    Keep contributing, helping the forum, posting good useful posts, and don't forget the "Thanks" option (bottom left of posts) for good helpful posts you see, and you as well as others will advance soon enough.

    * After looking over the suggestion box, and discussing with the RDF leadership, we have decided to grant access to the "Classifieds" section to those in the "Beginner" and up usergroups.

    I like this policy of openness with your forum users. A clearly explained user structure and how additional access privileges can be/or have been attained. I appreciate the openness. thx man. I hope that attitude permeates the forum and keeps users here for the long haul.

    Give it time my friend. If we gave everyone who has four posts advanced access, there would be no purpose to having different levels of access.

    Your welcome CJ.

    I understand the logic behind it but wow, the promotion program makes it difficult for a legitimate connoisseur of rd and cm to be a lurker. ha ha

    The purpose of different levels of access is to shield certain parts of our forum from unwanted persons such as law enforcement officers and lidar gun manufacturers.

    I believe it's also intended to promote interaction and contribution in order to gain access to more valuable content. Just hang in there, post threads and comment on other threads and you'll be there in no time. :D
