I suppose those have been banned?

Then why are they allowed to post gas prices & continue to gain points?

Thanks

Sad news to report. Our buddy olefin suffered a massive heart attack, and died on Friday. I have asked mudsprings to start a topic in the IN MEMORIAM section. Please pray for his wife, Betty. I will post the obituary as soon as she sends it to me.

Hope they can't earn prizes.

After all as we discovered recently, you only need to register to win. Yes you can win without every posting a single gas price.

I gotta read what I post better. Sorry:( I meant to say

Scout was just being Scout? I was pointing out that the link didn't garner the what the poster was commenting about. If that is Scout being Scout then so be it!

Olefin, I tend to agree. I think someone said the reasoning for them to still be able to post and earn points was so they thought they were still able to "participate" in some manner and would not take some sort of retribution for being banned.

If the want that, there should be a total shadow board that shows w/out filtering the banned members. But, that wouldn't work either - as they could log out and see everything as it really appears w/out them.

I don't fully buy the reasoning to keep the banned members in the list or allow them point earning.

<<Banned members can continue to post prices and forum messages but those prices and messages are supposed to be invisible to non-banned members. Point totals for banned members remain on the leader boards and will increase if the member continues to post invisible prices and messages.>>

That's where I disagree, I think banned members total points should not be on the leader boards. But most sure that will never change.
Also don't understand why any banned member would continue to post gas prices.

Interesting

What you need to do is replace what the "Insert Link" uses for the URL with the actual URL.

Sorry Scout, but your remark came across poorly and did not explain to the OP the issue with his link as evidenced by his response to you.

<<<olefin,

That link takes you to your local Point Leaders board and none of those members are Pittsburgh members. >>>

Of course the link would take the OP to to his local Point Leader board which would not have Pittsburgh members. That is the link he thought he was providing -- one to HIS (ARKANSAS) local Point Leader board. He didn't realize the software would translate his link to the local site of the person clicking on the link.

Thanks TxJeans I knew that. I was just trying to point out what happens in case others find the same thing.

Scout, that link was posted for Arkansas, but when you click it it will convert to the local site (for me Tampa, for you Pittsburgh). Go over to the Arkansas site and then go to the forum and click on the link. Seriously, not that hard to figure out.

Or, click the link and then replace "pittsburgh" with "arkansas" and refresh...

I'm not concerned with the Pittsburgh list.

Lack of a profile usually (always?) means that the member has been banned. Banned members can continue to post prices and forum messages but those prices and messages are supposed to be invisible to non-banned members. Point totals for banned members remain on the leader boards and will increase if the member continues to post invisible prices and messages.

Will you please provide a few examples? Occasionally a few members who are banned are still able to post stuff for others to see.
