Frustration


I am trying to be a new member. I am literate and computer wise.
I find gaining access very complex; frustrating and a bit crazy.
I am accepted as a member with user name and password.
I am accepted on Runboard, confirmed by email; and have submitted an introductory message.
One question has been accepted from me, but I get email and messages I am not yet a member.
All this complexity is a meaningless farce – the Forum seems to be great but I am about to give up.
I have no intention for evil action; I wish no harm to anybody.
I am left wondering what is the need for all this complex nonsense, and no address for complain email.
Best Wishes from Dalmatian.

Re: Frustration


Hi Dalmation,

Are you talking about Australian X-Trail? It looks like you posted there 12 minutes before you started this thread. Are you still seeing messages that you're not a member?

I should probably warn you, the owner of that board might ask you to introduce yourself in their Introductions forum before anyone answers your question, like it says in their rules.

As Susa said in response to your other thread here last week:

Susa wrote:

Once the owner has approved you, you will need to introduce yourself in this forum: https://baustralianxtrail.runboard.com/f7

After that you can ask your question in the appropriate forum. It is a great board!



...and the "Forum Rules" pdf Jox followed up with in that same thread:

Let us know if you're still seeing those messages, and any other details you may notice, and we'll look into it for you.

Edit to add:

Did you try sending a private message to one of the board's admins? Every message board has them listed at the bottom of the main page.

Cheers!

Re: Frustration


I've seen comments from the board admin stating that board membership didn't automatically give access to some of the forums. So, if you're trying to get into a forum, and it won't let you, the admin needs to give you access in order to get in. So, that is who you need to get in touch with.

Re: Frustration


You need to first introduce yourself here: https://baustralianxtrail.runboard.com/f7

Otherwise you won't be able to post anywhere else.

Their rules say:

quote:

NOTE: All new users are required to make their first post in the
INTRODUCTIONS section of the forum to gain membership and have their
user-name added to the Members List. You will not be able to make a post or
ask a question anywhere else on the forum without making that first intro.
post. This is VERY important.
Your introduction post should include basic details such as:
1. X-Trail model type (if you have one)
2. Your location (Country and/or State and City)
3. Your first name.
4. How did you find our forum (i.e. search engine or word of mouth)



In their message to new members it says:

quote:


When your application form is approved, you will be notified by email and you will need to log-in to the forum and make your first post in the Introductions Section of the forum.

Re: Frustration


I am very rewarded by all the responses. Thank you all very sincerely. I have received acceptance emails for my membership of runboard, but there is no notification of separate user name or password from my original registration. I have completed an introductory post. I am more confused and frustrated if I require separate admittance to various sections of the forum. Thanks again; when time permits I may try to contact Admin. But I think I will try to join the UK mob. Regards Dalmatian
_______________________________________
I think I now know. After much time; hours messing about trial and error, you do not just enter text into the inviting message box; you first have to click above the box. I have been many times thrown out with loss of typing. I've been presented many responses; changed my pass word twice; last response was the above message does not exist even though I had an email pointing me via hyperlink to the message and could readily access the message via the hyperlink. So, I have finally found it on Q&A I hope. Regards Bill

Re: Frustration


I do not see that you have made an introduction post there, yet. Go here, https://baustralianxtrail.runboard.com/f7, and say hello and tell them about yourself. Then you can post all you want and people will see you and answer you.

AUSTRALIAN X-TRAIL FORUM is simply a private board within Runboard. You have been accepted there. Now, make that introduction.

Re: Frustration


You made an introductory post on your profile's blog. Your profile isn't a part of the message board you are wanting to post on.

If you would like to show us what you are doing so that we can help, Runboard is on Facebook. You can take a screenshot and paste it in a post on your page, then post the link here, or tag Runboard's page:

https://www.facebook.com/Runboard/

Before you take a screenshot, make sure there isn't anything showing that you don't want anyone to see, such as password, email account, etc.

Re:


Hello all,

I have found Bill's initial post on our forum, incorrectly posted into one of the Q&A sections, which I have now moved to the correct Introductions section.

Thanks for your help and understanding,
Kev
