Update - The Elite Members group is inactive at the minute. Since upgrading the forum, most of the old benefits no longer apply. Sorry.
Now part of this forum is a little reward scheme for our "really" active members. When you get over 1000 posts, you become an elite member
But what does an elite member get? Well how about:
-NO adverts. At all. Anywhere. (Sorry I cant do this for everyone, but I have to pay enough for this as it is )
(Everyone has this now)
-Your own private forum, which no-one else can get into.
-Your own special badge, showing your new status.
(The forum no longer has badges)
-50% more PM storage space.
-Flood delay time halved.
-Ability to edit your own thread title's and descriptions once they've been posted.
-Can add events to the calendar.
(We don't use a calendar anymore)
-Can use basic HTML in their posts.
(No longer needed with all the nice bbCodes!)
And yes, the moderators count as elite members
(Because they're just so awesome
