As a new member on icmag.com, you have a limited feature set until your account is upgraded to member. The requirements to become a member may vary from time to time.
Here is the current feature set for members:
New members can post in most forums and we encourage you to do so, as that is how you become a full member. If you don't contribute to the site you will never get full member access.
cannot start a Social Group,
cannot send PMs to our members,
cannot give out reputation,
cannot use our chatroom,
cannot add a custom avatar,
have more limitations on the the number and size of images they can post,
and are subject to other minor limitations.
If you want to participate in these features that are blocked to new members, you can become an ICMag supporter and get full access (better than member access) to all icmag features. We will be announcing how to do this very soon...
So please don't create a new thread to complain about not having full member access when you have just signed up as a new member. Thanks!
