    Apple! I am sure you will be able to use the hatbox soon, so long as you actively participate in forums as it requires >50 posts to access the hatbox :)

    Thanks Ben for the improvement work.

    There may be a problem with us not allowed to edit posts with legit reasons though. Last year I provided some info in a post which I realised 2-3 days later was incorrect, so a correction was posted (but it appeared on a separate later page). Someone this year searched and started using the incorrect info, prompting me to revisit & edit it out instead.

    If we cannot edit our posts the same mishap may occur again.

    Sorry, this is meant to be with respect to the hatbox only - you should still be able to edit/delete your own posts if you have >5 posts.

    Just as a clarification thus far regarding gold stars: If you were awarded a gold star, I would have posted a message on your profile similar to "This is to certify that I, Mana, award you one gold star for your winning entry in the _____".

    Currently there are only active three gold stars on MSO (Bestintheworld, May, and myself... though the one I have is a bit redundant) unless one of the old members with a gold star from AGES ago comes back and chooses to redeem it.

    For those wondering when the next gold star is up for grabs, it can be found at http://medstudentsonline.com.au/forum/posts/299621/

    I agree, I think those with at least 100 posts should be able to have the ability to change/add sigs :)

    I would love to be able to give you this ability back, but I can't seem to enable it on the current xenforo software. I will look into it again this evening and see what I can do.

    I feel like this is exactly the two-tier system that I didn't want in the first place.

    Edit: I feel like this is the point where my gold star becomes non-redundant. @bennjamin - I would like to redeem the gold star for chatbox privileges for LMG.

    Someone can redeem their gold star for you to get your hatbox privileges back.

    @Mana : I agree with your comment to an extent but I think this also shows how much us, members love the chatbox and further supports my claim of 'chatbox is an excellent platform for social activities and that we love it'. :)

    Anyone with me?

    Thanks! :)

    Can the post requirement be lowered though? 50 is a lot for a forum that is not that active (which I know is the problem itself, but it's hard to reach 50 without spamming unnecessary posts) - especially when just something like 3-7 posts are made everyday in the entire forum.
