What is Limited Account Access Mode? 

There are 2 types of membership status here at JWTalk Forums: Full Access and Limited Access. 

When a new user registers to be a member of the forums, he is automatically registered as a Limited Access member. A few of features and privileges that Full Access members enjoy are not available to them. Of these, the most notable one is that any post they make is held in queue, a temporary waiting line, until a moderator has first read the post and approved it to be published to the board. Full Access members posts appear immediately on the board without moderator approval. There are a few other differences as well, but not many. 

The purpose of this, of course, is to prevent unqualified individuals (i.e. non-witnesses) from registering accounts and posting their thoughtless parroted gibberish to the forums. 

A Full Access member who continually violates the terms of the Forum Membership Policy may be placed in Limited Access Mode by a moderator to prevent him from freely posting offensive comments to the board. 

How can I obtain a Full Access membership at JWTalk? 

Wait patiently, and participate freely. The moderators will determine your eligibility after a you have been a member for a specific period of time and have made a specific number of posts to the Interchange Forum in order to establish some history with us. 

We will greatly reduce the number of posts required from you for consideration if you submit a photograph of yourself holding a current copy of Our Kingdom Ministry and Organized to do Jehovah’s Will. The date on the Kingdom Ministry must be clearly visible in your photograph. This photograph needs to be sent to...

Please do not post your picture in a reply to this topic. 

Some individuals will take such a photo and make it their avatar picture. While that is nice, it still needs to be emailed to the administrator. The moderators do not necessarily read each and every post and may miss your photo or not realize your intent and desire to expedite your receiving a Full Access account. The email is the best way. 

Also keep in mind that submitting a photo is no guarantee of immediate approval. The email account is not always checked on a daily basis, plus some discussion among the moderators will have to take place yet. Really, just be patient and participate freely. Limited Access is not prohibiting you from posting and replying in any manner at all, except in the Forum Games forum because of the nature of the games in there. 

I was bad and I am sorry. How do I get my Full Access membership back? 

This is determined on a case by case basis.

Is the 'Friend's' feature a not available to new (limited access) members?    I did not see a 'friend' button.

I don't know anything about a "friends" button. Where are you seeing this?

Wait, you mean in the profile area?

I believe that just has to do with sharing pictures you upload in your profile area. I don't know any who use it.

I don't think ANY of the moderators have the time to approve all your posts :nope:

I am for leaving it "as is".

I hope you will grant/make mine as a full access user. :)

How does this work with the Christian Life and Ministry since most of us are using digital media! Do we hold up our tablet with the current lesson and organized book?:)

Well, that is an old arrangement that currently doesn't make much sense anymore. Maybe it will be dropped or changed in the future.

 

In any case the best way to receive full access is simply participating in the forums so that we can get to know each other better. :)

Credit card information, birth certificate, a copy of your publishers card, recommendations from Bethel, signed by all members of the Governing body should grant you full access :P and your wife's permission to be here (if you have one)
