Why we have a Advanced Nember Section on Philippines Addicts?
We have a advanced member section to give members an area to post juicy photos in a section that has limited access, therefore reducing risk of the photo's being accessed by the wrong people, its just an extra barrier for privacy.
How Do I Become a Advanced Member on Philippines Addicts?
Philippines Addicts Moderators/Administrators review the posts made by each Member prior to them being elevated to the Advanced Member level. A review will automatically take place after a Member has reached 50 quality posts and a decision will be made by the Administrators / Moderators whether your posts merit being elevated or not.
This is not being done to punish anyone but rather to increase the amount of intelligent and meaningful content being posted on the forum and to tone down the amount of one word and one line posts which are being made with the specific purpose of getting to the next level.
It is still acceptable to make a short post to congratulate someone, wish them well, thank them for their post or pictures and other such things for which a shorter post may be appropriate but in order to be elevated some significant posts must be made which offer new content to the forum and some overall knowledge of the Philippines in general. It doesn't matter if you have been to the Philippines once or hundreds of times, you still have something to contribute!
It is hoped that this policy will encourage more Member participation on the forum and lead to more of the Members being active in ongoing discussions.
The Administrators/Moderators may also decide to elevate someone early if it is determined that their participation and postings are of an above average level and warrant it.
Members who are being reviewed/awaiting review will show as Member + in their profile under Group.
What Are the Benefits of becoming a Advanced member?
You get more privileges such as bigger inbox, unlimited picture attachment space and many others.
Able to access the more juicy pictures and threads, as of February 2016 there is about 150,000 extra threads.
Elevation to Advanced Member will still gain you access to all of the Advanced Member forums as well as unfettered access to the picture gallery which is now at over 18,000 exclusive Philippines images and videos.
Tips to Speed Up Being An Advanced member.
Some of the best ways to get yourself noticed early are by submitting trip reports, bar and hotel reviews. Posts with photos are always regarded more highly than those without and a friendly, congenial and helpful attitude towards other Members is greatly appreciated by all.
Anyone who believes that they are worthy of an early promotion is free to ask in this thread at any time and their posting history will be reviewed.
When we review accounts, we look for decent posts, maybe a few topics you may have started.
You are likely to be flagged and rejected advanced membership for bumping lots of old topics, one line replies, abusive/negative comments, two user accounts, dodgy usernames that look like spam/trouble, large amounts of posts in a short period, poor English, pestering or impatience to get to trusted area. Getting flagged will not stop you being promoted to Trusted membership, it will just slow your progress down!
