I don't know how to get my PM's, to get a AVA, and make a SIG. I go to my User CP and I go to the "Edit Avatar" place and I can't change it. I can't find a SIG place... I don't know where to see my PM's!! PLZ HELP!!!

According to this thread, you have to be a member for 24 hours before you can have either of those.

maybe it has something to do with your level? i didn't realize there was a level where you couldn't get PMs... or maybe it doesn't show up till you get a PM? i'll send one to check.

Sarah, if you look at the top of any page in the forums when you are signed in, you'll see

Welcome Cat_Slave!

Within that box is a link to your Private Messages, and it will tell you how many you have and how many unread PMs you have too.

ok, i think i've figured it out. minors are not allowed to receive PMs. are you under 18?

i don't think you can change it. the prevention is there to protect you.

again - you can't do PMs because you're a minor. there isn't anything you can do. if someone wants to send you a message, they'll have to use your email. i saw that as an option when i clicked on your user name.

We do not allow members under the age of 18 access to PMs. That's for your protection. Changing your birth date will not change the settings.

I can't post in IMO and Caption This
post #20 of 27
Well, IMO is easy to explain: you need to have Adult Cat status (30 days/100 posts) AND you need to 18 or older.

Caption This? Hmm...probably a glitch in the upgrade process. You might want to post that in the upgrade thread (in Announcements) which is gathering such wrinkles all in one place.

ok thanks!

If you are trying to reply to a thread in Caption This and cannot, please report that. If you are trying to begin a new thread in Caption This, you will not be able to. That forum is sponsored by TCS. The new threads are started by the forum moderator (me).

If you have a picture to submit, see the instructions in the forum for doing so.

Oh ok lol! I was going to just post pics of my kittys I think I was at the wrong spot.

If you just want to post pictures of your cat, go to the Fur Pictures forum at the top of the Lounge.

Oh ok thats what I thought! lol! and I can't post in IMO
post #26 of 27
You have to be 18 to post in IMO. Sweetie, if you would take the time to read the forum rules and some specific guidelines in some of the specific forums, like Caption This and IMO, all of your questions would be answered. We really aren't keeping things a secret around here.
