Friends and contacts lists

Friend and contact lists can be both fun and useful. You can easily sent PM's with a single click to your group of friends, and see them more easily in the online lists as a + will display next to their usernames.

What is the difference between a friend and a contact?
A friendship is a mutual, two-way relationship between two users. It is initiated by one user and accepted by the other. A contact is a one-way friendship. This could be where the other person does not accept the friendship, a friendship request is pending, or you do not wish to be friends at this time but want to show them as a contact only.


Where is list of friends and contacts displayed?
Your friends and contacts are displayed on the 'Contacts and Friends' page in your User CP. Your friends are also displayed in your profile page.

How can I request a friend, accept a friend or break a friendship?
There are two ways to request a friendship with someone.
The easiest way is to view the profile page of the person you want to become friends with and click the 'Befriend' link.The other way is to add the person to your contacts first. Then from your 'Contacts and Friends' page ask to be their friend by checking the box next to their name labeled 'Friend'. Next, save the page.


If you know the username of the person you want to be friends with you can send a friend request using the box provided and clicking 'Add Friend'.
To accept a friend, go to your 'Contacts and Friends' page. At the bottom of the page you will see a list of pending requests. Check the box for the requests you wish to accept then check the 'Accept' button and save the changes. If you do not wish to be friends then select 'Reject' instead.
Breaking a friendship can be done in three ways.
  • From your 'Contacts and Friends' page, uncheck the box for friend for the particular person and save the changes. If you no longer wish them to be a contact either, uncheck both boxes for that person.
  • In your 'Profile Page', click 'Friends' and then click 'Break Friendship' next to the user's name.
  • In the other person's profile, click 'Friends' then find your username and click 'Break Friendship'.

Campfires & Titles

The number of campfires are dependent on the number of posts.

0 to 9 = No fire
10 to 74 = 1 campfire
75 to 249 = 2 campfires
250 to 499 = 3 campfires
500 to 999 = 4 campfires
1000 to 2499 = 5 campfires
2500 to 4999 = 6 campfires
5000 to 9999 = 7 campfires
10,000 and up = 8 campfires
Each 5000 posts above 10,000 one campfire will turn blue

The user title is also dependent on the number of posts.

Junior Member = 0 - 29 posts
Member = 30 - 99 posts
Senior Member - 100 or more posts

A user title can be changed, however just as with user names, it must be G-rated.

New Posts vs Todays Posts

The link to Todays Posts can be found in the drop down menu under Quick links on the upper nav bar and is go to place for a fast update on all forum posting activity.

The link to Todays posts will return all threads that have been updated since your last login.

The link to New Posts is located in the center of the nav bar and functions differently. It will only display posts you have not looked at and this includes any posts you have made. It doesn't really give a complete list of new posts - just ones you have not read.

Violations, Warnings and Infractions

We work very hard to make sure the members are aware of our Community Rules. We private message the member a link to the rule and let them know which one they violated. Once we are certain a member is aware of the rules but continues to disregard them or violate them our next step is to give them an Official Warning. This is like a cop pulling you over for speeding and letting you go telling you not to do it again or they will give you a ticket.

Once a member has been Officially Warned we then move to a 3 strikes system. One each latter offense we issue a strike. If they reach three strikes (happens rarely) we then (as a team) talk about the appropriate action to take. Our options are to ban the member for good or issues them a short little "time out" with just a week or two ban.

It's very unusual for members to be banned, most understand and follow our rules as the above process moves along. Some like to play games and push the limits and those can sometimes get two strikes before they shape up. Others could care less, live life on their own terms and are unwilling to obied by our rules and they end up at the other RV forum.

It's not a perfect system but we try our hardest to be even in our enforcing of the rules and make the best of the tools we have. This is a very kind and respectful community and that's because our members are kind and respectful people, not because we have rules. The rules are just there so when we have someone who's not willing to respect the same boundaries we can point to the guidelines and they will know where the line in the sand is drawn.

An infraction = strike. An infraction served would be a strike that was issued but as time passes they "fall off your record" just like points with police tickets. If we get members who play games waiting for their strikes to be "served" and then start pushing the limits again, at some point we will simply show them the door and their access will be removed.
