie-status for you. Be patient and soon you'll be able to.

    Probie Status: posts need to be cleared.
    Re activation: the mails are defunct once you validate your account.If you weren't "valid" you wouldn't be able to post at all.

    Whilst you're on the Probie stage ,check out the threads in this section for pic-posting etc.That'll save you time later.

    Edit: I forgot to link you to the Welcome New Members! thread.

    Beware of the Cookies...and the bacon-obsessed.

    Well I activated the code now, should my messages be cleared now without mods?

    Nope looks like my account is flagged as a bot for some reason. Used the links: Action Required to Activate Membership for GateWorld Forum.

    Says it's active, but my posts are still required to be cleared by mods. Looks like it's broken.

    Please don't stay away - we welcome new blood with open arms (and not just for eatin' ).

    Thanks I just found out I can now post. I wanted to hold off encase I ended up double posting.

    Your posts were cleared.Did you read your intro e-mails or did they not go through to your In-Box?

    Edit/update: your post/my reply (Ask the Moderators)

    Really sucks, because I wanted to ask some interesting questions on the show and movie. But oh well... Just got to go somewhere else that has Stargate fans to be heard.

    Ranks don't really mean anything though, they're just a bit of fun.
    Ah, I see. Good to know! So that didn't take too long to get out of the Probie status.
    Thanks a lot for the information!

    So I'm a bit confused. I thought the Probie status was all about someone having to aprove your posts before they're visible. I also thought you weren't supposed to have access to your profile page as a Probie.

    But since a few posts ago this seems to have changed for me. My posts are now visible right away, I can edit my profile, give reputations, leave messages and everything. But I still have the "Probie" under my name. Is that an error and I'm actually finally off the Probie status? Or did the rules somehow change that you can do all those things after a few posts, even as a Probie?
