User levels and access
We have numerous user levels setup here.

1. The starting primary group is 'New user' which carries 1 star. As you post, contribute and stay on the site your levels will increase until you reach the level of 'Respected user'.

2. We have additional groups which carry their own unique features. 'Verified users' can access the restricted area, 'Swap users' can use the transfer and swap section while 'site supporters' can access the special offers and email section.

3. Even within the primary groups additional allowances are granted as you go through the levels. This ranges from additional rep points, additional post and thread limits to the ability to change your username and site signature. For usernames please note that this also exists for site supporters.
