    I've been part of this board for awhile, but never really introduced myself... I comment sometimes and stalk you all a lot. tee hee I'm wondering what I need to do to become "a regular here"? does anyone know? I thought I read about it once, but now I cant' find the thread. I was hoping to clean out my stash, but realized I can't until I change my status...
    But anyway, I'm Rachel, been quilting for about 6 years, taught basic sewing techniques by my dear Gma, that just recently passed away, but it was something she taught me that I will always cherish. Now I have great friends that quilt and teach me as we go... tee hee Its awesome. I always knew I'd quilt, just took me awhile to get started, now I'm hooked and I don't think I'll ever give it up... PS You all are great on this site!!! So much love and warmth from everyone, its a true blessing to have found you all.

    Hi, and welcome from Southern California. There was something recently on status - it has to do with how many posts you put in. It changes automatically when you reach that number.

    Hi and Welcome from Northern Indiana !
    The only way to get the frequent user is to make posts and after awhile it just automatically happens. Is that the status change you were wondering about ?

    Welcome!

    A regular is someone who has posted 20 posts in two weeks, I think. If it really matters, you could ask Admin.

    Glad you decided to come out and play!

    By the way, where in Iowa are you? I have lived in Spencer and Cedar Rapids, among other places.

    to learn all the ins-and-outs of board policies, procedures, and etiquette, start here:
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-30553-1.htm

    "a regular here" -- at least 20 posts during two weeks up to date (assigned/removed automatically).

    if you aren't normally a chatty member, we wouldn't want you to force yourself to comment for the sake of numbers. i have to say, though, that since you're started joining the conversation you've contributed marvelously. i hope you'll keep it up. :thumbup:

    please feel free to post your offerings in the classified section. make a note in the opening post "exception granted by moderator PatriceJ."

    (as an added note to others who might be reading this topic, i offer the "advice" that we also wouldn't want somebody posting meaningless comments just to run up enough numbers to qualify for selling things. :thumbdown: )

    Why do you have to be "A regular here" to get rid of some of your stash? I'm confused! Lol, I'm a bit new myself! :oops:

    It's not only a 'trust' issue, if we don't know you, how do we know that you'll follow through and send what we've paid for?....but also one of Admin spending the money to provide us with a community, only to have someone take advantage of that provision by only coming here to use the boards to make money. (DISCLAIMER: I don't actually know that Admin looks at it that way...but I would! ;) )

    Ahh... that makes sense. I kind of figured it was something like that, but wasn't sure. Thanks for the answer!

    Thanks PatriceJ for the info and for allowing the exception. But chiming into the conversations is fun too. tee hee
