Can you tell me about the Member Groups

WESTERN SYDNEY SWINGERS

MEMBER GROUPS

 

 

Western Sydney Swingers has  5 MAIN MEMBER GROUPS These Member Groups have been set up in a way so as to reward those who are regularly active on the site and attend our Meet and Greets. We also have 2 Member Groups being the VERIFIED MEMBER and GOLD MEMBER Groups that indicate that members of these 2 groups have met the Site Administrators face to face who have verified that they are who they say they on their profile which in the case of a COUPLE means that both have met Site Admin together who have VERIFIED that they are in fact a REAL COUPLE and not FAKE. Those Members who are verified and who we see being regularly active on the site and who attend a Meet from time to time will be rewarded by being upgraded to The GOLD Member Group that has additional privileges where the limits for many of the site features are all set to either UNLIMITED or to a very high value. 

 

We will be endeavouring to make the VERIFIED member group Western Sydney Swingers main member group encouraging every member to be verified. What that will mean to every member is that anytime you  look at a profile or communicate with another member and see that they are a verified member, you can be certain that they are who and what they say they are and NOT FAKE as can so often be the case on the larger commercial sites.  Please see below for details of how to become verified.
 

 

NEW MEMBERS

When a new member joins Western Sydney Swingers their Member Profile is automatically placed in the NEW MEMBER group and the system will send a validation email to the email address used during the registration process. Once you have clicked on a link in the email to validate your registration and email address your account will be activated and you will be able to log in using the password you up when registering. 

 

As a New Member there are a number of restrictions placed on your account that do not apply to other member groups, however once we have checked your profile and provided there are no problems you will be upgraded to BRONZE and the restrictions removed. If we find a problem with your profile we will place it into the REJECTED member group which will result in further restrictions being placed on your account. To have these restrictions removed and be upgraded to BRONZE and you will need to edit your profile then once you have made the necessary amendments contact us so that we can check it again. PLEASE take note of the field descriptions when editing your profile.

 

We endeavour to check new registrations daily but please keep in mind that we do this in our free time and have lives and commitments other than this site so at times it may take a little longer but not usually more than 48 hours.

Our aim is for the VERIFIED group to be our member group with as many of our members as possible becoming VERIFIED. We encourage EVERY member to be VERIFIED.   There are a number of benefits resulting from this the main one being that every member when viewing a profile, chatting with or communicating with another member and can see on their profile that they have been verified can be absolutely certain that they are NOT FAKE and are who and what their profile describes them as being. We also REWARD those members who get verified with increased limits and their own VERIFIED MEMBERS ONLY CHAT ROOM.

 

To become verified all you need to do is contact us so that we can arrange to meet you face to face or come along to any of the meets and come up and see us so that we can verify that you are who you say you are on your profile. Should you be unable to meet us or come to any of the meets to meet us there are other ways we can verify you. We can use the webcam room here on the site or Skype and have you put your cam on and hold your licence up beside your face on cam so that we can see that the photo on the licence matches the face of the person holding it.  If you are unable to do this either then still please contact us so that we can see what else we can do to verify you.

elmerfudd.gif STANDARD MEMBER

Those who email addresses bounce when we periodically perform checks  and/or those who have not signed into the site for a period of 2 years or more are placed into this Member Group.  While this member group is much the same as the Bronze Member group they have had limits and restrictions placed on them due to the reasons they have been placed into this group,  the main one being that the email address on their profile is bouncing when we check which tells us that it is either a fake or invalid email address or is no longer active or in use. 

 

Should anyone who is a member of the Standard Member group come back and start using the site again and provided they have a valid and working email address, once they MESSAGE US via the support system or via a PM, will be upgraded to the BRONZE Member Group.

I have just joined and validated my account as required but find I am limited to what I can do on the site.  Why is that?

NEW MEMBERS 

As a New Member there are a number of restrictions placed on your account however once we have checked your profile and provided there are no problems you will be upgraded to BRONZE and the restrictions removed.

If we find a problem with your profile we will place it into the REJECTED member group and you will need to edit it before we will upgrade it to Bronze. Should you find that your profile has been rejected you will need to let us know when you have made the necessary amendments so that we can go back and check it again. A common reason for profiles to be rejected is due to the person joining the site as a single or without their partner and ignoring the profile field descriptions and including all their partners details on their profile. PLEASE take note of the field descriptions.

We will endeavour to check New Member registrations every day but please keep in mind that unlike the large commercial sites who employ people to do this, we do it in our free time. Just like anyone else we have other interests and things that require our time and from time to time we like to enjoy a weekend away, so on occasion you will just have to be a little patient as we may not always be able to check your profile the same day you register.

I have found that I am now a STANDARD member when I was previously in another member group - why is that?

PLEASE CHECK THAT YOUR PROFILE

HAS A VALID AND CURRENT EMAIL ADDRESS

 

We regularly check all member email addresses to ensure that all email addresses are current, valid and working, IE: not out of date, no longer valid or FAKE. Anyone whose email address BOUNCES - IS UN-DELIVERABLE  or is  UNKNOWN will be moved to the STANDARD MEMBER Group which has various restrictions such as limiting the number of new messages members of this group can create each day.   This one of the ways we are actively working to keep scammers and those with fake profiles from the site. 

 

SHOULD YOU FIND YOURSELF IN THE STANDARD MEMBERS group and would like to be upgraded back to BRONZE or the group they were previously in, once you have updated the email address in your profile settings or have again become an active member, if you contact us via the CONTACT US link or PM Admin, after checking that your email address is not bouncing you will be upgraded out of the Standard Member Group.

I have not logged into the site for sometime and now find I am in the STANDARD member group. What can I do to be ugraded?

NON ACTIVE MEMBERS

 

We have been and will continue to regularly check for NO ACTIVE MEMBERS, being those who have NOT SIGNED IN for 2 years or more. We have created a member group called STANDARD MEMBERS. The Standard Member group as far as privileges and access goes is similar to the Bronze Member group but with restrictions on the number of posts/comments and PM's that can be sent in a 24hr period. 

 

SHOULD YOU FIND YOURSELF IN THE STANDARD MEMBERS group and would like to be upgraded back to BRONZE or the group they were previously in, once you have again become an active member, if you contact us via the CONTACT US link or PM Admin, once we can see that you are again being active on the site you will be upgraded.
