User Groups and Rights
Members - New members with less than 5 posts. While in this group there are certain restrictions on what files you can upload and you are unable to start topics in certain forums. There is a lot of wasted resources used by members who register, upload massive photos and avatars and then leave the forum without posting.
Full Members - Members with more than 5 posts. No restrictions.
AutoIt MVPs - Members who are judged by the community to be helpful, who write and share useful code, who help the development of AutoIt.

Moderators - The forum police. This is not a democracy and each of the mods has their own distinct personality. They have the rights to edit posts, delete posts, ban users, delete users, IP ban, etc. Let the poster beware
Developers - A small group of users with access to the AutoIt source code and who have contributed significantly to the internal development of AutoIt. Some of them are also Moderators.
No formal policy for the use of signatures but if a moderator thinks it is too big and/or distracting then you may be asked to tone it down. Noone likes wading through signatures that are a page high.
Each user group has a size allowance for uploading attachments to the board. Attachments already take up an enormous amount of space so the general policy is that attachments that have been posted over 90 days and have been viewed less than 5 times. If it was viewed that few times it cannot be considered useful
Attached pictures over a year old will also be deleted.
