    A new group of members has made it to Gold membership. Gold a member group that is higher than palladium and lower than Platinum. Gold Members have access to the Gold forum, Vendor Review System and the Sources forums.

    Gold members have contributed to Drugs-Forum greatly and have received many positive ratings from other members. You can safely say that their opinion, advise and informative contributions are valued and respected dearly. Each of them have made stellar contributions and therefore now make the Gold standard.

    To qualify for an update to Gold membership, members must meet following requirements:
    • Membership duration of at least 60 days.
    • Posted in the last 60 days.
    • High reputation & Trophy points.
    • Gathered many trophies. Please see here.
    • Making use of the reputation system (giving out at least 50 ratings with both positive and negative points. Members should recently have given ratings)
    • Recent reputation ratings are not negative.
    • 150 quality posts.
    • Reputation to post ratio is at least 1.
    • Filed recent reports.
    • Added Products / Companies to the Reviews Section.
    • Added 50 tags.
    • No recent warnings nor active warning points.
    • Less than 5 reports where filed against you recently.
    • Account & Profile is in order.
    • Uploaded an Avatar
    • Donating is beneficial but not required for promotions.
    • Forum Crew work is beneficial but not required for promotions.
    It has been a long time since the last promotions. We have a lot of catching up to do. Now that the functionality for promotions is available, this promotion round is just the first of many.

    After review of the following accounts, I am happy congratulate these members with their deserved upgrade to Gold membership:
    Please congratulate these members with their accomplishment. Also consider to leave a kind message on their profile.

    If you did not make it this promotion, then don't worry. There are a large number of members who are very close to promotion and who almost make the requirements. There are also a large number of members who only miss the requirement of actively posting. It will not be long until the next promotion. Just take a look at the above requirements and especially the trophies that you can gather.

    I thank you, @Alfa, for the honour to be a member in that exclusive group.

    It has, due to the software upgrades I surmise, taken quite some times for these gold promos to happen.

    I want to congratulate the other five, no names without merits under them.

    Have a happy 2018 and more everyone!

    BBW

    edit:
    Special thanks to the poor staff member who had to review my 5900 posts. might be a reason to have promos a bit more often ;) rofl
