    When you want to sell on BCUK you need to be a Full Member (FM).

    FM's pay a small fee (starting at 15 GBP/year), to support the website. In return they'll get certain privileges like discounts at outdoorshops, discounted BushMoot ticket, extra space for Private Messages, access to the Full Member forum, sell in Members Classifieds, etc.

    Click here for more info by Tony.

    Hobbyist makers can sell their items in Makers Market after subscribing as a Maker, they share the same privileges as FM's.

    For an overview of all privileges, you can click the link below.

    Click here for more information or to become a FM. Please note that blogs (a FM benefit) are no longer available on BCUK.

    If you want to become a FM or Maker, but rather pay by cheque - please contact any Moderator or Admin and they will help you from there.

    These titles or ranks are based on the amount of posts you made. It doesn't mean anything else. There are 8 ranks:

    Member: 1
    - Active Member: 20
    - Tenderfoot: 50
    - Forager: 100
    - Nomad: 250
    - Settler: 500
    - Native: 1,000
    - Bushcrafter, boy I've got alot to say!: 3000+

    Than there are also:
    - Full Members & Makers (members who paid a subscription)
    - Moderators
    - Administrators (Admin).

    These last 4 have a double rank: Mod & Native at the same time; or Full Member & Tenderfoot, etc.

    You can post videos in 2 ways. Please note you can't store the videos you made on the BCUK fora. For this you need a host like YouTube.

    Insertion method
    1. Create a new post (new thread or as a reply in an already excisting thread as you would do normally).
    2. Make sure you're settings are in the Advanced mode. If you can see smilies, you're OK. If not. Go to your User CP to Edit your settings.
    3. Click on this icon: [​IMG]
    4. Enter URL in the pop-up screen
    5. Click OK

    Copy / Paste method
    1. See above.
    2. Copy URL of the video you want to post.
    3. Write in your post the following code (without spaces):

    [video ]

    4. Paste the URL of your video directly after the code you just typed.
    5. Write directly after your video's URL the following code (without spaces):

    [/video ]

    6. Continue with writing your post.

    6. Can post new threads
    7. Can reply to threads (see below, under #8)
    8. See the calendar
    9. Can only send 1 PM at a time

    Though you can not
    1. Use Email to Friend function
    2. Download Attachments
    3. See Deletion Notices
    4. Edit your posts
    5. Upload any pictures
    6. Use signatures in your sig line
    7. Post visitors messages
    8. Reply to any threads in the classifieds, swaps & group buys
    9. Start a thread in the Traders area
