Suggestion - member status & what it means

Recommended Posts

I think that there should be a sticky about what all the different member status's are and what they mean. Like for example:

 

Noob: Recently joined forum or long-time member that doesn't post. Status remains at Noob until you make 150 posts in the forum. Cannot download attachements.

 

Jr. Member: Status received upon posting 150 times. Able to open attachements.

 

Etc, etc and so on.

 

It just might be helpful.

Maybe one already exists, but when you search for it there are a lot of posts about people who had issues.

I agree! There is a ton of helpful information on this site, but its a little overwhelming because there is so much. If I'm away for like 5 minutes there is suddenly 70 new posts... now what do I do? :-) It seems like there are so many rules... and I see a lot of "banned" posters.

 

The other thing I'd like to see is what various acronyms mean. Some are pretty obvious, but others are way over my head.

I had stumbled across this site and I have to say it has been the most helpful. It's nice to communicate with people that are having a destination wedding. It is a little confusing at first, but the more you are on here--the better it gets!

I'm still confused about a ton of things - what are the rep points? And the karma? And the vbux? I have searched and searched and can't find any explanation other than a few posts where people say that they don't think they mean anything . . .

You're certainly free to do the reasearch yourself. There are plenty of threads on these topics.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
