What does it mean to be a "Limited Access User"?
There are 2 types of membership status here at JWTalk: Full Access and Limited Access.
When a new member registers to be a member of our community of Jehovah's Witnesses, he is automatically placed in what we call Limited Access. Only a few of the features and privileges that Full Access Users enjoy are not available to them. Of these, the most notable one is that they are in moderation, and any comment they make is held in the queue, until a moderator has first read the post and approved it to be published to the community. Comments made by Full Access Users appear immediately on the board without moderator approval.
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 our community.
A Full Access User who continually violates the terms of the JWTalk Community Membership Policy may be placed back in Limited Access mode by any moderator to prevent him from freely posting offensive comments to the board.
How can I become a Full Access User?
Wait patiently, and participate freely and often. The Staff 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 within the JWTalk community in order to establish some history with us.
If you feel that you have been overlooked, you can post a topic in the Confidential Talk with the Moderators area. This area let's you communicate issues of concern between you and the Staff only.
Remember, being a "Limited Access User" does not prohibit you from posting and replying in most areas of our community.
I was bad and I am sorry. How do I get my Full Access privileges back?
This is determined on a case by case basis. Again, you can post a request in the Confidential Talk forum and discuss this with the Staff.
