  1. Default How to 'Recommend Award'?


    1 Not allowed!
    I'd like to recommend an award to a worthy user.
    Yet when trying any of the recommend award links,
    I continue to get this error message.......

    "pRED, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

    Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?

    I'm wondering if they jus no longer work, I've not been a member long enough or I have not earned enough rep???

    The first section of awards, the "of the month" awards, are earned by members votes in the competition threads. You only recommend a MOTM in the nomination thread, the rest of the "of the month" awards you enter a picture from the the threads that Cliff starts at the beginning of each month.

    The next two sections, the excellent photo skill and achievement awards, are awards only William gives out. I suppose if you think someone deserves these you could pm William, but it is his choice whether or not someone deserves these.

    The rest of awards can be requested or recommended by using the links on the right in each section. They are the only ones that can be requested or recommended at the moment.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    :) This was clear as rain, but thanks.

    Yes. It is the Bronze achievement award that interested me. I will send William a pm perhaps, but the recommend link does not work there.

    The recommend link doesn't work on those also, hence from OP, "when trying any of the recommend award links,
    I continue to get this error message......"

    I am using a Mac OS X 10.6.8 on Firefox 21.0 if this helps, William.

    If its for something you have achieved, then use the request award link.

    Which award are you trying to request ?
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Not once have I used the word "request" in my above posts..?
    I wanted to "recommend" the Bronze Achievement (#3). mommy 1 cleared that up by saying William gives these out....yet there is a 'recommend award' link that does not only work there (for me), but NONE of them work.
    I get the error message posted above. Sorry if I'm not being clear enough.

    OK, now I understand

    Sounds like something is not working right

    Perhaps you could send William a PM just in case he doesn't see this thread. He would have to look into this one.

    Thanks Cliff.
    To suffice, I sent a 'award recommendation' PM to you and William both.

    In the meantime, it would be helpful to know if others are experiencing the same, and/or can duplicate the issue (with the 'Recommend Award' links on the Award tab atop the forum).

    I tried to recreate the error but could not. I have been getting (and processing) a few award requests each week so I can not offer much help.

    William, I hope this info can help you narrow down what could be going on here.

    I find the "Award" section a bit confusing, too. Any award with "Recommend" next to it gives me the same error message as pRED, if I choose to "Recommend"....in the top section

    The awards with both "Recommend" and "Request" will work to a degree, if I choose the "Request" (award) for whatever purpose

    Another member told me I should "Request" a ribbon for an achievement I made on the forum, and it took a little while (for me) to figure out what it meant, and how to do it.

    I think the awards section could use a bit of improvement, user-friendly wise

    Just my 2 cents

    EDIT: When I click on "Awards", the first thread on the page is a "MOTM 2009"...with a "Recommend" button to the right...why would anyone rec that thread?...or any of many of the following threads?

    Seems like the first section of the "Awards" tab should not have a working "Rec..." link.
