I have a question.. It's not really about official member, designer, promoter.. but please read. I don't know where else to put it.

When I go looking through the forums, I see posts from people who are "mentors" "design staff/ people staff/ etc... etc.." how did they become "staff" "mentors" "head staff" etcc etcc.. theres more, I know.. Just can't think of them off the top of my head. Do you understand what I'm asking? How did they become more than just "official ___"?

they get hired to be on staff. maybe if you are a good little boy, one day you will be on staff too. mellow.gif

No worries about inquiring about staff, since it's titles (I think) you are curious about, sort of.

Here's the cB FAQs thread, although please note that it is terribly outdated. However, it does go over the titles a bit to give you a general idea of what they each mean.

lmao you have to click show more profile boxes at the end to the left. Okay, i put the groups box right under my information, so it should be very easy to see even with out the coffe. wink.gif Its not a link to cB but it is a link to the cB group on facebook.

I tried adding a text link on my profile but it didnt allow HTML! cry.gif

Oh and im getting through college with the help of double caffeine coffee at my local circle K. happy.gif
superstitious
Haha, fair enough. XD

Oh My Gahhh! how long have i been official member?! i didnt even notice!

I know it was JUST updated, but 2 ppd minimum for Official Members?
rnicron
And that's why they put in place the 3,500 post rule.
superstitious
True, but the 1000/2 ppd combo isn't indefinite. So if you manage to get up to 1001 and then stop posting for whatever reason, you could lose your OM status since feasibly your ppd would be lower. The 3500 post rule ensures that regardless of your ppd, you have OM status indefinitely. Does that make any sense?
Oamazing
I used to be an Official designer.....what happened? stubborn.gif
superstitious
Hmm. My only guess is that after a certain someone removed everyone a while back, you were never switched back. I went ahead and changed you back to Official Designer. =)
Oamazing
ahh thats what I thought, thank you very much thumbsup.gif

I have two other usernames that I don't ever use - is it possible for me to combine them to the one I'm on now? I've got over 3k in posts and at least 2ppd for one of them. And if you look at my activity for the past month on this username, I post more than 2/day.

< wants official member status back.

The answer is no. You must be a staff member to do what you have referenced.

Please send me a PM that includes your additional accounts for a couple of reasons. One so that I can combine your posts, two because you are not supposed to have more than one account.

okay so I have some more questions, sorry, what are the perks of getting OM?
like whats so different from Om and regualr members, besides post counts
Tung
Perks of OM

- Elitism over everyone else
- VIP Lounge
- Colored Username of Forum
- No Flood Control

Yeah pretty much it.

Miss Hygenic said that No flood control was going to be taken away from OM and staff, oo but VIP lounge sounds cool:]
MissHygienic
I meant that they recently took away flood control for OMs and staff. We all once had to deal with it not too long ago.

All it means is that the link stays in place, like you don't remove it after you've been made an official member.

And Dani posted about the lower requirements here. =p

Yep. I posted that link since that is where you're supposed to apply. xD The reading through them part was for the link/group specifics. =)

If you want to add me, my MySpace is in my sig, so that I can see your MySpace.



lkajsfklajskds
i know, i saw that....now lol

ok, well i wont remove the link after i become om.

I'd like to apply for an official designer position. I put the link on my myspace profile, so what else should I do. I don't see an actual application in the post, so should I PM someone to tell them I'm interested?
superstitious
Hello there. =)

I sent you a PM, but basically it's asking you to post a link to your MySpace. XD

not a question about OM or OD or OP but whats member group duplicate?
I was browsing and saw that?
tokyo-rose
QUOTE(SkyliteX @ May 8 2008, 09:08 PM) *

They're multiple accounts made by members who already have active accounts. Making multiple accounts is not allowed (except in certain cases), so the duplicate usernames are placed in that group and cannot be used to post.
synatribe
also, sorry for the questions but can I switch from being oM to OD if my submissions go up?
tokyo-rose
QUOTE(doublehelix @ May 11 2008, 03:20 PM) *
You can. But OM's and OD's both have the same privalages.

Yeah, there's no difference between the perks that OMs and ODs get.
dispn0ygonekrazy
Can I still get my old account back that i uhh ask for deletion awhile ago, i had like 1K+ posts in there is it possible to get those posts back? and combine with this one?
superstitious
I don't see that being a problem. Would you mind PMing me your former username and approximate post count? =)
butre
Does the old 3500 post rule, where if you have that many posts, you have permanent OM status unless you get warned, still apply?
superstitious
Correct =)
synatribe
if I apply for OM, but later the requirements change and I dont meet the new requirements then do I lose OM?
