Runboard Membership Explained


Runboard is a message board community, not just one site that hosts just one board, or a collection of sites that host one board each.

Think of it as one big site that hosts thousands of message boards.

So, when people register for a Runboard account (aka username), they become a global member of Runboard. That means they can go to any unrestricted message board in the Runboard community.

NOTE: no one can post anywhere on Runboard unless they are a member of Runboard (ie. they have a Runboard account/username).

BUT they don't become members of any board until they meet the membership gaining requirements of that board. In most cases, they have to post once to become a member.

Other membership gaining requirements are shown HERE

The usernames you see in "Who's Online" at a board are Runboard members but they are not necessarily members of that board.

Types of Membership

Everyone starts as a basic member, which gives them access to most Runboard functions. They can post, create a board of their own, have access to Runboard personal messaging, add their own avatars/signatures etc. And unless they are visiting a Premium Board, they will see advertisements (but no pop ups).

For a small annual fee, you can upgrade to become a Premium Member. That enhances existing features (eg. bigger post size, bigger inbox) and provides extra features, such as invisibility, new message notification and no advertisements.

The differences between basic and Premium memberships are listed HERE

To upgrade your user account to Premium for one year (USD 10, no recurring billing) please go to your Control Panel and click the "Upgrade my account" button.
