RRDi Active vs Inactive Members

Recommended Posts

  • Root Admin


The RRDi is now showing the active members vs the inactive members in member's profiles, since the non voting and the voting members haven't been engaging in any rosacea discussion for some time now.

All you do is login to your account. Look at your account profile and it shows whether you are active or inactive. If you haven't posted in the last 30 days you are automatically placed in the inactive member group. Just post in any area open to guests and you automatically become active again and have access to the member area

Because of a relatively inactive forum 'engagement' with fellow rosaceans which is really core to our mission (view the RRDi Mission) we have attempted to encourage members to post. Members, you are our only hope! Post! Read our mission goal below: 

Goal #7: To allow volunteer members to have a platform to voice their concerns about rosacea and to contribute information about rosacea. Our goal is 10K members. 

Since the vast majority of our 1.5K members are not engaging in any discussion, we inform everyone whether a member is active or inactive. 

The definition of an active member is one who posts a minimum of at least one post a month. If after one month a member does not post the member status is inactive. This means that access will be visible to what a 'guest' user will be able to see. A member who is inactive may still post in the areas guests are allowed to view and automatically becomes an active member again, if the member posts again.  

Active members will be able to view more content on our website about rosacea for thirty days and can enjoy the content (MEMBER FORUM). If they want to continue to view the content they must at the minimum continue with at least one post in the thirty day period, hopefully with some meaningful contribution to their fellow rosaceans who have joined the community, contributing to our Goal #7 mentioned above. 

Ask not what rosaceans can do for you, but what can you do for rosaceans? Rosaceans Helping Rosaceans

INACTIVE MEMBER Steps to Become Active
If you are a current non voting or voting member and not able to view certain parts of our website for content simply post something about rosacea or what you are using to treat your rosacea to become ACTIVE again.

(1) Login to your account. Post in any area of the website that Guests are allowed to view and post. Find the reply to top button or the start new topic button and post. Posting makes you active. 

If you have forgotten your login credentials use our contact form and give us your email address you used to register your account and we will help you gain back your access. 

We will be happy to restore your active status once you have posted which gives you thirty days to view the rosacea forums for rosacea content. To continue as an active member requires you post at least one post a month which shows you are active and that encourages your fellow rosaceans to also be active since you are setting an example. 

(2) Another way to become active is donate one dollar. That surely shows activity and we will happily change your status to an active member for thirty days. However, we need to know that you are an inactive member and that you donated a dollar to change your status since the change has to be done manually. Contact us

Inactive Members Can Still Post!
How can inactive members post and become an active member again?  Simple. Find an area you would like to post something, For example, any area still open to guests that allow you to START A NEW TOPIC or QUOTE button. Just be sure you are logged into your RRDi member account. Post. That makes you active again!

Another area you can post is the Guest Forum. Be sure to be logged into your account so the post counts toward your activity with your account.  

If you are having issues logging into your RRDi member account use the contact form and explain your issue. Be sure to include your email address so we can resolve your login issue for you, if you want a resolution. 

New Members
If you are a new member you will remain as ACTIVE automatically for thirty days. If you post at least one post you will automatically be given an additional 30 days, actually from the date of your post. So let's say you post on the day you joined. The post count starts then. If you post on the 29th day after you joined, you will then get 30 more days as an active member.  

If you simply join the RRDi and never post you are basically a guest who roams our site consuming our rosacea data and not engaging, basically what we refer to as a 'lurker.'  As long as you remain a lurker (inactive member) and not post within 30 days you will be inactive and be switched to an inactive member with guest privileges which allows you to post in areas of our forum still accessible to you. 

We are trying to encourage engagement. Rosaceans helping Rosaceans.
