    Default What are the entitlements of a new member?

    I heard that as a new member, I am entitled to 10 private messages, and if I am "promoted" to member, I will get space for 50 private messages?
    What are the other entitlement or restrictions that a new member or a member have? Is the rights to poll included?

    entitled is not the word to use

    you are not entitled with anything
    everything can be taken away if you don't play nice
    so it is not an entitlement

    You are granted some more features. Its a grant. Well, one of them is voting in polls.

    I OT a bit.
    This enquiry on entitlement.
    Reminds me of my friend telling me the first thing PRC China ladies do when they land in Singapore is go find out what are their rights to the money, CPF account of hubby and assets if they get PR, married to a local and then divorced. They got a game plan from the start.

    Well as said before there is a difference between entitlement and being granted the privilege.

    Think you should refrain from posting such comments.

    Only non-alcoholic drinks are allowed here.

    We don't want people to get drunk and destructive and start slamming every photo or grammatical mistake they see.

    This has got to be one of the funnier thread titles around.

    well, here's a good example of what kind of people talk about entitlements vs privileges. only 2 users here are talking about having privileges not entitlements. what's their rank in this CS community?

    same goes for real life. sadly.

    As members you are a guest here so I am not sure of what is entitlement. We as mod and or the SU NO NOT have entitlement too. We have the same privileges (except a bit more) as members.

    I remember clearly someone who takes it as his entitlement and rights to fly first class, pay what ever amount to anyone he likes etc etc etc because he was the boss. Sadly he forgot that there is no such thing as entitlement but it was also privilege granted to him.

    u know ah, you say this kind of thing is the reason why always kena grill

    i know what you're talking about but i don't think this is what's going on here.

    actually the whole discussion is a bit silly. it's just a member wanting to know when and how he can get more pm msgs and can join in polls. let's not let it slip into arguments over semantics or politics?
