'why cant i use like?' 'why cant i use a signature?' gotVirtual features are unlocked to those that participate. here is a breakdown of the existing usergroups and what they are made up of. new arrival - the initial usergroup. all new registrations to gotVirtual start in this group. this group is a bot-trap. new arrivals are not expected to spend much time within this group. new arrival may: post and reply to threads post and reply to profiles post status updates initiate conversation with up to 1 recipient per conversation inhabitant- members must make 3 posts and accrue 10 likes to enter this usergroup. inhabitant may: 'like' content (posts, profile comments) upload attachments view moderation notices set custom user title initiate conversation with up to 3 recipients per conversation inhabitant II- members must accrue 66 trophy points to enter this usergroup inhabitant II may: initiate conversation with up to 5 recipients per conversation have a signature change username once per 180 days choose a mood inhabitant III- members must accrue 159 trophy points to enter this usergroup. inhabitant III may: initiate conversation with up to 10 recipients per conversation create albums, and upload images to their user albums more usergroups and permissions will be revealed in due time... *a technical sidenote: trophies are awarded via a cronjob that runs every 30 minutes. a person that has achieved the requisite goals to earn a trophy may have to wait as long as 30 minutes for the trophy to become active and the usergroup change to occur. vigorous debate of this policy is encouraged, but under no circumstances should the thread be derailed or used as a venue to deride one another. let us make this more clear: the MCP will not, under any possible circumstances, tolerate off-topic commentary or ad hominem exchanges within the threads it initiates.
